RSU on self assessment

Didn't find your answer?

I have a client who worked abroad and moved to the the UK, and had their RSUs vested when they moved to the UK. On their UK payslip (last one of the year) it shows their final salary and the total RSU and RSU taxes as income then the total RSU as dedcuted. In reality the difference is the RSU Taxes left. They have not sold any vested RSU since moving to the UK.

I am unsure how to proceed when doing their tax return as I am not very familiar with RSUs outside of when I did US accounting. 

Would someone be able to explain to me how I treat this on the UK tax return...

Do you really 'have a client' or are you looking for tips for your own personal tax return?

RSUs don't receive the tax efficient treatment that other share option schemes do so they are taxed through PAYE when they vest - this means that all the relevant figures will be in your P60 and you just therefore enter those details. The only other entries you'd need to make would be when you sell the vested stock. That means that you (er, I mean your client lol), don't need to worry about any additional entries.
