1.Section 34 sets the capital gains tax annual exempt amount (AEA) at its current level of £10,600 for 2012-13 and requires that it rises in line with the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) instead of the Retail Prices Index (RPI) from 2013-14 onwards. Automatic indexation of the AEA using the CPI remains subject to override if Parliament determines a different amount should apply.
