Learn About The REAL Accounting


Capital Gains Tax is paid when a company makes a profit or sells part of, or all of, a business asset. There are several assets on which a company must pay Capital Gains Tax. These include buildings and land, fittings and fixtures, machinery and plant, Shares and Stocks, the business’s reputation – Goodwill, registered trademarks. Businesses are required to work out their gain to determine whether they are required to pay Capital Gains Tax. Sole traders and people in a business partner who are self-employed must pay Capital Gains Tax. In contrast, some other organisations, such as limited companies, pay Corporation Tax instead of profits from the sale of their assets. No Capital Gains Tax is paid on any gift to a spouse, civil partner or charity. With expert guidance from our skilled tax accountant, you can be sure that your company stays within the law when it comes to reporting and paying tax on your gain.
