Capital Gains Tax
accountants at your service

When you sell an asset that has gone up in value, like property, antiques or a business, you may find that you need to pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT). Planning for this on your own can be tough – at Golding Accountancy, we can help you navigate the complexities of CGT and minimise your tax burden.

HMRC levies Capital Gains Tax on the disposal of any chargeable asset gone up in value by a UK resident individual. The tax is paid on the profit made upon the sale. The rate at which CGT is charged will depend on the individual’s taxable income and the nature of the asset in question. Such assets may include:
Property apart from your home
Business assets such as machinery
Shares apart from those held in a PEP or ISA

Most personal possessions worth more than £‎6,000

Your home, under the following circumstances:
  • It has been let at any point in time
  • It is being used as your place of business
  • The land attached to it is significantly large
  • It hasn’t always been your main place of residence

Why take help for your
Capital Gains Tax planning?


The laws surrounding Capital Gains Tax can be quite complex. As a result, you may end up paying more than they owe. At Golding Accountancy, we have extensive knowledge of CGT and would be happy to help you reduce your tax bill when selling your assets. Things we can help you with include:

  • Whether your profit from the sale falls within your yearly tax-free allowance (in which case you don’t need to pay CGT)
  • How you and your spouse/partner can make the most of available allowances
  • Whether you can dispose of your assets as gifts
  • How CGT applies to special circumstances
CGT can be complex and often intersects with both personal and business finances. The best way to approach it is to start with a consultation. Get in touch today for the tax advice you never knew you needed!

Frequently Asked Questions

For the 2023/2024 tax year, CGT rates are 10% (18% for residential property) for your entire capital gain if your total annual income is less than £‎50,270 and 20% (28% for residential property) for your entire capital gain if your total annual income is above £‎50,270.

There are several ways to avoid paying CGT or reduce the amount you need to pay. For example, if you sell the main home you have lived in throughout and never let out (in whole or part) to anyone, you don’t need to pay CGT. Understanding CGT can be complicated, so we’re happy to do a free initial consultation to see how we can optimise your personal and business finances.
