CGT Planning

Did you know that if you choose to sell capital assets, you could be liable to pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT)?

Whether sold or gifted, liquidising capital assets that have increased in value is risky business. To minimise the liability, our expert team will analyse your assets and investments to help you plan effectively. We’ll guide you in how to report and pay any CGT liabilities and can even help reduce or postpone the payments.

We can also…

  • Calculate any potential Capital Gains Tax when you sell an asset
  • Recommend any reliefs available when selling your assets including Entrepreneurs’ Relief.
  • Advise on the timing of disposal of the asset
  • Advise on the sale of shares

If you have disposed of an asset or plan to and would like advice on how to reduce your CGT liability, please get in touch.


I have always found Sapphire to be pro-active rather than reactive in their approach to customer service. They are always really flexible to my changing needs and have helped me massively with complex area’s of international taxation. Nothing is ever too much trouble and I’d gladly recommend my friends, family and colleages to Sapphire.

Lee and the team at Sapphire have been looking after our accounts and tax affairs since our incorporation in 2016. Nothing is too much trouble for the Sapphire team, our calls and emails are answered straight away and they have helped streamline our internal finance systems on Xero, giving us faster access to real time numbers and making it easier for us to make strategic decisions.

What I find most refreshing about Sapphire is the wide range of specialisms, from basic payroll to complex business re-structuring there seems to be always someone on hand to help. We have built up trust with Lee & Mark and the team over the past 7 years and we see Sapphire as our finance business partner, not just an external firm of accountants.

Our experienced accountancy team have been working in the accountancy industry for over 30 years, so you can rest assured you’re in good hands.
