Capital gains tax and damages - a reality check nine months after TR95/35


Damages may be subject to income tax or capital gains tax, though, without warranting a gross-up. This will be so if those taxes would be applied to the plaintiff in any event if the wrong had not occured, or the contract had been performed.
