Capital Gains Tax

Question for Treasury

UIN 66852, tabled on 30 June 2020

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he plans to undertake a Capital Gains Tax rebasement for assets acquired after 31 March 1982.

The Government does not have plans to rebase assets for the purposes of calculating CGT. Revaluation would be costly and burdensome for both individuals and the government, as a professional valuation of the assets in question would be necessary.
