  • RE: Tax accounting dates for shares disposal

    Thank you. If I understand correctly, you are stating that the 'execution' date is the same as the unconditional contract and/or transaction date? In which case, in my example above, an execution date of the 5th would result in CGT exposure in the 21/22 year I believe?
  • Tax accounting dates for shares disposal

    I seek definitive confirmation that the execution date for share sales is that used for CGT (and indeed potential knock-on personal tax) accounting purpose. Specifically, would shares sold with an execution date of 5th April 2022 and settlement date of 7th be deemed to fall in the 21/22 fiscal year notwithstanding the settlement date being in the 22/23 fiscal year? Thank you.
