Capital Losses On Single Payment Entitlements

www.greenandco.comIf you have made a Capital Gain selling assets it is important to check whether you can save tax by using the Capital Losses from purchased Single Payment Scheme entitlements.

In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales all Single Payment Scheme entitlements ceased to exist on 31 December 2014. This means that the cost of purchasing those entitlements is now a Capital Loss which is allowable against other Capital Gains made on the sale of assets.

However in England the Single Payment Scheme entitlements were converted to the new Basic Payment Scheme entitlements so there is no Capital Loss.

It just goes to show – England don’t always win!
