FAQs for Hungarian TBSZ Account

Updated: 2023-11-13

What is a Long-term Investment Account - "Tartós Befektetési Számla" (TBSZ)?

"Tartós Befektetési Számla" or Long-term Investment Account is abbreviated as TBSZ. Its most significant advantage is that after 3 or 5 years respectively, the tax burden on investment returns will be reduced to 10% or 0% from the standard 15% - when realizing the yield.

Who can open a TBSZ?

Any natural person above 18 years old who is a Hungarian tax resident.

Currently, we do not offer TBSZ for condominiums, fiduciary trusts nor private foundations.

How can I open a TBSZ?

You can open a TBSZ directly in the Client Portal or initiate it as a new customer on the website, just like opening any other account. For existing customers, the account opening process takes only a few minutes.

Why do I need to open an Individual Trading account to open a TBSZ?

Your TBSZ will be linked to the Individual Trading account (“primary account”) as the TBSZ can be funded only from an Individual Trading account, and in case the TBSZ matures or breaks, the assets it holds are swept to the Individual Trading account. Additionally, the TBSZ automatically inherits all trading permissions and settings from the Individual Trading account.

Can I open multiple TBSZ?

You can open 1 TBSZ each calendar year with us. (Starting from 2023.)

How can I deposit money into the TBSZ?

You can transfer money to the TBSZ from your primary account. Money deposit is only allowed during the collection year.

How can I place securities into the TBSZ?

You can only deposit money into the TBSZ. The money can be transferred directly from your primary account. Money deposit is only allowed during the collection year.

What is the minimum and maximum amount I can deposit into the TBSZ?

During the collection year, you can deposit any amount with any frequency into the account. The initial deposit must reach at least 25,000 HUF or an equivalent value in any other supported currency. There is no upper limit for the deposited amount.

What is the "collection year"?

The "collection year" refers to the calendar year of opening the account, also known as year 0. You can only deposit money into the account during this calendar year. After the collection year, you can no longer make further deposits, but you can open a new TBSZ with the current calendar year as its collection year.

The lock-in period begins in the year following the collection year.

What is the lock-in period?

This is a 5-year period following the collection year, separated into a 3-year and a 2-year periods. During this time, you can no longer make deposits but can trade with the funds you have already deposited. The 3-year period is called Holding Period 1, while the 2-year period is called Holding Period 2.

At the end of the third year (i.e., the end of Holding Period 1), you can partially or fully withdraw your assets from the account. At the end of the fifth year (i.e., the end of Holding Period 2), you can terminate, or partially or fully reinvest your assets in another TBSZ.

What is Holding Period 1?

Holding Period 1 is a 3-year period that starts in the calendar year following the collection year, beginning on January 1.

If you break the account during this time, you will be required to pay the standard 15% personal income tax on your returns. The 13% social contribution tax (“szocho”) should not apply to this income.

At the end of this period (between December 1-30), you need to notify IBKR by submitting your statement whether you want to withdraw your assets partially or fully to your primary account. If you decide to do so, make sure that the value of assets remaining in your TBSZ is at least 25,000 HUF; otherwise, the account must be terminated.

How can I submit my statement at the end of the third year?

You will receive notification in the Client Portal about the deadline for making the declaration and instructions on how to do it.

What happens if the 3-year period expires, and I don't submit my statement?

In the absence of a declaration, the account will automatically move into the next, 2-year lock-in period, known as Holding Period 2, carrying your assets in their entirety without any changes.

What is Holding Period 2?

Holding Period 2 is a 2-year period that starts in the calendar year following Holding Period 1, beginning on January 1.

If you break the account during this time, you will be required to pay a reduced, 10% personal income tax on your returns. The 13% social contribution tax ("szocho") should not apply to this income.

At the end of this period your TBSZ will be terminated, unless you declare (between December 1-30) that you want to transfer your assets partially or fully to another TBSZ opened in the second year of Holding Period 2. If you decide to do so, make sure that the value of the assets to be transferred is at least 25,000 HUF; otherwise, the transfer will not take place, and your assets will be transferred in their entirety to your primary account.

How can I submit my statement at the end of the fifth year?

You will receive notification in the Client Portal about the deadline for making the declaration and instructions on how to do it.

What happens if the 5-year period expires, and I don't submit my statement?

In the absence of a statement, the account will be terminated, and the assets will be transferred to your primary account in their entirety. In this case, the achieved returns are tax-exempt, and you are not obligated to include them into your Hungarian annual Personal Income Tax return.

