Claiming Business Asset Disposal Relief
BADR used to be known as Entrepreneurs’ Relief before 6 April 2020. The name change does not affect the operation of the relief. BADR applies to the sale of a business, shares in a trading company or an individual’s interest in a trading partnership. Where this relief is available CGT of 10% is payable in place of the standard rate. There are a number of qualifying conditions that must be met to qualify for the relief.
You can currently claim a total of £1 million in BADR over your lifetime. The £1m lifetime limit means you can qualify for the relief more than once. The lifetime limit may be higher if you sold assets before 11 March 2020.
Claims for BADR are made either through your Self-Assessment tax return or by filling in Section A of the Business Asset Disposal Relief help sheet. The deadline for claiming relief for the 2019-20 tax year is 31 January 2022.
