Product update: you can now connect your Portfolio to Sharesight
You now have the ability to connect your Sharesies Portfolio to a Sharesight account. But who’s Sharesight, and how does this benefit you?
Meet Sharesight 🔎
Sharesight is an online portfolio tracking tool that can track the past performance of a range of investments. It takes into account the impact of capital gains, dividends, brokerage fees, and currency fluctuations when calculating returns. Sharesight can also generate in-depth reports that can be helpful when tax time rolls around.
What are the benefits as a Sharesies investor?
Once your Sharesies Portfolio is connected to a Sharesight account, the details of your buy and sell transactions are automatically sent to Sharesight. This means you don’t need to manually upload transactions, and the whole process ticks along in the background.
Track your Sharesies investments next to everything else
Sharesight can track a range of investments, even if they’re across different asset classes, markets, currencies, and brokers. It’s a great way to keep everything in one place if you own a range of investments!
Generate in-depth tax reports
When tax time rolls around, we provide you with a breakdown of any income received during the financial year through the Sharesies platform. But if you need additional tax information to file your tax return, Sharesight can generate other reports that may help you calculate any tax owed (check out the Sharesight blogs on Australian capital gains tax (CGT) reports or unrealised CGT reports). 🧮 Or, you can easily share your Sharesight portfolio with your accountant, which saves you from forwarding your tax documents separately.
Sounds good, how do I connect my Portfolio?
Connecting your Sharesies Portfolio to Sharesight is easy! In Sharesies, head to Settings > Portfolio > Connect your Portfolio to Sharesight and follow the steps to connect to a new or existing Sharesight account. Fees may apply depending on the Sharesight plan you opt for. You’ll have the option to send your past Sharesies buy and sell transactions to Sharesight. Once you’re connected, new transactions get sent to Sharesight automatically. Too easy!
