Last updated: 21 Mar, 2019

Unfortunately, TaxCalc cannot deal with transactions where you have purchased shares at different prices at different times (including the 30 days, bed and breakfast etc.) also known as Section 104 holding. When entering the information relating to Capital Gains Tax, there are 2 approaches you can opt to take which are listed below. If you need further information on the Section 104 Holding and how to deal with these transactions then please see the HMRC web page​ HS284 Shares and Capital Gains Tax.

  7. Enter the Disposal date as the last date of the year (05/04)
  8. Enter the Disposal proceeds to generate your loss total.

  11. Complete steps 3-8 to generate your gain total.
