, my share trading income statement shows

£7,794.84 from sale of Verizon shares

£3,078.82 Vodafone dividend (Dummy C)

£4.48 - Corporate Action: 10538 VODAFONE GROUP ORD USD (DUMMY C)

I need you to clarify that after the change over from Vodaphone to Verizon that you took a pay out subject to income tax (option c) and that you then went on to sell your Verizon shares
Is that correct?
Thanks

Ok, only you will know what you have undertaken with the Verizon buy out
but I can advise the cash pay-out you took is a special dividend with the cash payment being subject to 10% tax, so this is shown on the dividends part of the main online self assessment.
If you then went on to sell the Verizon shares - then as the gain you have made is less than £10,900 there is NO capital gain so you need not declare this return on the sale.
If this is NOT the case then please advise further
Thanks

,

Thank you response.

To clarify then:


£3,078.82 Vodafone dividend (Dummy C)

£4.48 - Corporate Action: 10538 VODAFONE GROUP ORD USD (DUMMY C) - Declare in dividends section?

£7,794.84 from sale of Verizon shares

Shares sold taking income option (C Shares)

Considered as capital gains?

Expert:  Sam replied 2 years ago.

Thanks response
I have no idea what the £4.48 is - you should have suffered 10% tax on the Vodaphone to Verizon pay out on the £3078.82 but it is a dividend and is shown on the main return along with the 10% tax suffered (so you either had £3078.82 paid into the bank with tax suffered on £3420.91 gross or £3078.82 was the gross payout and you actually were paid £2770.94 into your bank)
And the Verizon sale of shares is a capital gain and is below the £10,900 so no need to declare this at all on your self assessment tax return.
Thanks
