    Query on crystallizing losses on shares

    I just read this extract better: "This rule does not apply to shares sold within four weeks, which you may make a loss on. You will not be able to offset this loss against a gain made by you, however. You can only use the loss against a gain made when disposing of those specific shares." from...

    George Hook

    I saw George Hook in the Church of Donaghmede during Lent and he gave a speech on spirituality. I saw two people standing up and leave and they didn't come back... There were moments in which silence was hanging for a few seconds after one of his strong remarks, you could not hear a whisper...

    Excellent articles on personal finance

    Hi, it's years that I am grateful to AAM for the great suggestions and comments that can be found in this site. I also like a lot the "Money" section of Sunday Times which contains advise "by subject" once a week. Is there any other irish newspaper or magazine that has a monthly/weekly/daily...

On such account I recently had to sell some shares and I am now calculating the Capital Gain Tax on this operation (I am crystallising some losses at the same time from part of the shares I sold). I have a couple...

    KBC not showing DIRT-amount(s)

    Hi, KBC is in my opinion the only bank in Ireland not showing DIRT amounts when the interest is paid: - neither as comment as soon as the net interest appears - nor as downloadable certificate when interest is paid I just tried to call them asking for the DIRT-amount (I want to make sure the...

    Liability between exchange of contracts and closing of sale?

    Hello, I'm hoping to buy my own place soon (going through the paperwork now). I have a query I'm hoping someone is able to shed some light on please. My insurance company told me that they can insure my place from the moment I move in, basically when I get the keys. But my solicitor is...

    What are KBC like to deal with?

    I agree, but the Cyprus-case gave me shivers and I would prefer to be able to move money via internet whenever needed rather than sending a form via mail or going to a branch... :(

    What are KBC like to deal with?

    I think that no having the possibility to do online withdrawals is the worst defect they have (they keep promising that online withdrawal-facility will be implemented but the big question is still "when?"). Apart from that - if you have the time to go to a branch everytime you need to make a...