If you are a foreign tax resident in addition to your Hungarian tax residency, please consult the tax authority or tax advisor of the country of your tax residency on the tax liabilities arising under your tax law.

When can I trade or adjust my investment portfolio in the TBSZ?

Within the TBSZ, you are free to manage your investments, which means you can trade, open or close positions from year 0 until the end of the fifth year.

Which financial instrument can be traded in the TBSZ?

Any instrument that you can trade on your primary account can be traded in the TBSZ, as the TBSZ inherits all trading permissions and settings of the primary account.

Is investment loan available in the TBSZ?

No. Investment loan (margin) is not supported in the TBSZ.

Is Stock Yield Enhancement Program (SYEP) available in the TBSZ?

No, SYEP is not supported in the TBSZ.

When can I withdraw assets from the TBSZ?

You can withdraw assets at the end of the third year, which is the end of Holding Period 1. By declaring your intent between December 1st and 30th, you can make partial or full withdrawals on January 1st.

You can modify your declaration multiple times during this time. A new declaration overrides the previous one. If the assets requested for withdrawal are not available on December 31, the requested withdrawal will not be executed, and the assets will remain in the TBSZ. For the returns of the amount withdrawn, you will be liable to pay 10% personal income tax. The 13% social contribution tax ("szocho") should not apply to this income.

If you withdraw assets before the end of the third year (within Holding Period 1), the account will be terminated, and you will be taxed at the standard, 15% tax rate on the returns.

If you withdraw assets after the end of the third year, but before the end of the fifth year (within Holding Period 2), the account will be terminated, and you will be taxed at a reduced, 10% tax rate on the returns.

However, the 13% social contribution tax ("szocho") should not apply to this income in either case.

How do I pay the tax?

You are responsible for determining, declaring, and paying the tax to the NAV through self-assessment. If you withdraw assets from your TBSZ - fully or partially - before your TBSZ ceases, as well if your TBSZ ceases at the end of Holding Period 2, then you will be provided a TBSZ tax certificate issued via the Portal until 31 January of the following year.

If your TBSZ ceases at the end of Holding Period 2 (after 5 years from the end of collection year), and your income is subject to 0% tax rate, then you don't have to include this income into your Hungarian Personal Income Tax return.

If you are a foreign tax resident in addition to your Hungarian tax residency, please consult the tax authority or tax advisor of the country of your tax residency on the tax liabilities arising under your tax law.

Can I transfer my assets to another TBSZ at another service provider?

You can transfer a TBSZ in its entirety, including all assets in the account, to another provider.

This is possible even if you already have a TBSZ at the receiving service provider with the same collection year as the TBSZ you wish to transfer. In this case, the two TBSZs will merge.

How can I initiate a TBSZ transfer from IBKR to another service provider?

You can initiate the transfer of an existing TBSZ in the Client Portal where you will receive further instructions about the transfer process.

Can I transfer my TBSZ to IBKR?

Yes. You need to open a TBSZ for each year you wish to transfer, and then to complete the transfer-in request for each of them.

To open a TBSZ in Client Portal, go to Settings > Open an Additional Account > Individual Brokerage Accounts > TBSZ.

To complete a transfer-in request in Client Portal, select the TBSZ on the home screen, then go to Transfer &Pay > Transfer Funds > Transfer from Another Broker.

Note: if you do not see the Transfer from Another Broker option in Client Portal it is because it is not available for you at the moment due to the gradual rollout of the function. Please check the option later.

Can I transfer my NYESZ to IBKR?

No, you cannot transfer NYESZ to IBKR. However, you can convert your NYESZ into a TBSZ at your current service provider and instruct the service provider to transfer the TBSZ to IBKR.  The year when the NYESZ is converted to a TBSZ will be the collection year of this TBSZ.

When does the TBSZ expire or terminate?

The TBSZ terminates under the following circumstances:

  • At the end of the 5-year, ergo at the end of Holding Period 2 on December 31st, or
  • If the value of the account drops below 0 HUF at any time, or
  • If you submit a statement for partial withdrawal, but the value of the assets remaining in your TBSZ is below 25,000 HUF at the end of the 3-year Holding Period 1, on December 31st, or
  • If an asset is removed from the TBSZ, except at the end of Holding Period 1.

Does the TBSZ offer tax-exemption for dividends?

The TBSZ account shelters the dividend income only when it originates from Hungary. Foreign dividends do not enjoy the tax protection of the TBSZ because the foreign dividend payers may withhold foreign taxes from the payable amount. The Hungarian personal income tax will not be withheld from the dividend amount.

