CGT Allowable Expenses

    Quick one, from Revenue's site:

    What are ‘allowable expenses’?

    They are costs that you can deduct from the sale price to work out your chargeable gain. These can be:
    • any money spent by you which adds value to the asset (known as ‘enhancement expenditure’)
    • costs (for example, fees paid by you to a solicitor or auctioneer) when you acquired and disposed of the asset.

    Although not explicitly stated above, are broker fees/exchange charges allowable expenses?

    Are they fees incurred on that specific stock? (buy and sell transactions over multiple years)
