Taper relief on sale of goodwill?

Is taper relief available on the chargeable gain due to the sale of goodwill when a business is sold? Am questioning this because how long has the asset beeen 'owned', since the start of the business?

    I would not have thought so?? Which unit are you doing as i have never came across this in my PTC revision? Do we need to know it??

    Hi Moseley, it would be in BTC not PTC. Sorry didn't mean to scare you, it didn't come up, that I remember when I did BTC, just something that's come up now with a client. Should have posted in MIP section, forgot which section I was in!

    Hi Jilbo,

    Yes there would, but remember limited companies dont get taper relief!
