Capital Gains Tax changes for 2016/17 21st Sep 2016
Changes to Capital Gains Tax (CGT) and Entrepreneurs’ Relief Claims have been introduced in the Finance Bill 2016. CGT rates for 2016/17 have been reduced from18% to 10% for basic rate tax payers, while for higher rate tax payers the rate on gains over the unused part of their basic rate tax band will be charged at 20%(previously 28%).

A number of changes relating to entrepreneurs’ relief are also set to be introduced, including:
  • Associated disposals – relief will be due (subject to conditions) on privately-held assets when the accompanying disposal of business assets is to a family member
  • Disposals of goodwill – relief will be due (subject to conditions) when a business is transferred to a company controlled by 5 or fewer people or directors
  • Extension to long-term external investors – this applies the 10% CGT rate to growing gains on ordinary shares in an unlisted trading company
