Capital Gains Tax.

For many, Capital Gains Tax is an impenetrable subject that ties their personal or businesses finance in knots. We’re here to untangle them, and make sure you get the best advice available.

Expert Capital Gains Tax Advice

Firstly, what is it? Capital Gains Tax is payable to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) when an individual, trust or company sells, transfers or gifts property (tangible or intangible) to another entity realising a financial gain. 

As with most taxes, there are numerous exemptions and reliefs available, most of which are complex and require specialist advice. That’s where Dains comes in.

Some assets are not liable to Capital Gains Tax, whereas others are only liable above a certain value.

There is also an annual allowance, enabling individuals to make small gains on disposals each year without paying any tax at all.

If you own anything of value and decide to sell it, you potentially fall within the realms of Capital Gains Tax. If you do not inform HMRC of your disposal, you could also be liable to interest and possible penalties. 

Complicated and detailed calculations are required in order to finalise how much Capital Gains Tax is payable on the disposal of a particular asset. There are many reliefs and exemptions available, which can reduce or eliminate your tax bill, and should help ensure you pay the minimum amount of Capital Gains Tax. 

By knowing what deductions can be made in computing the taxable gain, we can make a substantial impact on the actual Capital Gains Tax payable, whether the disposal has been made or is being considered.
