Investors take on tax return deadline with timetotrade

Press Release   •   Jan 11, 2010 12:50 GMT

Timetotrade’s Capital Gains Tax calculator helps investors calculate their Capital Gains on Shares, Unit Trusts and OEIC transactions, in advance of January 31st 2010 Tax Return Deadline.

Timetotrade’s Capital Gains Tax Calculator helps UK investors work through Capital Gains Tax calculations on Shares, Unit Trusts, and OEIC transactions. Traditionally such tools were only available to professionals but can now be accessed by private investors and investment clubs at from any web based browser www.timetotrade.eu

Calculating Gains can be a minefield, but fortunately help is at hand. With timetotrade’s Capital Gains Tax Calculator investors simply input all historical shares of funds transactions and timetotrade works out the rest. Including complex calculations for: Section 104 Holdings, equalisation payments, notional distributions, share reorganisations (such as mergers, rights issues and takeovers) and share identification rules.  The tool can also be used to calculate indexation allowance and taper relief that were applicable prior to the changes to CGT legislation in April 2008.

Investors can then print off or save their fully completed Capital Gains Tax return form SA108 (or Form 185(new) for investment clubs) ready to submit, along with the supporting calculations now required by the HMRC.

timetotrade provides investors with a collective view of their tax position, and enables investment disposal scenarios to be modelled in order to maximise tax breaks and work within yearly tax allowances.

Dary McGovern, Managing Director of Sensatus, the developers behind timetotrade, commented "We have worked closely with private investors during the development of timetotrade. In doing so, it quickly became apparent that a solution was needed that would help investors quickly determine their tax liabilities. Using timetotrade, investors can now do this."

Investors looking to submit an online Capital Gains Tax return to HMRC must do so by 31st January 2010 , if any of the following circumstances were met during the tax year ending 5th April 20098:

  • If overall gains exceed the Annual Exempt Amount (£9,600 Yr 2008-2009);
  • If total Gains, before deducting losses were higher than the Annual Exempt Amount (£9,600 Yr 2008-2009);
  • If you disposed of more than £38,4000 of assets (2008-2009);
  • If you made an overall Capital Loss for the year and wish to make a claim so that it can be carried forward to offset against future gains.

The Capital Gains Tax Calculator can be found at www.timetotrade.eu
