Gilts: they are a type of investment issued by the UK Government. They are in sterling. They are usually either Premium Bonds or investments that pay a fixed rate of interest and have a date when they end or mature. Gilts are sometimes called gilt-edged securities or UK government gilts. Gains on the disposal of gilt-edged securities are exempt from Capital Gains Tax. Any loss on the disposal would not be an allowable loss.
