Capital Gains Tax is charged on the profit made when disposing of certain assets e.g. property, shares, business assets or other investments. Usually this applies when the asset is sold. However a charge can also apply if the asset is gifted, transferred, swapped or even when compensation is received if an asset is lost or destroyed.
Depending on the asset there are numerous reliefs and exemptions available that can reduce or eliminate the tax payable and here at robinson+co our highly trained team can help in this complicated area.
