Capital Gains Tax


This book, part of our new series of general tax annuals, will be published in August. You may buy it now from this page or email your order details to orders@claritaxbooks.com, in which case we will invoice you when the book is sent out.

This major new title aims to be both the clearest and best single-volume guide to CGT in the UK. Written for accountants and tax specialists, the text is arranged across five major sections, with around 20 chapters.

With expert commentary from specialist authors, the book covers all the basics, but also does much more. It addresses the difficult areas practitioners come across in their day-to-day work, including (for example) main residence relief, business asset disposal relief, partnerships, deceased estates, and much more. 

The book follows the same approach to clarity and ease of use that is already familiar to practitioners using our more specialist titles. The logical table of contents, as well as the comprehensive indexing, makes it easy for readers to find what they are after.
