IFS - Low rates of capital gains tax on business income lead to large tax savings but do not boost investment
Think Tanks
Tuesday 22 October 2019 @ 10:35

People who work for their own businesses are taxed at lower rates than employees. One of the most prominent examples of this is Entrepreneurs’ Relief – a reduced, 10%, rate of capital gains tax available to, effectively, all business owners. This is part of a broader regime that taxes most self-employment income, dividends and capital gains at lower rates than wage income and that is commonly defended as a means to promote investment and entrepreneurship.
