Capital gains tax FAQs

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a tax levied on the profit made from the sale or disposal of certain assets, such as property, investments, or business assets. It applies when you sell or transfer an asset for more than you paid for it.

CGT can apply to a wide range of assets, including but not limited to real estate, stocks and shares, precious metals, business assets, and personal possessions valued at €2,000 or more.

Yes, there are various exemptions and reliefs available that can help reduce CGT liabilities. These may include principal private residence relief, retirement relief, entrepreneur relief, and others. Our CGT specialists can advise you on the eligibility criteria and how to make the most of these reliefs.

CGT is calculated by subtracting the purchase price (or original value) of the asset from the sale price, then deducting any allowable expenses and reliefs. The resulting profit is subject to tax at the prevailing CGT rate.
