HMRC provide help with the completion of the Capital Gains pages self-assessment-capital-gains-summary-sa108

How to complete the SA108 Capital Gain pages in respect of Non-Resident Capital Gains Tax  

  1. Complete the Non-resident Chargeable Gains Tax (NRCGT) on UK property section on the Gains Summary tab.

Do not make any entries in the:

  • Residential property (and carried interest) section at the top of the Gains Summary tab
  • Real Time Transaction Tax Return tab, in particular the UK Residential Properties – UK Property Disposals Tax Returns submitted during [year] section.
  • Disposal tab. There is no requirement to create an individual disposal record for disposal subject to non-resident capital gains tax.

Business Asset Disposal Relief claims more than £1,000,000

Taxfiler does not automatically split a single disposal where the gain is more than £1,000,000 where Business Asset Disposal Relief is being claimed.

Create two disposal records:

  • one up to the maximum Business Asset Disposal Relief possible. This will ensure that this part is taxable at 10%.
  • Another record for the remaining gain.  

Gains summary:

This tab will display the summarised Capital Gains information that will appear on the Tax Return. If you have entered disposals Taxfiler will summarise the disposals and stop the summary fields from being edited, you can manually amend them by ticking the box Allow manual override of figures calculated from disposals?

If you have not entered any disposals in the disposals tab then all the summary fields will be editable.
