A-Z index

CGT calculations

The indexation method of calculating your capital gain
You can use the indexation method to calculate the capital gain on an asset you acquired before 11.45am on 21 September 1999 and which you owned for 12 months or more.
What are capital proceeds?
Capital proceeds are what you receive, or are entitled to receive, as a result of a CGT event. In some cases, even if you receive nothing in exchange for a CGT asset, you are taken to have received the market value of that asset.
