I am a polish resident, born in the UK. I've lived here for just under 3 years now. I recently sold some shares in the UK which I held in a private company, I made a capital gain on the sale of these shares and am wondering how to treat it. From a UK perspective I know unless I return I won't pay CGT, however I understand I will have to pay it in Poland. Is that the case?
If so am I right in thinking that the CGT rate is a flat 19%?
Yes but there is a separate form - pit 38. Ask an accountant to fill it in and If you are talking about a big amount then make sure you have a few bits of backup evidence for the cost of the shares, sale price of the shares, Forex documentation etc
