Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
I have not.
Please note that the options I am looking to sell were granted in 2010 and 2011.
I was resident in the UK 2008-2011 November, then in Brasil Nov 11 to Dec 13, now Singapore.
Since leaving the UK, I have spent circa 20 days p/a in the UK, the majority of the rest in my assignment country.
I have already filled-in the P85 on departure.
However my company treats me as if I never left the UK (they pay all my tax in various countries and I pay them as if I never left) so I have a virtual tax position in the UK - so can you please tell me if the profit from the sale is circa $50,000 (between option price and current price) what actual tax do I pay - is it capital gains @15%? This is the tax I would expect to pay in the UK if I had stayed?
