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).

    • Another blow to economic growth - EMEA Brief 15 Feb
      Weak retail figures in the US have spilled over to most major stock markets, with European stocks set to open lower this morning. The 1.2% decline in retail sales for the month of December, the biggest drop in almost ten years,  have brought new fears that we are facing a global economic slowdown. The DJIA closed 104 points lower at 25,439.39, the S&P 500 closed 7 points lower at 2,745.73, whilst the Nasdaq managed to close in the positive with a gain of 6.6 points at 7,426.96.
