Thanks for your question
Can you provide more information please
1) A year 10 what? P
2) How much did you invest - how much will pay out
3) Did you make regular contributions or was this a one off lump sum investment
4) Did it pay out anything during the period of investment
Thanks for your response
I need more information as some bonds fall into being chargeable under capital gains, whilst others income tax - I fear this is a capital gains bond
So can you advsie who you invested this with and the specific name of the bond
Thanks for the further information
Assuming you have not made any withdrawals then you will be liable to capital gains tax on this payout - and due to the size of it then some of it will be charged at 28% (technically £30,000 at 18% and the additional profit at 28%
But as you have been a basic rate taxpayer for the last 7 years then you will be eligible to claim some of this back due to top slicing that recognises that in your case at least 7/10ths of the payout in excess of the 18% charge could in fact just remin chargeable to 18%
So the company will only charge you at 18% and you have to declare this to HMRC for an additional tax to be established which takes your top slicing claim into account.
This top slicing you will need to claim from HMRC on the self assessment tax return (so after 05/04/2017 if the payout is between now and 05/04/2017)
