Acquisition Date on CGT Computation

Acquisition Date on CGT Computation

Didn't find your answer?

Q1. The shares disposed on a given day can be matched by a combination of same day selling and bed and breakfast, therefore which acquisition date should be entered? I would guess the latest of all the dates

Q2 . I've read that all disposals of shares of a given class in a given company on one day should be treated as a single disposal. If shares of a given class in a given company were sold on multiple days, is it correct to submit separate computations for the different days' disposals or combine them all in one computation for all shares of a given class in a given company? (I have matched up the costs of acquisition with disposals according to the rules) Thanks for your info in advance

You could apportion the sale proceeds and enter as two sales, each then with the correct date.

Thanks

for each separate disposal you need to attach a comp (fields A-J)? I intend to produce a PDF with each required comp (you don't combine all disposals relating to one stock in to one comp?)

Not sure how relevant this may be but the date of acquisition is not a required field, at least in Taxfiler, so I guess it is not mandatory in the final Return..

Thanks

Is this the only field which is not required from boxes A-J on the computations?
