Capital Gains Tax

What is capital gains tax?

Capital gains tax is a tax on profit when you sell (or dispose of) something (an asset) that increased in value. It’s the gain you make that is taxed, not the amount of money you receive.

Not all asset disposals are taxable and you may not have to pay tax if the gain is below your tax-free allowance, buts it’s important to review the rules to ensure you pay the correct tax.

Disposing of an asset is more than just selling something, capital gains tax could also arise if you give it away as a gift, transfer ownership to someone else, swap it from something else, or receive compensation for it e.g. insurance claims.
