Chargeable Event Gains - help please!

Postby Lee Young » Mon Oct 05, 2015 7:02 pm

If I am using the HMRC facility online to lodge a client's tax return is it possible to include more than one chargeable event gain? For a deceased client I have a number of gains, different number of years for the gains inevitably, but I cant see how I submit each individual figure? Submitting a global figure doesn't work as I cant simply average the number of years.

Can anyone help solve what is a simple problem?

It is possible on any decent commercial package, which are available for a few hundred pounds. I've no idea why a professional practice would ever use HMRC's submission system, which is not known for it's flexibility. I'm sure you have your reasons.

PTP's system advises that this is a HMRC special case, and you need to include a description of each policy, tax treated as paid, number of complete years in the additional information box on the supplementary pages, and let you enter multiple chargeable events.
