Capital Gains

Capital gains applies on the sale of most capital assets. Given the scale of asset price growth since the early 1990’s, the quantum of capital gains tax is large and the complexity of the legislation is such that the various anomalies to the legislation require careful navigation to avoid the traps and minimise any tax.

In recent years the capital gains net has widened and non-residents have been subject to capital gains on their UK property. Whilst we recommend you seek advice prior to any sale, below is a list of some of the reliefs available from capital gains.

  • Indexation allowance for companies
  • Relief for primary residences
  • Roll over reliefs
  • Investment reliefs
  • Exemptions from CGT
  • Negligible value claims
  • Entrepreneurs relief and other business exits
