Tax on profit from investment?


Hi! I have a quick question - I was wondering how tax works on returns and/or profits from investment trusts, as I can’t seem to find anything about that. Is it the same as normal income, so tax paid can be easily calculated on sites like, or is it something totally different?

Thanks very much in advance! :slight_smile:


You can find the answer in the beginners guide on this site,. It says : " Investment trusts pay the standard tax on their investment income, but not on capital gains. This is to make sure that shareholders in investment trusts are not taxed twice: once on the underlying investments, and again on the investment trust shares themselves".
