Hi guys, I have a Dutch client. He moved here and bought a home in 2012. He had foreign (FTSE and S&P) shares which he has just sold for a small profit. My understanding is that he would not be subject to CGT as he has not been considered "resident" via both Ordinarily Resident and Physical Residence yet. Can you clarify pls??
