Effective rates of CGT in 2008/2009 after new Entrepreneurs relief has been claimed


This table illustrates the CGT payable and the effective rate of CGT you would be paying to illustrate the tax savings available from claiming this relief.

Bear in mind that if no Entrepreneurs relief is claimed any gain would be taxed at an effective 18%.

Any gain less than £1,000,000 would be taxed at the effective 10% rate.

"I joined the site after reading an offshore tax guide and was certainly not disappointed. The practical and 'to the point' tax planning has already saved me a considerable sum. I'd recommend this website to anyone."
Jerry Brown, Edinburgh

"From my experience, the advice offered by the team at WPR is second to none and compliments what is normally provided by a high street accountant and offers members quality analysis and advice on complicated tax situations both on and offshore.

I regularly receive a blank look and "I don't know about that" with regard to more imaginative questions and a visit to this site helps me move on. thank you."
Peter Jones, Germany

"I've saved £5,659 in CGT by using this site to double check my accountants advice. My wife has also identified further income tax savings of over £2,000 as result of the property tax articles. In our case it's well worth the £10 membership fee."
Derek Bailey, Birmingham

I must thank you for the most informative reply to my enquiry. It is so extensive, I intend setting an evening aside to absorb it all.

Again, thank you for a most useful website.

"Well written reports that are clear and insightful. I look forward to reading them every week!
Natasha Foude, France

"I have to say your web site is by far the best prepared and most informative that I have seen."

"I'm planning my emigration and the offshore reports are exactly what I'm looking for. I'll definitely be renewing!"
Sarah Mather, Reigate, Surrey.

"The property tax advice service was excellent, and I'd have no problems recommending it to anyone. I received my answer within 1 day and was very pleased with the response
