    If you sold a commercial lease for more than you bought it for, but you did leasehold improvements, would there still be a capital gain?

    A commercial lease is not an asset, it's a liability.

    Potentially. Leases are very complex. It will depend on the length of the lease. It is likely that some will be treated as income and some as a capital gain.
