  • Shares sold and paid via payroll

    Hi, I've been trying to research how I fill the Self Assessment form for the following scenario. I received some shares as an award a few years back, those shares vested and I sold them before the end of the 22/23 tax year. I was paid for the sale of the shares through payroll (i.e. it was added to my paycheck). The tax for these shares was withheld automatically when they vested (i.e. before I sold the remainder of the shares). I cannot figure out how to fill the self assessment form to reflect this and as a result it is calculating that I owe tax which I don't believe I do (as the tax on the shares was withheld already and my pay is taxed at source). Advice would be gratefully received
