HFM (formerly HotForex): Tax measures Annual trading report How to view trading history


If you trade on HF Markets and get a yearly total plus, you have to declare it to the tax office. If you do not declare it, you may be penalized later, so be careful. HF markets will not send you transaction documents like this, so you will have to look at your transaction history and declare it.

What is an Annual Transaction Report?

What is an annual transaction report? The company calculates the profit and loss for one year and summarizes it as a report for individual investors who have traded stocks. A document issued by a company to a customer who has an account. However, even individuals can see this transaction history, and it is possible to check and investigate the annual performance of the transaction history by themselves.

A list of your accounts will be displayed, so click “Transaction history” on the “Action” button to the right of the account. Your transaction history will be displayed.

You need to be logged in to print the annual trading report on MT4/MT5.

By right-clicking in the “Account History” window, you can set the period. Click on “Period Custom Settings” to select the period for which you would like to create your Annual Transaction Report. After confirming the period of the account history, right-click in the “Account History” window. Click the fifth “Save Report” from the top, select the save destination from the “Save As” window, and click “Save” to download the transaction report.

Unfortunately, reports cannot be downloaded from the smartphone version. You can view your transaction history. For the smartphone version, you can view past transaction history by selecting “Transaction History” from the bottom menu. However, the PC version is clearly more convenient, so I recommend the PC version.

Tax declalation is required

By the way, be sure to file your tax return every year. There are significant penalties for intentionally ignoring or falsely reporting. In Japan, the following penalties may be imposed:

additional tax for non-declaration

Additional tax for non-filing is when the tax office investigates and discovers that you have not filed a tax return. If the amount of tax originally paid is less than 500,000 yen, an additional tax of 15% will be imposed, and if the amount of tax originally paid is more than 500,000 yen, an additional tax of 20% will be imposed. If you voluntarily file a final tax return after the filing deadline has passed and before the tax office investigates it, it will be treated as a “post-deadline tax return.” Even if you file your tax return after the deadline, you will be subject to additional non-filing tax, but the tax rate will be reduced to 5%.

overdue tax

Delinquent tax is a tax that is incurred if the tax is not paid on time. If you are late in filing your tax return or paying your taxes, the amount of delinquent tax may increase depending on the number of days you are late. The tax is 7.3% if it is within 2 months from the day after the due date, and 14.6% if it is more than 2 months from the day after the due date.

double tax

Penalties will also be imposed if you commit fraud, such as filing a tax return with false information. If you falsify or make false entries in your books, you may be subject to heavy additional tax. The tax rate for heavy additional tax is as high as 35% to 40% of the tax amount, and if you cannot pay it, your assets may be seized. Malicious acts of fraud, such as under-reporting income or concealing sales, may result in further criminal penalties.
