A Capital Gains Tax update
From 6 April 2016, Capital Gains Tax rates fell from 18% to 10% for gains taxed at the basic rate and from 28% to 20% for higher rate gains.
The tax rate has also reduced to 20% for chargeable gains of trustees and personal representatives.
The new lower rates apply to most chargeable gains including shares and other financial assets but does not include gains which arise on residential properties.
So, the availability of the Capital Gains tax exemption for the main residence becomes even more important.
It could be said that capital gains have become attractive again. However you need our advice to judge whether they are the right type of gains.