What are the costs and fees associated with the TBSZ?

A minimum activity fee is imposed in the TBSZ, which amounts to 2,000 HUF per month.

This fee applies collectively to all TBSZs, regardless of their number. So, whether you have 1, 3, or 5 TBSZs, the fee remains 2,000 HUF per month.

The minimum activity fee is reduced based on the total commission generated from trading in the TBSZs in each month. For example, if you have four TBSZs, and each generates commission equivalent to 300 HUF, the payable minimum activity fee would be 800 HUF (2,000 – 4 * 300 = 800).

Do I have to notify NAV about the account opening?

Yes. IBKR will provide you with a certification upon the first funding of the TBSZs. This certificate you will need to submit to NAV within 30 days from the first funding in order to enjoy the tax protection of the TBSZ.

Do I have to notify NAV about account transfers?

You have to notify NAV if you transfer your TBSZ from IBKR to another investment firm. Similarly, you should notify NAV when you transfer your TBSZ from another investment provider to IBKR. In the absence of such notification, you cannot enjoy the tax protection of the TBSZ.

The data that NAV should be notified of: the fact of transfer and the amount of the transferred assets. The timeline is within 30 days from the date of the transfer.  

Do I have any reporting obligation towards NAV?

Yes. IBKR will provide you with a tax certificate until 31 January of the following year in the case of TBSZ termination or partial withdrawal from the TBSZ. You will be required to include the amount of the taxable income as per the IBKR tax certificate in your annual Personal Income Tax return.

FAQs: Account Migration from IB LLC to IBSJ

Overview: 

 

This is an important document regarding the proposed transfer of your account from Interactive Brokers LLC (“IB LLC”) to Interactive Brokers Securities Japan, Inc. (“IBSJ”) that requires your attention. Please read the entirety of this document before deciding whether to accept or decline the Invitation sent to you via email.

 

Background: 

 

This FAQ document summarizes some of the key changes to the regulatory framework that would result from the Proposed Transfer (as described below) and provides answers to some general questions that you may have. The FAQs should be read in conjunction with the Invitation. If you require any further information, please contact us via the details provided in the Invitation.

 

This FAQ is split into three parts.

  • Part A sets out key information in relation to the Proposed Transfer (as described below).
  • Part B covers key legal and regulatory topics related to the Proposed Transfer (as described below).
  • Part C aims to answer any other questions that you may have and provides some further and more practical information in relation to what will and will not be changing following the Proposed Transfer (as described below).

PART A – THE PROPOSED TRANSFER

 

1.        What is the situation currently and why are things changing?

Interactive Brokers Securities Japan, Inc. (“IBSJ”) was granted authorization by the Kanto Local Finance Bureau to operate as a Japanese securities firm in October 2005. At that time, we attempted to leverage the strength of Interactive Brokers Group (and its ability to provide clients access to global markets) by offering an account structure that would allow clients to access markets worldwide as well as the Japanese market, all through a single domestic account. In the course of establishing this structure, we realized our goal to provide access to overseas markets from a single domestic account would entail a degree of complexity due to differences in settlement in non-JPY currencies and Japanese domestic regulations. Therefore, we implemented an account structure to offer overseas (non-Japanese domesticated) products through IBSJ’s affiliated broker-dealer based in the U.S., Interactive Brokers LLC (“IB LLC”), intermediated by IBSJ, while offering Japanese domestic products through an IBSJ account.

IBSJ is now modifying this approach and will begin providing access to Japanese and Global markets directly, through a single IBSJ account. As a result, IB LLC will no longer support accounts for retail Japanese clients intermediated by IBSJ.

  

2.     What “changes” will Japanese clients experience?

We propose to transfer the business that you currently conduct with IB LLC to IBSJ. In other words, it is our intention that the accounts, investments and services currently provided to you by IB LLC will instead be provided by IBSJ (for convenience we will refer to this as the “Proposed Transfer”).

 

3.     When will the Proposed Transfer occur?

The Proposed Transfer is scheduled to commence soon after June 14, 2023. We will alert you once your account is transferred.

 

4.     Who is IBSJ? What type of firm is it?

IBSJ is a Japanese online securities broker which is regulated by Kanto Local Finance Bureau under the Registration No.187 for its financial business and regulated by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) / Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) for its commodity derivative business.

   

5.     What are IBSJ’s legal details?

IBSJ is registered as a private company limited by shares and is listed in the Register of Companies maintained by Tokyo legal affairs bureau. Its registered address is Kasumigaseki Building 25F, 2-5 Kasumigaseki 3-Chose, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, 100-6025 Japan.    

