Capital Gains Tax
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is payable when assets are ‘disposed of’ at a profit’.
Importantly, current rates of CGT range between 10% and 28%, whereas Income Tax (IT) rates can be up to 60%. It may therefore be worthwhile considering if your affairs can be arranged to ensure that you receive capital profits (subject to CGT) rather than income profits (subject to IT).
Our advice does not end there, once it is established that the profits are capital in nature there are many complicated rules which impact on the amounts ultimately chargeable and payable. The reliefs and exemptions applicable to this tax are numerous and easily overlooked.
Our tax advisers include some of the most highly qualified and experienced professionals in the industry and are therefore ideally placed to identify any opportunities to minimise your CGT liability.
