Reporting Capital Gain/Loss


Recommended Posts

When we buy & sell the same stock multiple times in the same month. Can I report to CRA the total in one line or do I have to report one line per each buy and sell? Example:

Feb 1 buy 100 ABC @ 10 - Feb 3 Sell all @ 15   CG = 500

Feb 5 buy 100 ABC (again) @ 20  - Feb 10 Sell all @ 30   CG = 1000

Can report as   below:

200 shares Total Cost 3000.00  :  Total Proceeds 4500.00  :  CG 1500.00

I have a superficial loss due to transfer in kind into my TFSA/RRSP. But in UFile, if I entered the actual cost with the CRA downloaded disposition amount, the final generated Schedule 3 (PDF) will result a loss. How can I override that value in schedule 3 to make to 0 or empty before NETFILE the form?

I heard people saying change book value (actual is bigger value) to match the disposition such that the generated schedule 3 will not showing a loss. Is this the only way to override the software generated loss to zero. If I do that, I won't be able to report the actual cost/book value for CRA