IBSJ’s website is available at: https://www.interactivebrokers.co.jp/en/home.php

 

6.     Who will regulate IBSJ and where are their details?

As set out above, Kanto Local Finance Bureau (KLFB) is the competent financial business regulator for IBSJ while Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) / Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) are the regulators for IBSJ’s commodity derivative business. IBSJ is also a member of Japan Securities Dealers Association (JSDA) and the Commodity Futures Association of Japan (CFAJ).

The details for the regulator and the self-regulatory organizations above are set out in the links below:

Kanto Local Finance Bureau (KLFB)
https://lfb.mof.go.jp/kantou/
 
Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI)
 
Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF)
 
Japan Securities Dealers Association (JSDA)
 
The Commodity Futures Association of Japan (CFAJ)

 

7.     Where does IBSJ fit in the broader Interactive Brokers group?

IBSJ is a wholly-owned subsidiary that sits within the Interactive Brokers Group.

 

8.     What does the Proposed Transfer mean for me? Will there be any material impacts?

It is very important that you read this FAQs carefully and make sure that you understand what the changes are for you. Initially, IBSJ will have a limited product offering for global markets. However, IBSJ plans to extend its global offering (as further explained in Part C) and will notify you of new products you can trade. 

 

9.     What do I have to do if I want to continue doing business with Interactive Brokers?

If you would like to continue to do business with Interactive Brokers, we require your signed consent and action.

Specifically, we require you to consent and agree to the Customer Agreement and other Documents available under the Important Information section of the Proposed Transfer process and to the regulatory matters outlined in the Invitation, the Important Information and Consent sections of the Proposed Transfer process.  You can do this by following the instructions in the Invitation.

To be clear, you do not have to agree to the Proposed Transfer. However, if you decide to decline or do nothing, IB LLC will not be able to keep servicing your account after the proposed account transfer period. As part of the process, your account may be restricted, and your account may be forced closed. You have the ability to transfer the positions in your account to either IBSJ or another broker by August 31, 2023. If you wish to decline, please follow the instructions in the Invitation.

In either case, we ask that you read the entirety of this FAQ and the Invitation before deciding to consent to or decline the Proposed Transfer. 

 

10. What happens next?

If you consent to the transfer, please complete all actions detailed in the Invitation and we will prepare your account for the Proposed Transfer. If you already have an IBSJ account, your assets held in the IB LLC account will be consolidated into the IBSJ account following the Proposed Transfer. Following the Proposed Transfer, IBSJ will write to you with further information about the consolidated structure.

 

PART B – LEGAL AND REGULATORY CHANGES THAT YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF

 

1.     What terms and conditions will govern my relationship with IBSJ following the Proposed Transfer? Are these different to the ones that currently apply?

Trades that you conduct after the Proposed Transfer will be governed by the new Customer Agreement between you and IBSJ.  A copy of the new Customer Agreement is available in the Important Information section of the Proposed Transfer process.  Please see the response to Question A3 above in relation to the timing for the Proposed Transfer.

 

2.     What conduct of business rules (including best execution) will apply to my relationship with IBSJ?

The U.S. conduct of business rules apply to IB LLC accounts. These rules are based on the regulations and rules set by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commissions (“SEC”).

The IBSJ account will be subject to Japan conduct of business rules, which include regulations and rules set by Financial Service Agency (“FSA”), Japan Securities Dealers Association (“JSDA”) and the Commodity Futures Association of Japan (“CFAJ”).

 

3.     How will investments that I custody with IBSJ be held from a legal/regulatory perspective? Are there any material differences that will apply to my agreement with IBSJ compared to those that apply to my existing agreement with IB LLC? 

U.S. law and regulations regarding custody of securities and customer funds apply to your accounts with IB LLC.  These include rules set by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). The US custody rules require that any cash and fully-paid securities held by IB LLC on your behalf must be held segregated from the assets of IB LLC.

Going forward, Japan custody rules will apply to your agreement with IBSJ. Similar to the U.S. custody rules, the Japan conduct of business rules are based on the regulations on segregation of customers assets set by Financial Instruments and Exchange Act (further explain below in Question B4).  

 

4.     How am I protected against loss? Are there any material differences that will apply to my relationship with IBSJ compared to those that apply to my existing relationship with IB LLC?

IBSJ’s compensation scheme is different from the compensation scheme you have access to at IB LLC.

Currently, your eligible assets are protected from loss under the U.S. Securities Investor Protection Corporation at an amount of up to USD 500,000 (subject to a cash sublimit of USD 250,000).

