FundsNetwork launches CGT reporting service

Fidelity FundsNetwork has launched a capital gains tax (CGT) reporting service for advisers, allowing them to produce client CGT reports on demand.

The service, available now, allows advisers to produce reports on their clients’ CGT positions including unrealised and tax-year specific realised gains.

It also allows advisers to deliver bulk snapshot reports or single client reports on CGT positions, and includes over 8m historic transactions on the FundsNetwork system.

“Our intention is that the new service will lessen the burden”

Prices and calculations can be made up to the end of the previous business day and the reports can be downloaded as a PDF or Excel file.

Paul Kennedy, the director of tax and trust planning at Fidelity International, says: “It can be an arduous task to do the calculations. Our intention is that the new service will lessen the burden, allowing advisers to provide a very valuable service to their clients in a cost-efficient manner.” (article continues below)

The group is also launching a nationwide series of tax planning seminars in 31 locations across Britain.

The seminars will run from January 20 to March 11 and will showcase the new CGT service.
