From 6 April 2020, HMRC require tax on capital gains on disposals of UK residential property to be reported and paid within 30 days. This means paying tax up to 21 months earlier than under the previous rules, which is likely to catch many people unawares.
What happens if you withdraw valuable euros now? Back on 5 April 2012 the law said that you had to pay capital gains tax on the foreign exchange gains in bank accounts. Thankfully, the following day new rules came in which exempted gains (and losses) on bank accounts holding foreign currency.
HMRC have the power to enquire into such Returns and accordingly an apparently successful claim may be challenged and fail once it has come under proper scrutiny. This might be an issue if you have already paid out on no win fee basis.
