There are two ways in which to file a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) report; through a self-assessment return completed on an annual basis or by using a service the reports CGT in real time. For a self-assessment report, the capital losses and gains need to be documented, along with asset proceeds and additional information in the case of exemptions or reliefs.
The real time service is very different, and there is no requirement to only use it once the tax year has finished. Here, a copy of your gains is uploaded along with a proof of calculation for the HMRC to evaluate. While the service can make the process quicker, it comes with a number of additional conditions that must be adhered to.
