Carried interest & losses offset

Product Help Banner.png


The concept of Carried Interest was introduced into the 2017 Tax returns by HMRC. It is a share of the profits of an investment paid to the investment manager in excess of the amount that the manager contributes to the partnership, specifically in alternative investments i.e. private equity and hedge funds.
Carried interest is chargeable to Capital Gains Tax and is taxed at 28%. 
CCH Personal Tax allows losses brought forward, in year losses and the Annual CGT exemption to be allocated against carried interest gains.
