What is EBROKING?

EBROKING is a share trading platform established by ESUPERFUND. The platform is offered exclusively to ESUPERFUND clients making trades for their SMSF, and allows clients to trade in Australian, US, UK, Canadian markets.

Why you should import your EBROKING trades to Sharesight

By importing your trades from EBROKING to Sharesight, you can easily see the complete picture of your investment performance if you trade across multiple brokers and asset classes, plus unlock Sharesight’s advanced tax reporting designed for Australian investors.

Unlike the data provided by most brokers, Sharesight takes into account the impact of brokerage fees, dividends and capital gains when calculating investment returns. Sharesight also offers a range of powerful reports for investors including performance, portfolio diversity, contribution analysis, multi-period, multi-currency valuation and future income (upcoming dividends). The ability to track cash accounts, property and even cryptocurrency is just another reason that investors should consider using Sharesight to track their investment portfolio.

Track your dividend income

Unlike other portfolio trackers, Sharesight automatically tracks dividend and distribution income (including dividend reinvestment plans) and takes this into account when calculating your investment return. In the screenshot below for example, dividends make an important contribution to this stock’s returns, highlighting the value of a portfolio tracking solution that includes more than just capital gains in its performance calculations.

Calculate your capital gains tax

Sharesight’s capital gains tax report is the ultimate CGT calculator for Australian investors. The report automatically determines capital gains made on sold shares as per the ATO rules, eliminating the need for investors to make manual calculations, which can be complex and subject to error. Other convenient features include the ability to optimise your tax position by choosing your sale allocation methods, as well as a breakdown of your portfolio’s short-term and long-term capital gains and losses.

How to import your EBROKING trades to Sharesight

Investors trading through EBROKING can easily establish a secure connection between their EBROKING and Sharesight accounts, which will automatically import historical and ongoing trades into their portfolio. Investors who choose not to link their EBROKING and Sharesight accounts can also capture ongoing trades by having their trade confirmation emails automatically forwarded to Sharesight.

Note: While it is possible to import historical trading data via trade confirmations, for your convenience it is recommended that you utilise the direct connection as outlined below, especially if you have a large portfolio of trades.

Connect your EBROKING account directly to Sharesight

EBROKING leverages the Sharesight API to allow investors to automatically import historical and ongoing trades into a Sharesight portfolio.
