Capital Gains Tax

What is it?

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a tax on profit made from the sale of certain capital assets purchased on or after 20 September 1985.

Some assets are generally exempt from this tax, including the family home, car and personal use assets.

A capital gain or capital loss is calculated by subtracting the cost of the asset from the sale price of that asset. The gain is taxed in the hands of the seller at their marginal rates.

If you make a loss that is not used to reduce another capital gain, that loss is carried forward and can be offset against capital gains you make in the future.

Why use us?

There are many CGT concessions that could apply to reduce the amount of taxable capital gains. Having an accountant that knows how to utilise these concessions is very important.

We have accountants that specialise in CGT. They can provide relevant and timely advice to ensure you are in the best possible position from an asset protection and taxation perspective.

Keep in mind that it’s always a good idea to speak with your accountant before you make an asset purchase, so you can ensure you have structured your affairs in the most tax effective way available.
