• What is the reduced cost base?

    End of attention

    When a CGT event happens to a CGT asset and you haven't made a capital gain, you need the asset's reduced cost base to work out whether you have made a capital loss. (Remember, a capital loss can only be used to reduce a capital gain - it cannot be used to reduce other income.)
