    Hope this helps:

    Alex – Disposals between spouses / civil partners are no gain / no loss transfers. Asset would be deemed to be transferred at cost price of £12,000. No gain on transfer so tax is £0.

    Donna – Transfer is to a connected person so Market Value is substituted for cost
    Deemed proceeds £22000
    Cost £ 7500
    Gain £14500
    Annual Exemption £11100
    Taxable Gain £ 3400

    Rate of tax depends on other income.
    Donna has other income of £30000

    BR band is £1 - £32000 at 10% for capital gains
    HR band is £32001 - £150000 at 20% for capital gains

    Remaining BR band is £32000 less £30000 of other income so £2000 remaining to be taxed at 10% giving tax of £200.
    The remaining gain of £3400 - £2000 = £1400 and is taxed at higher rate of 20% so £280.
    Total tax = £200 + £280 = £480

    Carl
    Proceeds £64800
    Cost £44050
    Gain £20750
    Annual
    Exemption £11100
    TAXABLE GAIN £ 9650

    Carl has used his full BR band with other income of £54600. His entire gain will be taxed at Higher rate of 20%.

    Tax at 20% £ 1930


    Bridget
    Friends are not connected persons so normal gains computation
    Proceeds £26000
    Cost £ 9500
    Gain £16500
    Annual
    Exemption £11100
    TAXABLE GAIN £ 5400
    Bridget has used up £18430 of her BR band so she has £32000 - £18430 = £13570 remaining. This covers her gain so tax is £5400 x 10% BR tax = £540

    Hi Rio, you made a slight error in your figures above so I went back to the question in my book and saw that the allowable loss was 14600 not 12600.

    6120 + 12600 + 16210 = 34930
    Less personal allowance 34930 - 11100 = 23830
    Less allowable loss 23830 - 14600 = 9230
    Precious is a basic rate tax payer so CGT will be at 10%
    9230 x 10% = 923

    Hope that helps
