Capital Gains Tax - £10,900 tax-free gains

  • 5th February 2014

Capital Gains Tax - £10,900 tax-free gains

Taxing realised gains.

Basics
Ordinarily, each person is entitled to make a gain tax free up to £10,900 (or up to £5,450 for trusts). Thereafter gains are taxed at a rate that is income dependent. Where taxable income is less than £32,010 the capital gains tax rate for gains up to the spare basic rate band allowance is 18 per cent. Thereafter this rises to 28 per cent. The rate applicable to a trust is 28 per cent. For business owners entrepreneurs' relief gives rise to a lower rate of 10 per cent for qualifying gains, which provides for a maximum reduction in tax of £1,800,000 (if the gain were £10 million, the current upper limit).

Planning pointers
What tax can be saved by maximising the advantage of family member tax-free exemptions? Should an asset that is going to be sold in the future be transferred into joint names? If a gain is going to be realised, are there other assets which are standing at a capital loss that can be used to reduce the quantum of your gains? If tax is due, are there ways of deferring or rolling over the gain?

If you have any questions or queries relating to Capital Gains Tax, please get in touch.

  • We had no hesitation in moving to BW Medical Accountants.  For any business your accountant is integral, and for us one of the most important factors to this relationship is to have a personal and trusting approach, which BW have undoubtedly achieved. 

    The service we receive and the interest they show in our practice assures us that they have a genuine interest in us and commitment to us.  More importantly they are always helpful and polite to answer even the dumbest of questions!  They give us confidence and reassurance knowing that they are always very up-to-date with all the numerous changes within general practice and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other practices seeking a professional and personal accountancy service.

  • We moved to BW Medical Accountants in 2013 and we are delighted that we have.  Having been in the same business for over 20 years it is important to have a relationship with the accountancy team but most importantly you need to have trust.  We made the decision to move our business to BW Medical Accountants and having worked with the Team especially Tina we are very satisfied.  Tina going through the accounts brought to our attention many things that I was not aware of in the past.  The first years' experience can only be described as excellent.

    Customer service is first and foremost with BW and this shines through as each and every one of them are approachable, helpful and most importantly understand and know the business.  General practice is complex and is going to get more complex in the coming years.  We need Accountants who truly understand our business. We as a practice and as individuals would certainly recommend BW Medical Accountants.

    Westbourne Medical Group, Sunderland
  • We changed to BW Medical Accountants during this financial year and I would say we have just had the most transparent and understandable end of year meeting and the best planning advice I have ever had in 16 years of practice.
