Hi, in the video you’ve said to reset payouts if you’ve already confirmed them…Why should we do that if it’s already been manually updated? Is there an advantage to do that?

Hi @dbazd. Great question. If you have filled out your Pro Rata form and it matches your ETF Annual Tax Statement, then there is no benefit to resetting your payouts. Hope that helps!

Hi, I have followed the steps in the video for my vaguard etfs: VGS and VAS. Both don’t match. VGS by 1 cent and VAS by 2 cents. For VGS its foreign source income thats out. For VAS unfranked amount + interest is out by 1 cent and Franking credits out by 1 cent. What to I do ? thank you.

Was there an ETA for the ETFs that were omitted for
iShares (i.e IOZ, IWLD, WDMF, and WVOL)? For curiosities sake why were these omitted?

Hi @emily just checking you saw my question. thanks. :slight_smile:

Hi @abhay, can you reach out to our support team directly & we’ll work with you to get these lined up :pray:

As in link below. It is counter productive and of no use at all.

When my AMMA EOFY statement arrives I create a new payment for 30 June and then add the details from the statement. It is a very simple exercise which only takes a couple of minutes, the entries are precise - there is no chasing the odd cent due to rounding errors and when the net dividend in the form matches the net cash distribution in the statement I know there are no entry errors.

The purpose of the Distribution Payment advice is to tell the investor the $$$ payment after withholding tax is taken out. It is not a tax statement because it does not record tax components - they are in the EOFY AMMA statement. As such it should not be recorded in Sharesight. If applicable the payment advice is also used to record the DRP shares.

But there seems to be a large cohort within Sharesight who believe the solution is to pro rata the EOFY AMMA components across payment advices. I am at a loss to understand why anyone would do that.

I have watched the above video not once, but several times to try and gain an understanding. It seems to change my two minute data entry into this horrendously complex process which from the above introduces small rounding errors.

I am old school having moved from paper to spreadsheet and now to Sharesight. But my recording processes have never changed despite the evolution from paper to electronic and I cannot see any reason for any change.

So here is the request. Would anyone be able to tell me why it is better to record the EOFY AMMA statement pro-rated across distribution payment advices rather than have a relatively simple single EOFY payment?
