Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Do you remember how much you paid?
Sure. Do you know what the value is now if you sell?
Ok. Then in short your gain would be whatever you have paid less than you have sold them for.
For example if you bought for £900 in total and its now worth £2000 then your gain is £1100.
You are permitted a tax free allowance of £11,100 tax free. Anything over this would be subject to tax.
So you need to work out what you have paid for the shares and what you have sold them for. Difference is the gain.
Can I clarify anything?Alex
Thanks. You just work out what you put in vs what you get out, that is it, nothing else.
That turns out to be your gain. Remember if shares are jointly held you get double the allowance.
But even if its sold at £9746.61 there won't be any CGT
Can I clarify anything else?Alex
