Capital Gains Tax planning

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.

Expert Capital Gains Tax advice in Wiltshire

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
