Capital gains tax software for share trading

Capital Gains Tax Software for Share Trading

Didn't find your answer?

Good afternoon one and all,

I've recently acquired a client who buys and sells shares semi-frequently. He's not a day trader, but he does trade somewhere in the region of 15-30 times per year.

He's made large gains on these and not realised he should be reporting them via a personal tax return, and instructed me to complete it for him.

I'm aware of the matching rules and how they should be applied, but it's a long and tedius process when he is buying and selling so frequently, establishing the pools, more so because he trades the same stocks as well.

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for software that could automatically calculate this for me if I could provide the necessary details - he's my only client who is involved with this, just wanting to save time and prevent the risk of errors but for a low cost.

Any recommendations are appreciated, and thanks for taking your time out to read this

Thanks

Brad

As people suggest... check with your software provider in the first instance, as they may already have a workable solution.
