I'm trying to figure out if the cash payment I received following the following RNS should be taxed as a capital gain or as income.
The wording states it's a return of capital, so I assume it's CGT. Can anyone help in providing complete clarity on this ?
Since the company is listed London I don't quite know why they do not offer more firm guidance.
I need to figure it out before the end of the current tax year, so utilization of the CGT allowance can be maximized.    Google has not provided the answer.
