What assets are subject to capital gains tax?

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) in the United Kingdom is applicable to a broad spectrum of assets upon their sale or disposal, resulting in a profit. These assets encompass:

  • Real estate: Residential and commercial properties, as well as land. Some exemptions may apply to primary residences.
  • Shares and securities: Gains from the sale of shares in companies and other securities typically fall under CGT.
  • Business assets: Machinery, equipment, goodwill, and other business assets may trigger CGT when sold or disposed of.
  • Personal possessions: High-value personal items such as art, antiques, jewellery, and collectables are subject to CGT if they are sold for a profit.
  • Cryptocurrencies: Digital assets, including cryptocurrencies, are considered chargeable assets, making gains from their sale liable to CGT.
  • Foreign assets: Assets held overseas come under CGT if you are a UK tax resident. Special rules and exemptions may apply based on your circumstances.
  • Investment assets: Investments in assets like bonds, unit trusts, and certain offshore funds may generate CGT when sold.
  • Business interests: The sale or disposal of shares in a trading company or partnership can lead to CGT liability.
