printer Mail

The Taxation of Chargeable Gains (Gilt-edged Securities) Order, SI 2021/629 provides that ten specified securities are ‘gilt-edged securities’ and therefore gains on their disposal are not chargeable gains for CGT (or corporation tax on chargeable gains) purposes.

TCGA 1992 s 115 provides that gains on the disposal of ‘gilt-edged securities’ are not chargeable gains. TCGA 1992 Sch 9 para 1 defines ‘gilt-edged securities’, and this definition incorporates certain securities that are specified by order made by the Treasury. The ten securities specified in the Order are so designated under that power.
