What is Capital Gains Tax
Capital gains tax is a tax on the profit which you get from the sale of an asset. You do not have to pay CGT if your income for the tax year is less than your annual tax benefits. However, if you do choose to transfer your assets to your partner, please be aware that if you subsequently sell the asset, you will be charged for the asset based on the profits you made as a married couple. If you do not make full use of your CGT services in a particular financial year, you cannot carry them over to the following year.
There are two different Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rates in the UK; one for the properties and for other assets for the financial year 2021/22. The basic rate for the property is 18% and for the assets, it is 10%. The higher or additional rates are 28% for the property and 20% for the assets. The personal CGT allowance for tax year 2021/22 is £ 12,300.
The annual capital gain allocation is the amount of profit a person can earn from the sale of their assets in the fiscal year. In certain circumstances, a married couple can reap the benefits.
