Capital Gain Tax on Financial Instruments

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am aware that there is a capital gain tax on financial instruments, but not sure if it depends as well from the instrument traded itself?
If the instrument has a high risk of capital loss, does it have less or no capital gain tax to be paid?

An example: I bought an option on an index and sold it later with a higher price on the market. Do I need to pay taxes on this capital gain?
My broker is DeGiro.

Thanks in advance!

As far as I know, Degiro already deducts the taxes at source. At the end of a year, you can print out a statement directly from the webtrader and use it when you file tax returns.

 

I might be wrong, someone please correct me if so.

Bei DEGIRO erfolgt kein automatischer Abzug der Kapitalertragssteuer. Wir unterstehen ausschließlich der niederländischen Finanzbehörde und werden von dieser reguliert.

 

I looked at them when I changed brokers a couple of years ago and this was the deal-breaker for me. It's simpler to have an onshore broker that already deducts all the German taxes automatically for you.
