Capital Gains Tax

What is Capital Gains Tax?

Assets that you own are known as capital items. A gain is an increase in its value. Capital Gains Tax is a tax on that gain.

You normally only pay Capital Gains Tax when you no longer own the asset - that is when you have disposed of it, either by selling it or giving it away.

Capital Gains Tax is chargeable on the difference between its worth (or market value) when you received it, and the value at the time of disposal. The tax is chargeable whether you receive money for it or not.
