Capital gains tax advice for UK citizen living in Germany : eupersonalfinance


I am a UK citizen working in Germany since September last year. My citizenship is in the UK and I lived with my parents until last September when I graduated.

I have recently made significant (for me) capital gains and am looking into how it will be taxed. In the UK the first £12,300 of capital gains is tax-free. However, in Germany this limit is only 800Euro.

According to the HMRC, I am still classified as UK resident: https://www.gov.uk/tax-foreign-income/residence

Does this mean I can pay my captial gains tax (taking advantage of the allowance) to the UK instead of Germany?
