FIF Comparative Value (CV) Report

Content also available for tax entities or on our global site.

The FIF Comparative Value Report is part of the FIF Report available within Sharesight. It takes into account capital gains and dividends from an investment.

Note: This report is only available in New Zealand tax residency portfolios on Expert and Sharesight Pro plans.

The total return is calculated using the comparative value formula in section EX 44 of the Income Tax Act 2004:

(closing market value of shares held + total sales proceeds + dividends received) - (opening market value of shares held + total value of purchases).

No tax is payable when the total return is nil or negative. Foreign investment fund losses cannot be carried forward.
