Key Services
Capital Gains Tax Planning

Our tax advisors will assess your unique circumstances and analyse the CGT implications of transferring assets during separation or divorce. By carefully considering factors such as the nature of the assets, their acquisition costs, and applicable exemptions or reliefs, we will develop a personalised CGT planning strategy. Our goal is to minimise your CGT liabilities while ensuring compliance with HMRC regulations.

Asset Valuation

Determining the market value of assets is critical to calculating the CGT liabilities during divorce-related transfers. Our team will assist you in accurately valuing your assets, considering relevant factors such as market conditions, professional valuations, and HMRC guidelines. Ensuring correct asset valuations will help maximise accuracy in your CGT calculations.

Exemptions and Reliefs

Our tax advisors are knowledgeable in the various exemptions and reliefs available for CGT purposes. We will explore eligibility for exemptions such as the transfer of assets between spouses or civil partners, as well as reliefs such as the Principal Private Residence Relief (PPR). By leveraging these provisions, we aim to minimize your CGT liabilities and optimise your tax position.

We understand the complexity of CGT regulations and the importance of accurate reporting.

Professional, knowledgeable and efficient service. I instructed Spherical Accoutsnts twice at a short notice to prepare a CGT report. I was given clear explanation of the process and time frame. Zia Tahir who handled my instruction prepared the report promptly and answered all my questions and concerns with patience and professionalism. I was very satisfied with the service received and would recommend to use the firm for any accounting and tax related matters.


Professional and experienced, great value for money. Would definitely recommend it.


Excellent service at great prices.
