    End of attention

    If you acquired your rights or options on or after 20 September 1985, they are treated much like any other CGT asset and are subject to CGT.

    Flowcharts 3 and 4 in appendix 3 summarise the different rules applying to the treatment of rights or options to acquire shares or units.
