  • RE: Foreign income for

    Dear Admin, You've written: "[...] enter the details of each disposal on CGN11 and CGN12." Question : On pages CGN 11 and CGN 12 there is a request to enter the date of purchase of assets (in my case, shares) in boxes (Date of acquisition DD MM YYYY). What should I do (put in boxes) if I have sold an asset that was purchased on different days and I have not sold all the shares of the same type, but only some of them? Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Dear Admin, You've written: "You will need a separate computation (or working sheet for simple calculations) for each asset or type of asset you sold or disposed of." If I do not need to fill in my calculations on pages CGN 11 and CGN 12, can I present them in a separate note as follows? For example: 1. SELL: 3000 ATENDE on 17/11/2021 at £ 0.86168 gives GAIN of £ 719.76 Matches with: BUY: SECTION 104 HOLDING. 3000 ATENDE shares of 3000 bought at average price of £ 0.61854 CALCULATION: Gain = £ 719.76 = (3000 * 0.86168 - 9.67) - (3000 * 0.61854) 2.SELL: 271 ONDE on 27/12/2021 at £ 3.0326 gives LOSS of £ 56.90 Matches with: BUY: 13/01/2022, 271 ONDE shares of 353 bought at £ 3.2182 CALCULATION: Loss = £ 56.90 = (271 * 3.0326 - 3.20) - (353 * 3.2182 + 4.43) * (271/353) 3.SELL: 1400 DEVELIA on 23/12/2021 at £ 0.38753 gives LOSS of £ 5.92 SAME DAY TRADE matches with: BUY: 1400 shares of 1400 at price £ 0.38873 CALCULATION: LOSS = £ 5.92 = (1400 * 0.38753 - 2.11582) - (1400 * 0.38873 + 2.12182) Do I understand correctly that I should include this note in my Foreign Capital Gains Self-Assessment Tax Return report? Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Dear Admin, Do I also need to include my gain and loss calculations on the Capital Gains Tax summary (SA 108) form by completing pages CGN 11 and CGN 12 (included in the Capital Gains Tax summary notes) for each share sale? Thank you in advance for your answer.
  • RE: Foreign income for

    I have a question regarding the "Capital Gains Tax summary" form (SA 108, 2021 year), page CG 2 (Listed shares and securities). In box 25 I have to enter "Allowable costs (including purchase price)". Does this amount, apart from the share purchase price and the share purchase commission, also include the share sale commission, which is also my expense?

    Dear Admin, I have a question regarding the rounding rules for reporting foreign dividends and foreign capital gains from the sale of shares on the stock exchange at the pound rate on the transaction date. 1.How should I round the dividend amounts on form SA106, page F2, if the dividend amount is: a) £ 5,532.896 b) £ 5,532.427 2. When calculating the profits and losses on the sale of shares of the same company and of the same type in a given tax year, I obtain the following results, for example: GAINS: 1) £ 203.4332 2) £ 5,322.521 LOSSES: 1) £ 203.4332 2) £ 5,322.521 Do I round off at this stage, and if so, according to what rules? If possible give me an example on the numbers above. However, if I round the numbers only after summing up the profits and losses separately to enter them in the form SA108 on page CG2 and CG3, how do I round the obtained numbers? I am giving examples for individual boxes from these pages: BOXES (SA108 CG2 - Listed shares and securities): 24 Disposal proceeds - How should I round £ 2,265.444 or round when it is £ 2,265.522 ? 25 Allowable costs (including purchase price) - How should I round £ 2,265.444 and how should I round £ 2,265.522 ? 26 Gains in the year, before losses - how should I round £ 2,265.444 and how should I round when it is £ 2,265.522 ? 27 Losses in the year - How should I round £ 2,265.444 and how should I round when it is £ 2,265.522 ? 29 Total gains or losses on the disposal of an asset of this type reported on Real Time Transaction returns - How should I round £ 2,265.444 and how should I round £ 2,265.522 ? (SA108 CG3 Losses and adjustments) - BOXES 45-48 and 51 - How should I round £ 2,265.444 and how do I round when it is £ 2,265.522 ? Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Dear Admin, The HMRC website says: "You do not have to report losses straight away - YOU CAN CLAIM UP TO 4 YEARS after the end of the tax year that you disposed of the asset." You wrote in the previous post: "THE 4 YEAR TIME IS ONLY FOR REPORTING THE LOSS, not for using it." Personally, I understand the above sentence from the HMRC website so that I have losses to use within 4 years, but what I understand from your statement is that I have 4 years to report losses for which there is no time limit for their subsequent use. Could you dispel my dilemma, because these statements are completely different in my understanding? Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Dear Admin, The HMRC website says: "Reporting losses Claim for your loss by including it on your tax return. [...] You do not have to report losses straight away - you can claim up to 4 years after the end of the tax year that you disposed of the asset. " If, for example, I had a loss in the tax year 2021-2022 and I did not have a profit this year that could be reduced by this loss, should I report it in my Self Assessment for this tax year so that I can deduct it later from possible profit in the next 4 years, if such profits will be? Thank you in advance for your answer.
  • RE: Foreign income for

    Dear Admin, I asked you: "Will I be able to claim for foreign tax credit relief even if the tax paid relates to a slightly different period due to the difference in counting the months in the tax year of these two countries? (Poland - the tax year is the calendar year), UK - the tax year is counted from April of the previous year to April of the next year) " You replied: "You would take the amount of tax paid in e.g 2020 and apportion this to 9/12 of the amount for 20/21 year and 4/12 for 19/20 year." My question, to understand clearly your answer is now: But if I report to the HMRC my income (capital gains) for 2020/21 and I want to claim FTCR, I only know the tax I paid in Poland for the calendar year 2020. I can claim 9/12 of this tax for this year. The problem is only with 3/12 of the tax for the calendar year 2021, because I will know about the tax amount for 2021 only in mid-February 2022. Then I will receive a document in Poland about the amount of income earned and therefore the tax to be paid for 2021. However, the tax report and therefore my wish to claim the FTCR to HMRC should be submitted by the end of January 2022. Do you have any practical solution to this problem? Thank you in advance for your answer.

(Poland - the tax year is the calendar year) , UK - the tax year is counted from April of the previous year to April of the next year) " You replied: "You would need to apportion the tax paid in Poland to coincide with the tax year for the UK." And later you explained: "You would take the amount of tax paid in e.g 2020 and apportion this to 9/12 of the amount for 20/21 year and 4/12 for 19/20 year." My question, to understand clearly your answer is now: I understand that 9/12 (from April to December) of the tax paid in Poland for 2020 (tax year in Poland = calendar year) should be related to the tax year 20/21 in the UK, but I do not understand why 4/12 AND NOT 3/12 (from January to March) of this tax I should refer to the 19/20 tax year in the UK. After all, a year is twelve, not thirteen months. Is it your mistake or did you write it on purpose? And if you wrote it deliberately, please explain it to me, because I don't understand why 4/12 and not 3/12. Thank you in advance for your answer.
