Capital Gain & Dividend Statement


OmairA

Question

Hi Fellows,

Its tax time here in down under and need the capital gains and dividend statement for filling the tax return. I am struggling to find a way on IG platform to do that.

I would be thankful if anyone could point me in the right direction. I hope it should be something simple.

Cheers.

If you're currently holding / traded less than 10 stocks you could sign up for a free Sharesight account and manually import your statements.  Otherwise you pay for extra for larger trading activity and additional services.  Sharesight is great and makes tax time very easy.  You can have IG forward your trading statements for automatic tracking, then at the EOFY you simply select which reports you would like to generate.  Depending on your situation you may be able to claim the cost of the service on tax.

If you do go down this path you need to email IG and have them add an additional email address that directs your statements to the Sharesight server.

 

Manual trade history -

Trade history can also be downloaded from your IG dashboard, hit the three dots on the far right of you accounts, for ASX trading (Not CFD's) Select history - Show trade history - select the date range - Download as excel format.

Second that. Sharesight is great tool. Relatively inexpensive and you can possibly claim as a tax deduction. If you're into international stocks, it's great (or in my case not so great! 😭) to see the impact on currency swings on the stocks you hold.

I am able to work out capital gains myself pretty easily. But what about dividends for my tax. How do I know how much was franked etc. There is another post that states that there is a dividend statement that is issued by IG once a year, but cannot locate it anywhere. Can someone direct me on how to access this statement?

For share dealing accounts we do provide yearly tax statements. You should be able to find them on the MyIG page by selecting Live accounts> (make sure share dealing is selected) > Statements. 

If you're having issues finding the statement here, or you want a statement for a different account please email us at helpdesk.uk@ig.com. 

All the best

Tried emailing, got response IG :
 

These statements are only generated if you've received dividends last financial year. If you haven't received dividends last financial year, you can access your trade history under Live accounts > History > Trade history and selecting the period. Other commissions transactions and the like can be found under Live accounts > History > Transactions.

If you want a summary of all trades with purchase price, taxes, consideration etc then this can be produced and exported from MyIG / Live Accounts / History / Trade History and you can then select the dates within which the export should be generated.

    • I think we should brace ourselves for the Ethereum ecosystem bull run as the much-hyped Dencun upgrade, initially slated for earlier, is now making its grand entrance in March 2024. Analysts are buzzing with excitement, foreseeing Ethereum (ETH) and its ecosystem projects stepping into the spotlight as the main actors of the next bullish surge. If all goes according to plan, this upgrade could unleash the full potential of the Ethereum ecosystem.   https://consensys.io/ethereum-upgrade   Just a month ago, the Total Value Locked (TVL) in most Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) protocols skyrocketed to all-time highs, with Optimism, Arbitrum, and Metis leading the charge. Following this surge came a wave of gaming projects flocking to the chain, banking on Ethereum to revolutionize gaming experiences and slash those pesky transaction fees.   The ETH price action is sending vibes reminiscent of Bitcoin’s pre-ETF era. As we eagerly await the potential approval of an ETH spot ETF in May, the “Decun” upgrade emerges as another game-changer. Analysts draw parallels between the impact of this upgrade on ETH and the transformative “Fire-Dancer” upgrade on SOL (Solana). In anticipation of these game-changing events, we’re witnessing a flurry of activity, with more L2 and gaming projects sprouting up on the Ethereum chain. OKX is already test-driving a promising L2 chain dubbed X1, while Bitget contemplates building a blockchain to amplify the utility of its Ethereum-based token, BGB. Not to be left behind, Binance has seamlessly integrated Optimism into its smart chain with opBNB.   In just one whirlwind month, a plethora of Ethereum-based projects have burst onto the scene, boasting impressive price actions upon listing—think STRK, MAVIA, NADA, ASTO, and the list goes on.   With ETH soaring above $3k and the charts painting a picture-perfect bull trend (even the likes of OP and ARB notching up multiple all-time highs), it’s time to ask: What are your expectations? Do you believe in the staying power of these new projects, or are they just fleeting sparks in the crypto cosmos? Strap in, folks, because the ride is just getting started!
    • A couple of years back in the crypto space, it was relatively uneasy for beginner traders, with time we have noticed the evolution of well structured frameworks like Copy Trading. Certain platforms have brought forth immensely good copy trading frameworks. Currently, Bitget is heralded as one of the best platforms. Per a PnL publication by the CEX there is a copy trader who made about $7,000 from trading $XRP. This is pretty mind blowing. Quite often, I have advised newbie and inexperienced to leverage on copy trading as means of earning while sharpening their edge. The afore profit amassed by a single trader is a testament to how beneficial copy trading is. With its recent growth, Copy trading seems like a buzzword which is too difficult to participate in, however you can participate in it by simply following an elite trader on Bitget. Once you hop on the homepage of the app you are greeted with its emblem, you just need to follow the prompts. By keenly taking part in this, you could get to rake as much profits as the trader who made a whopping $7,000.    
    • Given the varying volatility levels between assets like shares and natural gas, it seems logical that the amount of historical data considered should differ. Shares typically exhibit less volatility compared to commodities like natural gas. I'm curious to gather opinions on this matter. Specifically, I'm interested in understanding whether you adjust your lookback periods based on the asset class you're trading and, if so, how you determine the appropriate timeframe for each. I'm looking to reach a consensus or at least get a sense of common practices among day traders.
