Welcome to CGTCalculator - keep track of your capital gain

Anyone who has tried working through the Inland Revenue matching rules for share trades will know that the process can quickly become very complicated for even a modest number of trades. The 30 day rule especially can cause unexpected gains/losses. The purpose of this site is to help UK tax payers to calculate, and to keep track of, their capital gain (or loss) based on their share trades. This is important for effective tax planning and can potentially save you a significant amount on your tax bill.

To use the capital gains calculator simply store your trades in a spreadsheet, or a simple text editor like Notepad, in a simple format. If you use an online stockbroker then check the conversion utilities for a suitable converter. Also note that transfers to spouse are supported. See the FAQ for frequently asked questions.

This calculator is updated every year and is fully up to date for all tax years up to 2023-2024.
