Selling international shares (from Australia)

Recommended Posts

Hi, newby Jason here! in the process of considering offloading Facebook shares.

I am an Australian resident and of course will have tax obligations in Australia when declaring  the sale on them. Does IG 'act as' or 'have a broker' whereby they can assess and provide all pertinent and relevant info that Australian Tax office will require. (My understanding is that because Facebook has 'built in' dividends that this complicates things somewhat!)

If not, does that simply mean I need to find my own broker in Australia to collate this info?

Any assistance in this matter, much appreciated.

Hi @Jason L - we can provide tax statements as and when required (once the stocks are sold trade statements will also be generated automatically).

James, thanks for the info back in August of last year. Can you confirm or not that it is mandatory for me to gain a share broker to finalise the sale of our shares?

OR

Can I simply use the statement that IG will provide in settling the tax side of things?

Jason

As a share broker we execute your order and provide you with the relevant trading statement and end of year statement. When it comes to tax this is down to the client based on their personal circumstance.

    • Still not clear how the vote will go tomorrow, will depend on Labour MPs, snap poll suggests general population support it. Merkel ready to offer an extension if vote no but Boris seems unlikely to accept. Nick Boles MP  @NickBoles  "All the Benn Act does is oblige the PM to request an extension if he has not got his deal approved by the end of tomorrow. On its own an extension request cannot stop a No Deal Brexit on 31 Oct. The only certain way to stop No Deal is to vote for the deal."
    • Using ProRealTime at the moment But also though first using the API. The backtest functionality of PRT is not too bad though, as you can run through variables up until 10,000 combinations. Currently running through different combinations of TP, SL and entry points
    • Very interesting idea. What software are you using to backtest it? I'm also keen to backtest it, I've built a crude system for backtesting using the IG Index API, I'm tempted to tweak it to test this idea! Will report back here with results if/when I get it up and running.
