Capital Gains Tax is a tax on the profit when you dispose of something (an ‘asset’) that’s increased in value.

It’s the gain you make that’s taxed, not the amount of money you receive.

There are so many parameters to its calculation that as a business or an individual it’s best to seek the assistance of a professional like Certax.

Inheritance Tax is a tax on the estate (the property, money and possessions) of someone who’s died. There again it’s always reassuring to talk to a professional like Certax.
