Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Both these transactions would attract Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on the gains made on disposal. This would be levied at 10% or 20% or a combination of the two rates depending on your income including the gain in the tax year of disposal. However, if you are going out of the business altogether, then Entrepreneurs' Relief (ER) will limit your tax burden to a 10% flat rate. You have a lifetime allowance of ER of GBP 10m.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
The company pays Corporation Tax (CT) on any surplus made in each accounting year, current rate is 19%. The gains or losses you personally make on the sale of these businesses have nothing to do with CT.
Thank you for your support.
