Capital Acquisitions Tax (CAT)
It is not uncommon for people to pay larger amounts of CAT than necessary. Expert advice can often mean that these bills are reduced. It is vital that in order to avail of any available reliefs or exemptions, professional advice is sought in advance i.e. prior to gifting assets or at the time of writing a will.
Capital Gains Tax (CGT)
If you decide to sell or gift anything of value you could be liable to CGT. You are obliged to inform the Revenue Commissioners of your disposal and failure to do so could give rise to penalties. There are various reliefs and exemptions available and expert advice should be sought before selling or gifting any asset.
