@stav Thanks for your comment. Yes you are right you are comparing apples and oranges. The companies you have named are Wealth managers or Investment managers. Freetrade is neither.
I am not questioning the legitimacy of the request - anyone can request whatever they wish. My comment is squarely directed at the assertion or suggestion that the request is about something that is normally provided by most (UK) brokers. My experience with a dozen or so more UK brokers and fund managers over the years is that it is not. So I am simply curious that anyone thinks it is a normal (hygiene) service feature from brokerages.
CGT is not the most simple of things except in simple cases. And in fact CGT computed by one brokerage may not even be accurate if you have a number of brokerages that you work with and have the same share (or class of share) with more than one of them - but again my comment is not really about this point.
It has always been the case that where a brokerage takes off taxes, even if notionally 0%, it provides a certificate to say so.
Whether is makes sense for Freetrade to provide a CGT service is obviously not one that I can contribute to - it is a question for Freetrade Product Management to consider.
