Capital Gains Tax Relief

Capital Gains Tax (CGT)

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a tax payable by an individual on the gain or profit you make when you sell, give away or otherwise dispose of something – for example selling property or shares in a company. An individual has an annual tax-free allowance for Capital Gains Tax known as the ‘Annual Exempt Amount’ and for the tax year 2015-16 this is £11,100 for each individual and £5,550 for most trustees.
