Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Bad news I regret, you should have disposed of these holdings whilst you were in Abu Dhabi in the tax year before your date of repatriation. You would then have escaped UK CGT.
Now you will be liable for CGT on the whole gain made less your non-cumulative Annual Exempt Amount (AEA) of 11.3K. This gain less the ASA will be taxed at 20%. What you do with the cash released is entirely your own affair. For a tax-free environment, you might consider ISAs in 87/88 and 88/89 tax years
I am so sorry to have to rain on your parade. .
Ah well. it's no use crying over spilled milk!
