Capital Gains Tax Allowance allows taxpayers to earn £6000 of tax-free Capital Gains from the sale of assets for the 2023/24 tax year.
The Capital Gains Tax Allowance is an annual allowance provided by the UK government that allows taxpayers to earn a certain amount of tax-free gains on the sale of assets.
For the 2023/2024 tax year, the allowance is £6000. This is down from the £12,300 allowance in the previous tax year.
