Capital Gains Tax Explained

Capital gains tax pertains to the levy imposed on the earnings accrued from the sale of taxable assets, such as real estate or land.

This tax is applicable to the gains upon selling a property that isn't your primary dwelling. The payable CGT amount hinges on various factors, including the duration of property ownership, your income tax bracket, and any applicable reliefs or allowances.

How CGT Tax Calculations are calculated

Calculate the gain:
You need to calculate the gain you made on the disposal of the property. Disposing an asset can mean a sale, transfer, gift or gain in compensation.
Deduct any allowable expenses:
You can deduct certain expenses, such as the cost of renovations, from the gain to arrive at the taxable gain.
Apply any reliefs or allowances:
You may be eligible for certain reliefs or allowances that can reduce the taxable gain, such as letting relief or the annual exempt amount.
Calculate the tax:
Once you have arrived at the taxable gain, you will need to calculate the amount of CGT you owe. The current CGT rates in the UK are 18% for basic rate taxpayers and 28% for higher and additional rate taxpayers.
Report and pay the tax:
You will need to report the sale of the property and pay any CGT owed to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) within 30 days of the completion date.
