Capital Gains Tax

Capital gains tax can be a barrier to inheritance tax planning and can also be an unwelcome expense when passing assets to the next generation. There are, a number of reliefs and exemptions that can be used to reduce your liability.  However, it is essential that you plan ahead and put in place the correct structure to ensure you are eligible for the exemptions.

Our solicitors are specialists in tax planning and can assist with the following:

  • Availability of principal private residence relief in the context of gifts or sales of property;
  • Use of ‘hold over’ relief in the context of transfers of business assets or assets into or out of trusts;
  • The availability of ‘entrepreneur’s relief’ in relation to the sale of business assets; and
  • Disposals made by trustees and personal representatives.
