Import Stake trades
Note: If you have already populated your portfolio by forwarding the confirmation emails using the Trade Confirmation Emails feature. Importing the CSV will duplicate the trades in the portfolio.
Step by step guide:
1 - If you are using the Stake app, navigate to the account page click “Tax & Documents” then “Transaction Reports”
If you are using the Stake Web Platform, navigate to the account page and click “Transaction Reports” in the left hand menu, below the “Tax & Documents” section.
2 - Select the date range you want to pull the transaction report for and select format “Excel (Detailed Report)”.
3 - Then click on the “Email Report” button.
4 - You will receive an email with your requested transaction report within a few minutes. If you don’t receive it then check in your junk folder.
5 - Download the attached report.
6 - Login to or Sign up for Sharesight.
7 - On the ‘How would you like to start’ page, select the ‘Import from a Broker’ tile.
8 - Click on the Stake Tile.
Note: If you are a NZ client click on the ‘Show international Brokers’ button to access the Stake tile.
9 - On the ‘Import your historical trades from Stake’ page, click ‘Choose file’.
10 – From the ‘Open file’ window, find and select your downloaded Stake historical transaction report.
The file will likely be in your downloads folder.
11 – Click on the ‘Open’ button.
12 – Click ‘Upload’.
13 – The ‘Trades to import into Portfolio:’ page will show an itemised list of all trades imported from the Stake spreadsheet file. Verify and edit the trade data as required.
If trades appear in red, this means that Sharesight either can’t upload the trade or the trade will cause errors in your portfolio.
A common error issue when importing from a Broker is:
‘Saving this trade would result in a negative number of Shares being held’
This means you are importing more sell shares of a stock than bought shares. It happens if you have transfers stock from another broker or have any off-market trades.
Click ‘Import anyway’ for each of these stocks. Then handle them later in Sharesight.
The solutions to other common errors can be found here.
14 – Once you have verified the trade data, click ‘Save all transactions’.
15 – Once the trades are saved, your Sharesight portfolio will be populated and the Portfolio Overview Page will load.
Your holdings will be calculated by Sharesight’s performance calculation methodology which is a money-weighted return methodology, meaning the investment performance takes account of the size and timing of cash flows. Sharesight will automatically create dividends and corporate actions for the holdings you have imported.
Now that you have populated your portfolio we recommend you:
1 - Review the trades imported:
a - Handle any negative holdings - Holdings with less buy trades than sell trades (occurs when transferred stocks from another broker).
b - Check fractional share trades for rounding differences.
c - Exchange rates are generated by Sharesight using the end of day exchange rate, these can be edited within the trade.
Note: When importing your Stake spreadsheet, sell trades may contain regulatory fees (SEC/TAF fees) within the brokerage field.
2 - Verify and confirm automatically generated data (dividends and corporate actions).
3 - Set up the Trade Confirmation Emails feature to automatically import future trades.
Note: You will need to manually forward on the confirmation emails you receive from Stake to Trade Confirmation Emails (portfolio) email address.
4 - Share access of your portfolio with your accountant.
