Here’s a Capital Gains Tax Round Up

Here’s a capital gains tax round up from Stockport Accountants, IN Accountancy, and if you would like any advice on CGT issues, please contact us on 0161 456 9666:

  • The current rates of capital gains tax (CGT) are 18% to the extent that total taxable income does not exceed the basic rate band and 28% thereafter.
  • The government is to reduce the higher rate of CGT from 28% to 20% and the basic rate from 18% to 10%. The trust CGT rate will also reduce from 28% to 20%.
  • The 28% and 18% rates will continue to apply for carried interest and for chargeable gains on residential property that do not qualify for private residence relief. In addition, the 28% rate still applies for ATED related chargeable gains accruing to any person (principally companies).
  • These changes will take effect for disposals made on or after 6 April 2016.
  • The rate for disposals qualifying for Entrepreneurs’ Relief (ER) remains at 10% with a lifetime limit of £10 million for each individual.
