Sale of Car - CGT?

I know that 'private cars' are exempt form cgt.

In this case a company has sold a sports car (owned approx 10 years) at a considerable gain, the car never been used in business activities - expect kept under a sheet in a lock up.

My question is could this be classed as a sale of an investment and would CGT be due on gain?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Yes the car was capitalised

Never featured on a P11d form though  -

not shown as an investment held in the accounts - im informed was used lightly in a pool car capacity

Sale of Car - CGT?

I PRESUME THAT YOU WILL BE SHOWING PROFIT ON DISPOSAL OF ASSETS. WHICH IS DISALLOWED FOR TAX COMPUTATION.

IF YOU HAVE CLAIMED CAPITAL ALLOWANCE THEN BALANCING CHARGE WOULD BE APPLICABLE.

I WOULD NOT INCLUDE THIS AS CAPITAL GAINS.

P11d issue

Definitely not CGT - it's a simple asset disposal

Regarding the P11d benefit though, you said never used for business yet no P11d completed - hmmmm very dubious
