FAQs About Business Asset Disposal

How much is the asset disposal relief?

Should your business assets qualify for BADR, you will only pay Capital Gains Tax at a rate of 10% on all gains on said qualifying assets. This is a significant reduction of tax and will help you mitigate against the typical higher rates of CGT, and allow you to retain substantially more from the sale proceeds. If you believe you may be eligible for BADR, you should contact us before making any decisions to dispose of your assets, a process we can then guide you through to mitigate your tax liability as much as possible.

It is important to note that qualifying capital gains for each individual are subject to a lifetime limit, and gains on any disposals after 11th March 2020 are limited to £1,000,000.

What business assets qualify for BADR?

A business asset is any aspect of the business that is used for the purposes of the business's trade. BADR can relate to your shares in the business, or real property that belonged to the business. BADR may still apply to assets even after the business ceases to trade, albeit the assets must be sold within three years after the business has ceased trading. If you are unsure whether an asset that your business controls is eligible for BADR, speak to our team for advice today.
