Chancellor accepts some OTS recommendations on Capital Gains Tax
An open letter to the OTS on behalf Rishi Sunak reveals that the Treasury has accepted five recommendations for the improvement of the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) system:
Integrate the various methods of CGT reporting and payment into a Single Customer Account
Extend the reporting and payment deadline for the UK property return to 60 days
Extend the ‘no gain no loss’ window on separation
Expand the specific Rollover Relief rules which apply where land and buildings are acquired under Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPO)
Improve HMRC guidance in certain specific areas.
The Treasury will not be accepting any of the OTS’s recommendations on Inheritance Tax at this moment in time due to the need to seek a wider range of views.
