No annual statement, no record of profit/loss per trade - how to determine tax liability?


Mysno

Question

Hi,

I've browsed some of the community Q&A and it seems a bit inconsistent as to who gets what statements in their account.
I've been trading with IG since 2018, but:
1. In 'Annual' statements - nothing is provided
2. In 'Monthly' statements, 3 random months are provided (2 in 2020 and 1 in 2019)
3. In 'history' of transactions, it shows the sale price but doesn't seem to show the profit/loss from the trade

Is this information available somewhere? Otherwise how is one to determine profit over the course of a particular period in order to file a tax return on earnings?

No answer. Took days for my community question to be approved and I'd stopped tracking - so your question here is what told me that this was back in.

No answer received so far - @ig is there anyone from the IG team to address these queries?

I'm following this thread as well.

In fact the annual statement that is available for download show 0 Capital Gain/Loss,
while when trade history is downloaded and all calculations are made manually there is a gain.

So not only does IG not provide a statement that can be used for tax purposes,
the statement that is provided is wrong and gets you in trouble...

I trade on the ASX via the IG share trading platform (Not CFDs) and have my daily statements sent via email to Sharesight, this pulls all my trading data and all I have to do come tax time is select generate tax report.  Pretty simple.

I'm a UK resident and I have both a Share Dealing and Smart portfolio account with IG UK. The income (dividends) I receive is highlighted in the Consolidated Tax report that I generally get after the end of the tax year. With regards to CGT, I use an online calculator after pulling all the information from the history tab for both accounts. Any questions please let me know.

Dear team

New user here and I have a quick question.  I came across to your platform due to the competetive brokerage fees and I am happy enough so far.  But I must say I'm surprsied to discover that the basic layout / functionality of all other trading websites I have used is missing.

In particular, the ability to export your CURRENT positions as an excel file (CSV, etc).  I'm not interested in exporting my trading history - I wish to export my CURRENT positions so I can do some analysis of my weightings etc. This is a core routine task performed by sophistocated and amateur investors, yet it is missing from your otherwise very sophistocated platform.

Such a basic product feature but bizarrely missing?

And while I am here it is worth suggesting that you should also copy your competitors and have additional (optional) tabs in the Positions screen - such as showing your positions in your domestic currency and also your individual P&L expressed as a % for each individual holding.

Your help in relation to the Excel question most appreciated.

Hello,

 

I get the above message when trying to buy PML.

 

It also says 'the market you have requested is no longer available online'. How do I buy this one please?

I also have the same question - as I have the same issue, i.e., the 2020 - 2021 consolidated tax certificate is not available.  Any assistance would be much appreciated...

RE: END OF YEAR - TAX SUMMARY

In July 2020 (Last Financial Year here in Australia). I contacted IG by phone and they told me firstly that the report should be uploaded to their site August. I had to wait till OCTOBER to get it.

I had to stall putting in my tax return, which costed me money as I am a pensioner and I could have enjoyed a higher rate of pension if I lodged my tax return earlier. 

Even a CSV export of all transactions would be great !!!

Please IG ..... Lets get it done earlier this year.

Hi, I am also from the UK and struggling to figure out my capital gains tax liability. I am curious which software do you use and find useful. Thanks in advance Peter

Did the report eventually appear on this screen?

I couldn't get Sharesight to work for IG Share trades .. do you forward the individual trades (the individual emails per trade) to Sharesight ..or the daily email summary they send via .PDF?

It's the daily PDF, I had IG set it up so that they send a copy to my private email and the sharesight email address for imports.

I know nothing of the firm you speak of. Only the fact that IG Markets make available an Annual Statement. Sceduled for August.

    • As a result of the precipitous drop in crypto prices, fewer people are willing to trade in high-risk digital coins. Since the beginning of 2018, Coinbase's MTU has been cut by 20%. Investors are curious about whether users continued to move away from the platform despite the slowdown in the downtrend towards the end of Q2 since any rebound could be seen as an early sign of recovery. The earnings report for the second quarter shows that the company's net revenue dropped 35% from Q1 levels, primarily due to a precipitous drop in retail transaction revenue. Anyway, to distress from all the crypto stuff, you can just bet on the World Cup and check on odds brasil copa do mundo.
