Are there any tax implications when transferring my equity portfolio from my existing broker to EasyEquities?

Provided there are no changes in beneficial ownership, there are no tax implications (CGT or STT) for transferring your equity portfolio from one broker to another. 


If there is change in beneficial ownership, Securities Transfer Tax (STT) will be charged on the transfer and a capital gains event will be triggered and any capital appreciation (growth) in the value of the holdings from purchase until that point will be subject to Capital gains tax.
