EFT and Tax

    Thinking of investing in an EFT via degiro. If I make a capital gain on the ETF do I have to pay tax on in. I know there is a certain minimum capital gains, one can make before paying tax, but lets say my gain exceeds that.

    How do I declare the gain. It's not the same as investing in lets say Ryanair shares if they go up by 5,000 euro between 1st Jan to 31st Dec, then I can easily declare this to Revenue.

    Yes you pay tax. CGT for US domiciled ETFs. Exit tax for European ones.

    You declare it in the same way as you would Ryanair shares.
