Real Estate

Capital gains tax may be applicable when selling investment properties or any real estate, including your primary residence if certain conditions are not met

Shares & Other Securities

GT can be triggered when selling shares, bonds, options, or any other type of securities that have increased in value since their purchase.


Profit from the sale of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum is subject to capital gains tax, as these digital assets are treated as property for tax purposes.

Collectible Items

CGT may apply to the sale of collectible items such as artwork, coins, jewellery, antiques, and other valuable possessions.
