Most gains over the personal allowance of £11,300 are eligible for the full rate of Capital Gains Tax (CGT). Due to this, many people seek to safeguard their investments by making CGT efficient investments. These are normally held in a self-invested personal pension (SIPP) or an individual savings account (ISA), both of which are very tax-efficient ways of investing money in terms of CGT. However, there are also some additional ways to safeguard investment and pay as efficient an amount of CGT as possible. This can come in the form of trusts and schemes and investment in certain assets that have additional exemptions.
