New feature - Export your investing history

You get different methods -

FIFO
LIFO
AVCO

I use AVerage COst, but for all 3 in your scenario work out the same.

Even though you sold 20 shares for a quid, all you have done is realise a loss of £20, the other shares you still hold, still cost you £2 each, they didn’t become more expensive as the price you paid was the price at the time.

That only works if you bought shares in equal quantities and did not sell.

Yes that’s the way I would do but I can’t get the one I see on the app

If you wouldn’t mind, if you could share trade history for that one stock and what the current figure is, we could work between them. That way would have something to backup, if for whatever reason the numbers in the app were wrong.

I replied below hope this gonna help

Does this new feature only work for real accounts or even demo ones? I cannot find the CVS data download in the desktop app. Same thing for the android app, even after the update, I can’t find the download button.

Can exported data have price per share not rounded to 2 decimal digits? E.g.
Platform: 100 shares sold 0.2950/share = total 29.50
export: 100 shares sold 0.30/share = total 29.50

This thing still not fixed…

Just a thought, but if you think the dividend rate is showing as Net, can you not work out the actual amount for your taxes in the interim?

I need to prove that the 15% was paid, with this CVS file i cant do that as it has mistakes like this …

a CSV file can’t act as proof in the first place. you can edit the values that are wrong to show the correct value, just like had you made the CSV file yourself to record your account history.

“proof” is evidence that the company pays a certain amount, your countries taxation treaty, (which are both public information) and how much you received in comparison to the original amount which is your own record. none of these have a signed document to vouch for them.
