Forgive my ignorance but I'm just wondering how to approach this. I'm currently living on the other side of the world and a little out of touch with the irish financial system.
I have some shares held through td waterhouse.ie. Like many I'm sitting on a bit of a loss with some of them and dont see them improving any time soon. I havent sold shares before so when you sell a share at a loss is it possible to offset your loss one one share against profit on another?
I have some exposure to gold through bullionvault. Does anyone know what the situation with capital gains on this were I to cash some in? Presumably I pay UK rates?
Also I remember a few yrs back that the first 1750 euro or something like that in capital gains each year was tax free. Is that still the case?
Appreciate any help!
