Dave's Goldmoney Capital Gains Calculator
Using transaction data that you provide, and guided by your input, this software calculates capital gains and losses resulting from the purchase and sale of metal, currency, and crypto-currency products within your Goldmoney accounts.
This is alpha software and preliminary user documentation.
Free of charge.
Supports any number of Personal and Business accounts, with transfers of gold to a single Holding.
Supports all Goldmoney products offered as of the end of 2017.
International support for different currencies and capital gains holding periods.
Runs on any desktop computer with one of the major browsers (*).
No registration or email address required.
Does not request or collect any personally identifying information.
Doesn't send any data back to the server.
Runs only on your computer. Can "air gap" computer (disconnect from the internet) once script is loaded.
Only accesses files on your computer that you select.
Only stores files on your computer with your permission.
(*) Currently will not work with Microsoft Edge or IE. Tested with Chrome and Firefox.
Desktop computer (the information displayed is too large for tablets and smart phones).
Must download from Goldmoney all transactions since you opened your first Goldmoney holding or network account.
Must proceed year by year up to the current tax year.
Each product in your Holding is treated as a separate "account" with a separate transaction file for each tax year.
All network accounts and the holding need to be the same currency.
It is not possible to change tax currency from one tax year to the next.
The only currencies supported are those offered within the Goldmoney Holding. None of the many additional currencies offered by Personal and Business accounts are supported.
Support for tax years other than January 1 - December 31 calendar year is not implemented.
There's minimal checking of user input. If you try to break it, you will succeed!
Don't click the browser's "back" button! The script will terminate and all work will be lost.
There is no way to save your work and return later to finish it. All transactions for an entire tax year must be processed at one sitting and the results saved. But it only takes a few minutes.
The UI is utilitarian and not very attractive.
