In instances where a business has been transferred to a company, and shares have been received in return, you could be eligible for a delayed payment of Capital Gains Tax (CGT), known as incorporation relief. The delayed payment of CGT is until such a point where the acquired shares in the company are disposed of in the future. Incorporation relief can be used in circumstances where the business transfer has resulted in only shares being received as well as where they have been subsidized by cash, in which case CGT will need to still be paid on the cash proceeds.
