Frequently asked questions

The legislation around CGT is very complex, and as such it can be easy to find yourself paying the wrong amount of tax. There are several reliefs and exemptions that can be used to your advantage, so seeking assistance from a Capital Gains Tax accountant is highly beneficial.
Capital Gains Tax is a tax that’s levied on any profits (gains) that you make when you sell an asset that has increased in value. Capital Gains Tax accounting is the process of ensuring the right amount of tax is paid. This involves ensuring that relevant exemptions and reliefs are taken advantage of, so that you don’t pay too much tax.
Sometimes calculating CGT can be as simple as calculating the sale price of the item (for example, a property), minus the amount you paid for it, then applying the relevant tax rate. However, often the calculation is more complex, and might have to factor in, for example, the fact that the item was gifted or inherited, or that you live abroad. For this reason, it pays to get a CGT specialist involved.
HMRC has strict rules on declaring Capital Gains Tax, and sellers must now declare their gains within 60 days of the sale. If you don’t declare within the deadline, you could face a penalty and be liable for any interest owed on the payment.
The amount of tax you pay on an asset depends on its value and your Income Tax band. Basic rate payers will typically pay between 10% and 18% on gains, depending on their value, the taxpayer’s Personal Allowance and any other Income Tax reliefs they’re entitled to. Higher or additional rate payers will be charged 28% on property and 20% on gains from other assets (such as artworks, jewellery etc.)
