Gilts and Corporation Tax

Have a limited company client with corporate investments in gilts.  Whilst I am aware of the CT treatment of interest, if the company makes a gain on such a gilt, is it exempt from any tax payable on that gain?

Yes

... provided that the gilt is on HMRC's list of exempt gilts.

No

The Gilts are exempt from corporation tax on chargeable gains.   However, any gain arising on the disposal of a Gilt will be taxable under the Loan Relationship provisions found in Part 5, CTA 2009.
