Detail of outcome
The response document summarises the responses received to the consultation and the next steps.
Extra Statutory Concession (ESC) D33 covers a number of circumstances where a capital sum is received from a right of action.
The concession was amended in January 2014 so that only the first £500,000 of a capital sum where there is no underlying asset was exempt, and exemption for amounts in excess of this had to be made in writing to HMRC.
This consultation seeks views on introducing a limit of £1,000,000 exemption with amounts in excess of this liable to Capital Gains Tax (CGT).
It also seeks views on legislating the relief given by ESC D33 for personal compensation or damages and indemnities.
