Taxation of securities and managed investments

About our taxation of securities and managed investments course

Tax should be one of many aspects you factor in when providing advice in securities and managed investments.

An investment in securities carries with it taxation implications, and any earnings made from securities – income or capital gain – are taxable. Investors who own shares, for example, benefit from the dividend imputation system, and certain expenses incurred in earning taxable income from securities can also be claimed. As an adviser, you should have a broad understanding of how securities are taxed and therefore tax implications for your clients.

We examine primary tax issues associated with investing in various financial products – including crypto.
