Jointly Appointed Expert Reports

In the unfortunate event of a divorce it is often necessary to consider the tax implications which will apply when the couple’s assets are either sold or divided between them.

A key factor in this will be the capital gains tax consequences. There may particular reliefs which can apply and need to be considered in detail.

The position can be further complicated if there are overseas assets as local capital gains tax will have to be considered as well as any charge in the UK.
