The new CGT regime came into operation on 1 July 1998. This paper summarises the structure of the new CGT regime, and aims to provide a "road map" to guide practitioners through the new provisions. This is done by reference to a practical four step process : 1 Identify the potentially relevant CGT events, 2 Check whether an exception or general exemption applies, 3 Check whether rollover relief is available, 4 Calculate the capital gain or loss.
