ANNUAL EXCLUSION

Although capital gains or losses, in respect of most personal-use assets are excluded from the CGT system, a threshold (annual exclusion) is provided to exclude the total of smaller gains and losses from CGT. The purpose of the annual exclusion is to reduce compliance costs, and simplify the administration of the tax by keeping small gains and losses out of the system.
 
The table below sets out the annual exclusion.
