Understanding CGT on share disposals

Hi All

I'm struggling to understand why and how you calculate the CGT on share disposals for same and 30 day acquisitions (am fine with share pool calculationss).

Is it right that technically with these rules you are affectively disposing of shares before you have actually bought them?

And how do you calculate the cost of the shares sold?

This has got me stumped. I've picked up everything else so far with relative ease but just cannot get my head around this. If anyone has any clear explanations or can find a good link to one, I'd be very grateful.

Tavery much.
