The purchaser will have made a net payment of £105,753. The rebate amount of £247 will be taxed under the Accrued Income Scheme. For Capital Gains Tax purposes the acquisition cost becomes £106,000. Indexation allowance is given on £106,000.

NOTE. If a taxpayer is within the charge to Capital Gains Tax, neither indexation allowance nor taper relief apply to disposals of assets on or after 6 April 2008. Previously indexation allowance had been frozen at April 1998. Companies and other concerns within the charge to Corporation Tax are not affected by these changes. For indexation allowance see CG17207+ and for taper relief see CG17895+.
