Standard and higher rates of capital gains tax (CGT) together with the annual exemption. The special rate of CGT and the limit applying for entrepreneurs’ relief purposes.
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is payable by individuals, trustees and 'personal representatives' (PRs). Companies pay corporation tax on their capital gains.
There are annual tax free allowances (the 'annual exempt amount') for individuals, trustees and PRs. Companies do not have an annual exempt amount.
For individuals net gains are added to 'total taxable income' to determine the appropriate rate of tax. The standard rate applies only to the net gains which, when added to total taxable income do not exceed the 'basic rate band'.
Gains which qualify for 'Investors' Relief' are charged at 10% for the first £10m of qualifying gains.
Gains which qualify for 'Business Asset Disposal Relief' are charged at 10% for the first £1 million.
The higher rate applies to higher rate and additional rate taxpayers.
Additionally, higher rates of 18% and 28% may apply to the disposal of certain residential property.
Initial meetings are free of charge and totally without obligation
These are unprecedented times with the “goalposts” changing every day. We are trying to continue to provide our clients with a first-class service but with many of our team working from home, this coupled with the need to stop non-essential contact means certain changes are inevitable.
We are aiming to conduct client meetings by video calls or phone calls where possible. We request people don’t come into the office unless necessary or you have a pre-arranged meeting (dropping off and collecting records etc is still ok). Whilst we are aiming to ensure the office remains open, please contact us (phone/email) before arriving.
We sincerely hope that none of the above creates a problem for you.
