Hi, I was away for 20 years. But now back in the UK and the shoes haven't been sold yet - so they will be sold in the Uk also
Then you will be liable to any rise in value in GBP from the date you owned the shares, I suspect this is what the accountant thought. UK CGT has a max rate of 20% for high rate taxpayers after any allowance. Had they been sold the day before you returned to the UK, no tax would have been payable.
