I would like to ask if i selling option(short side) and get premium, and close position after 6-9 months and there is a profit. What is the type of tax in this case? Income tax or capital gain tax? Thank you.

Hi,

Any profit would be a capital gain.

You can find further guidance here:

Shares and Capital Gains Tax (Self Assessment helpsheet HS284)

Thank you.
