In one of the four webinars inclusive in 2014 Private Client Section membership, Alexandra Hollingshead examines recent changes to CGT and provides practical examples and case studies

Capital gains tax (CGT) calculating and reporting is a complex area that requires specialist expertise and up to date knowledge. Investigations into CGT underpayments have increased resulting in HMRC scooping £110m in 2012/13.

This webinar will examine recent changes to CGT as well as providing practical examples and case studies.

Areas to be covered include:

  • When does CGT arise, what are the rates and what are the main reliefs?
  • CGT on property – private residence relief and the final period exemption
  • Non-resident trusts and companies owning UK residential property – what happens?
  • The Government’s consultation on the forthcoming charge to CGT for non-residents disposing of UK residential property.

This webinar was recorded on 8th May 2014.
