Rate of CGT
If you are an individual, you have a personal exemption of €1,270 each year. If your chargeable gain is less than this, you will not have to pay any CGT.
The rate of CGT is 33% for most gains. There are other rates for specific types of gains. These rates are:
40% for gains from foreign life policies and foreign investment products
15% for gains from venture capital funds for individuals and partnerships
12.5% for gains from venture capital funds for companies.
Venture capital is money that is invested in a start-up company or small business.

15 December – Each year for assets sold/disposed during the preceding 1 January to 30 November (Initial Period).
