Guide to navigating CGT

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is the tax on the profit you make when you sell or ‘dispose of’ an asset that has increased in value during your ownership. It is important to note that the tax is levied only on the gain made from the sale, not the total sale price.


CGT is important whether you’re selling property, shares or valuable personal items, as each type of asset has different rules and rates. For example, selling a second home or investment property can attract a higher rate of CGT than other assets. Certain allowances and exemptions can also make a big difference to the amount of tax you pay.


We have put together a guide that examines CGT in-depth, covering everything from how it is calculated to the allowances, exemptions, and reliefs available. By understanding these subtleties, you can plan better, be tax-compliant, and potentially save a lot of money.
