If you are considering selling or giving away an asset that has increased in value, Capital Gains Tax (CGT) may apply to any profits made. However, with careful planning and expert guidance, you can benefit from a range of CGT reliefs and allowances.
The CGT advisers here at David Owen have many years’ experience in assisting clients with their personal tax affairs. We can help you navigate the rules of CGT, minimising the tax burden when you sell or gift any significant assets liable for CGT, including properties, shares, and businesses.
Whilst everyday items generally qualify for a CGT exemption, the allowances and reliefs available to individuals parting with assets liable for CGT have undergone several changes over the years, so it is well worth seeking advice before making any decisions.
Timing can be critical when it comes to the sale or disposal of an asset. Our CGT specialists will work closely with you, developing an in-depth understanding of your current circumstances before recommending a course of action, and handling any CGT due to HMRC.
Our expert CGT advice covers many areas, including:
• Disposal of the primary residence
• Roll-over relief
• Entrepreneurs’ relief
• Gift relief
• Reinvestment relief
CGT is chargeable on the sum of gains and losses accrued in any tax year. By using our CGT planning service, you could make considerable savings in the long run.
Once we have a clear picture of your financial situation, we can manage certain transactions for you or stagger them accordingly, allowing you to minimise or completely eliminate the CGT burden.
By enlisting our help early on, you can ensure that your financial plans for the future are as tax-efficient as possible. From CGT on property to trusts, our experienced accountants are here to provide expert guidance you can rely on.
