Register for Capital Gain Tax


New Member
Hello everyone,

I have a doubt in regard on how to actual pay and file for CGT. I know how to calculate how much I owe, however I'm confused on how exactly do it.

My situation is quite simple: I am a full time PAYE employee, and occasionally I trade few stocks. I know I have to pay CGT before the October deadline, and then file the same capital gain the following year. But how to do so? I am registered on Revenue "MyAccount", however I do not see any option for doing so.

As far as I understood, I have to register for CGT first, and then I'll be able to file/pay it. But how to do it?

Email swregistrations at with your name and ppsn and say you want to register for CGT. Might also be able to do it via the MyEquiries.
