CGT Reporter Software (Deluxe Version)

CGT Reporter provides historical dividend, corporate action and share price data for every publicly-listed company and trust in Australia back to 1985. It is an essential tool for accountants dealing with investments and capital gains tax and provides powerful tools to drastically reduce the amount of time required to calculate and report on CGT-related events for clients' tax returns and for administering/auditing self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs).

CGT Reporter Deluxe also offers worksheet software which saves accountants and portfolio administrators a huge amount of time with recreating shareholding histories over several years, automatically factoring in all dividends and distributions paid, DRPs, tax-deferred components and capital changes to instantly produce PDF reports and to export into Microsoft Excel.

From July 2013, the beta version of the newly redeveloped cloud-based version of the much-loved CGT Reporter is now available as a module within CCH's integrated accounting suite, CCH iFirm. The market-leading solution for CGT-related tax data can now be accessed from anywhere with internet access. A sleek new look-and-feel is being complemented by our customers' most requested enhancement - daily security prices.
