Last year I have purchased an accumulating ETF from Vanguard (this one). Since in Switzerland distributing and accumulating ETFs are treated the same for tax purposes, and this one is not in the ICTax database, I have to declare the “income” by myself.
How do you go about it? Things I have tried unsuccessfully:
- Look for the equivalent distributing ETF and declaring that amount - does not work since there is no CHF hedged distributing ETF
- Look at the Vanguard annual report to get the total income for the fund and divide that by the number of shares to get a “dividend” - does not work since Vanguard’s reporting is as of June (last twelve months) or December (last six months), and additionally the number of shares varies during the year, making it a difficult calculation to get right
Would appreciate any ideas. Thank you!
