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.Dr M.

Do I pay capital gains tax on property?
You will have to pay capital gains tax on the ‘gain’ from any sale or disposal of property that is not your main home (Principle Private Residence). For example:
- Buy-to-let properties
- Inherited Property
Any gain made from the sale or disposal of business assets (land or buildings) are also subject to capital gains tax.
If you are a landlord or private individual looking to understand your tax liability on the sale or potential sale of a property, please get in touch to see how we can help. There may also be tax relief available to you.
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.
