Capital Gains Tax Advice in Kingston upon Thames

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) planning is a must for anyone who is intending to make a disposal of business assets - for example, a share of an unincorporated business, shares in a company or a property used in the business.

The basic principle is that CGT is charged on the difference between what was paid for an asset and what is received when the asset is sold, less whatever annual CGT exemption has not already been set against other gains. However, the rate of CGT payable varies - it can be 28%, 18%, 10% or even nil - and the rate you end up paying can often be determined by the CGT planning you do prior to the sale.
