Thank you for your prompt response. You must send a tax return if you made profits from selling things like shares, a second home or other chargeable assets and need to pay capital gains tax.More information on who must send a tax return can be found herehttps://www.gov.uk/self-assessment-tax-returns/who-must-send-a-tax-returnIf you have not filed a tax return in the past and don't have a Unique tax reference number (10 digit number) then you should register for self assessment to enable you to file a tax return. You are unlikely to get a UTR number in time to meet the deadline for filing tax return 2015.A practical solution is to write to HMRC explaining the fact you don't normally file a tax return but have a gain from sale of chargeable assets to report and pay CGT on that gain.They may decide that this being a one off, you need not register for self assessment.You send your letter to HMRC at address shown hereSelf AssessmentHM revenue and CustomsBX9 1ASUKRetain a copy for your records and post the letter recorded delivery. I hope this is helpful and answers your question. If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
