CGT and Foreign Exchange

My client has been benefiting from the USD movements in exchange rate over the past year.

Shares held in an American company were sold in USD and the capital gains tax calculated in 2014/15. The profit from the sale is being received monthly over a 5 year period and because of the exchange rate movement, the monthly payments are going up.

Do we need to declare this gain to the HMRC?

Thank you!
