What is Capital Gains Tax?
Capital Gains Tax in the Philippines is a form of tax levied on the profit from the sale of non-inventory assets purchased at a cost amount lower than the amount realized upon the sale. In the Philippines, CGT primarily applies to the sale of real property and shares of stocks not traded in the stock exchange. For real estate transactions, the CGT rate is 6% of the gross selling price or the current fair market value, whichever is higher.
