Why investors should track managed funds with Sharesight

Sharesight users can automatically track thousands of Australian and New Zealand funds, including corporate superannuation, wholesale trusts, pension funds, Kiwisaver funds and even some superannuation pension funds. And unlike some legacy offline portfolio systems, there is no extra charge for managed fund data. This means investors can easily track the performance of their managed fund investments along with the rest of their portfolio. Investors will also benefit from the ability to seamlessly connect to Xero, allowing managed fund data to automatically flow through to their Sharesight portfolio.

Easily handle Australian Managed Investment Trust (AMIT) tax calculations

Some Australian managed funds are classed as Australian Managed Investment Trusts (AMIT). This creates additional tax implications for investors, particularly around the treatment of tax-deferred income. Sharesight makes it easier for self-directed investors to handle AMIT tax calculations by offering custom fields that allow AMIT unit holders to correctly record the Trust Income components for these investments. This includes fields for the new (2018) AMIT cost base decrease, and AMIT cost base increase adjustments which feed into Sharesight’s Capital Gains Tax Report calculations and the Taxable Income Report for Australians completing their Tax Return for Individuals form.

See our blog post for more information on AMIT tax calculations.
