Capital Gains Tax – Planning & Reporting
In our experience, individuals often assume that they can sell (or give away) an asset without any tax implications or reporting requirements. Sadly, more often than not, this is not the case unless you’ve determined whether any of the following valuable tax reliefs are available to reduce or postpone your Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liability:
- Rollover Relief
- Holdover Relief
- Private Residence Relief (PRR)
- Business Asset Disposal Relief (formally Entrepreneurs’ Relief)
- EIS and SEIS deferral and exemption
Different rates of CGT apply depending on the type of asset being disposed of and your income levels. There are a variety reliefs available which may reduce the tax payable.
It is important to take advice before you dispose of an asset; please speak to us in advance to discuss eligible tax reliefs and to understand how your transaction will be treated for CGT purposes.
Disposals of residential property require a report to be made, and any tax due to be paid, to HMRC within 60 days of completion. We can help with your reporting obligations and ensure any available reliefs are maximised.
