Capital Gains Tax

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) can be a significant cost to landlords, but the many reliefs and exemptions available, as well as the tax's numerous quirks, mean that planning ahead can save you many thousands of pounds.

Delivered by best-selling author of 'How to Save Property Tax' and practicing chartered accountant Carl Bayley, the course gives a detailed understanding about how CGT works and offers practical advice on what landlords can do to reduce their eventual tax bill.

Numerous worked examples are used to illustrate the main reliefs and allowances, as well as the basics of how to calculate the tax and when and how it has to be paid.
