This section starts by explaining some of the steps HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has taken to find out the requirements of users of Capital Gains Tax statistics. The section then continues with a PDF document, which contains the tables which can be accessed further down the page in Excel format, together with an introduction to Capital Gains Tax and relevant commentary on the tables.
After this links to the tables already mentioned are given. These tables principally provide information on accruals of Capital Gains Tax and the amounts of capital gains on which the tax is paid, by relevant tabulating quantities, for example, tax year, size of income and asset holding length. The last table shows the tax rates and tax thresholds relevant to Capital Gains Tax. Underneath a link is given to the National Archives to access older tables.
Finally there is a link to information on tax receipts, the cost of tax reliefs and ready reckoner estimates (includes, for example, the costs of making changes to reliefs and thresholds) which include some estimates for Capital Gains Tax.
