Hi. First time poster here looking for advice concerning CGT payments. I worked for a company for many years and built up a reasonably substantial shareholding over that time through various sharesave schemes and staff offers. In 2013 just before the company got into financial distress I managed to sell approximately one third of my holding which resulted in a substantial capital gain on the average price that I paid for them over the years. However it soon became apparent that the companies troubles were a lot more severe than the management had admitted and it was soon apparent that the remaining shares that I had would probably be completely wiped out. Unfortuantely as these were shares in a private company they were not traded shares and were only saleable back to the company , who had no cash to buy them back. Instead of declaring bankruptcy at that time they ended up in a virtual bank administration from late 2013 until now and the shares were suspended with no value declared - they said it was impossible to value them given the financial mess that the company was in. So I had a substantial CGT for the 2013 tax year but no 'neglible value' declaration on the rest of my shareholding on which to offset the gain. I thought long and hard about not declaring the CGT to HMRC but was advised by our in house tax adviser at the time that I should declare the CGT gain and ended up paying quite a large tax bill on them in early 2014. The company remained in distress through 2014 and 2015 and finally have announced to the shareholders that they can consider the shares to have 'negligible value'. So I have a large capital loss in this tax year but without any corresponding gains to put it against , having already paid a CGT on the same shares last year. My question is can I reclaim the tax I paid , can anyone offer me any advice on this ?
