What is capital gains tax?

What is capital gains tax?

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a tax on the gain when you sell or dispose of an asset that has increased in value.

Disposing of an asset includes:

  • Selling an asset – including business assets
  • Giving away an asset as a gift
  • Swapping an asset for something else
  • Getting compensation for an asset

Capital Gains Tax doesn’t apply to all assets, and the tax you’ll pay depends on if your gains in a given tax year fall under your tax-free allowance.

  • I started using DS Burge and Co following a recommendation from my brother. I have been with them now for 6 or 7 years now and I always find them to be extremely responsive and efficient. Kieran and Darius are extremely knowledgeable and up to date. I have recommended them to a number of friends who have started using them and then told me how good they. This reflects well on me but it has also confirmed my impression that they are a quality outfit.

  • I’ve been using Kieran from DS Burge & co for a number of years now and I can’t rate them highly enough. I had never used a professional accountant for my self assessment before, so was anxious at how it would work and what to expect. Kieran was fantastic, he put me at ease immediately and was great at explaining everything to me, and answered all my questions in a clear and extremely helpful way. Since our initial meet, he had always been incredibly responsive to any emails or calls from me. Very professional, super responsive, great service. I wouldn’t use anyone else.

Capital gains tax on the sale of shares

Alongside gains made on the sale or disposal of land and building assets, you may also need to pay capital gains tax on shares and other investments.

Examples of shares and investments that you may need to pay tax on includes:

  • Shares not wrapped in an ISA or PEP
  • Certain bonds, such as Premium Bonds

There are many other factors that apply to the Capital Gains Tax applicable to the sale or disposal of shares, for example:

  • The date the shares were bought and subsequently sold
  • Fees paid to stockbrokers
  • If shares were purchased as part of a ‘Rights Issue’ or through another vehicle such as an investment club.

Due to the many complexities surrounding the calculation of stocks and shares gains, combined with continually changing HMRC legislation, it’s easy to see why many businesses and individuals come to DS Burge & Co for Capital Gains Tax Advice.
