Capital Gains

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is the tax payable when you sell, or ‘dispose of’ an asset that has increased in value while you owned it. The asset could be an investment, like shares in a company, or it could be a physical possession like a piece of land or a work of art. Some gifts, such as those given to children, count as disposals for CGT purposes.

CGT doesn’t affect many people. However, if you are liable for CGT, it can have a major impact on your wealth. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and get professional advice, so you don’t end up paying more than you need to.
