Capital Gains Tax
You pay Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on any capital gain you make when you dispose of a chargeable asset such as land, buildings, shares in a company, patents. You pay the tax on the gain and not on the whole amount you receive. The tax is paid by the person making the disposal.
We can help you calculate the capital gains or losses and file the tax return on your behalf. We do capital gains tax returns for:
– Individuals and companies that are resident in Ireland
– Non-resident individuals and companies
Companies must include capital gains in their corporation tax return. However, when a company makes a disposal of a development land, it must pay Capital Gains Tax rather than Corporation Tax.
Reliefs from CGT may also be available. Some reliefs that can be claimed are:
