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.

    • Hello @SillyMilly I think you are referring to purchasing crypto for holding, like people who buy gold or silver as a store of value, while @MongiIG and @ArvinIG are referring to the activity of "trading" since IG is a trading platform, i.e. for those who want to buy and sell assets as a mean to make a profit. In that sense they are right in pointing out that the FCA (the Financial Conduct Authority (UK)) which is the main governing body for the financial sector (I believe) has ruled against the activity of trading cryptocurrencies for non-professionals. I think perhaps due to the very risky nature of trading in crypto, which are prone to extreme volatility. Having said all that, you can purchase crypto through an exchange. I am not sure if there are any legal restrictions in the UK, but I doubt it. I suggest you do a Google search for "Crypto Exchanges UK". Good luck
