Scalable Capital will take care of the securities account transfer for you free of charge. We also pay the sales fees for most securities, which you would have to pay yourself if you sold them yourself. In addition, you may incur the following costs:
Securities that can be traded on German or major international stock exchanges are generally transferable. Our partner bank, Baader Bank, can also sell certain securities over the counter. We check the tradability before the transfer. If Baader Bank cannot trade the securities, you must sell them yourself via your custodian bank. It is possible to transfer a custody account from a domestic bank without any problems, but not all foreign banks support the process.
When a complete securities account is transferred, the loss pots are also transferred. Banks keep two such pots for all investors, one for stocks and one for losses from capital assets that are not stock losses ("Other"). If we sell the transferred securities for you, you may realise gains. These are automatically offset against previous losses that are in your loss pots. This reduces your capital gains tax.
If the sale after the securities account transfer results in losses because you once bought the securities at a higher price, these losses will be transferred to your loss pots in your new securities account at Baader Bank. This happens automatically, you don't have to worry about it. Important: Losses from stock sales can only be offset against realised stock gains. As Scalable Capital only invests in ETFs, there are no stock gains that you can offset against stock losses. In order to claim such losses anyway, you can have a loss certificate issued for your tax return.
