Hi tanyamarie
I am studying personal tax for 2012/13, but i will try and answer this one.
I would have put
2000 8000
100 0
2100 8000
800 4800 (matching rules)
2900 12800
proceeds 1200x10=12000
less 1200x6=7200
Gain 48000 
Thanks. I see where I have gone wrong at the beginning. Where you have put 4800. Would this not be 8000x 800 divided by 2100 = 3048 ? Sorry if I have confused things.0

no you simply have bought 800 more than you have sold at £6 which =48000
