'Capital gain' is the term used in accounting to describe any profits earned from the sale or disposal of any asset or assets.

Capital Gains Tax is therefore the tax, or contribution of money, levied by the government from any capital gains, including profits from the sale of land, valuable possessions or investments such as stocks and shares.

If your business is carried out through a limited company or organisation, you will not be required to pay Capital Gains Tax because you already pay Corporation Tax. Capital Gains Tax is simply included in the Company Tax Return under 'chargeable gains'.