After the Proposed Transfer, in the unlikely event of IBSJ’s failure, a certain amount of money is protected by the Japan Investor Protection Fund. Here is a summary of how the Japanese investor protection mechanism works:

(1) Segregated custody by securities firms

When investors trade financial instruments (stocks or other securities), they entrust their assets such as money and financial instruments to a securities firm. If the securities firm keeps the assets entrusted by the customer separate from the securities firm's own assets, the customer's assets will be returned to the customer even if the securities firm fails.

This practice of keeping assets entrusted by customers separate from the securities firm's own assets is called segregated custody. This concept is central to investor protection, and segregated custody is required of all securities companies under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law.

(2) Japan Investor Protection Fund

Under this segregated custody system, even if a securities firm files for bankruptcy protection, the assets entrusted by customers will be returned to them in full. However, for instances where the securities firm is unable to smoothly return the full amount for any reason, a compensation system is in place through the Japan Investor Protection Fund, which provides compensation up to 10 million yen per customer.

However, as explained in section (1) above, the Japan Investor Protection Fund regulation serves to prevent such a situation from occurring because the assets entrusted by customers will be returned to them if they are kept in the segregated custody of securities companies.

Please note that the Japan Investor Protection Fund (similar to US rules) does not compensate for losses incurred by clients due to a drop in the market value of securities. 

 

5.     How do I make a complaint to IBSJ? Are there any material differences that will apply to my agreement with IBSJ compared to those that apply with IB LLC? What if my complaint relates to something that dates to when I was a customer of IB LLC?

The new Customer Agreement sets out how to file a complaint with IBSJ.  The complaints handling procedures are materially similar to those that apply to your existing agreement with IB LLC.  If the substance of your complaint relates to something that occurred prior to the Proposed Transfer, then you should address your complaint to IB LLC.  

 

6.     After the Proposed Transfer, will I still have access to the US regulators to file a complaint?

In case of a complaint, clients should follow the complaints procedure as referred to in the Customer Agreement. Once your account is transferred to IBSJ, the US regulators will cease to have jurisdiction over any complaints you may have in respect to IB LLC. However, please be aware that Japan has a dispute resolution process in the form of the Financial Instruments Mediation Assistance Center (FINMAC), a non-profit organization, to resolve complaints and disputes between customers and IBSJ regarding covered issues. Please refer to the following link for the details of FINMAC.. https://www.finmac.or.jp/english/

 

7.     How will my personal data be processed and protected? Are there any material differences that will apply to my agreement with IBSJ compared to those that apply to my existing agreement with IB LLC in this context?

Your data will be processed and protected in accordance with the IBSJ Privacy Policy. which can be found at: https://ndcdyn.interactivebrokers.com/Universal/servlet/Registration_v2.formSampleView?formdb=4102&lang=ja. There will be no material change to how your data is protected now.

 

 PART C – OTHER PRACTICAL QUESTIONS AND NEXT STEPS

 

1.     Who should I contact before the Proposed Transfer takes place and after the Proposed Transfer if I have any general questions?

Generally speaking, you should contact IB LLC with any questions that you may have prior to the Proposed Transfer, and you should contact IBSJ with any questions that you may have after the Proposed Transfer takes place.  Regardless of who you contact at Interactive Brokers, we will ensure your query is promptly dealt with and we will make best efforts to expediate any issues related to the account migration.

 

2.     Will the range of products offered be the same?

The range of products offered by IBSJ will not be the same as what is currently offered at IB LLC. Initially, IBSJ will offer:

·         Fully-paid trading in overseas (non-Japanese domesticated) stocks, ETFs and exchange listed bonds that can be offered in Japan; and

·         The Japanese domestic listed stocks and derivatives, Japanese stock CFDs, and some Japanese yen-denominated overseas derivatives that IBSJ has historically offered.

All unsupported holdings in your IB LLC account need to be closed out before your account can transfer to IBSJ. If you hold any product other than those stated above, please take the time to close out such positions before the Proposed Transfer to allow for a smooth transfer of your account and to avoid any account restrictions.

IBSJ plans to expand the types of other overseas products that it offers in the coming months. We will update these FAQs with additional details as we do.

View the list of available IBSJ products here: https://www.interactivebrokers.co.jp/en/trading/products.php

3.   What currencies are supported at IBSJ?

IBSJ will support a limited number of deposit currencies. The following four deposit currencies, the "Allowed Deposit Currencies"' are JPY, EUR, USD and GBP.

Clients with multi-currency accounts can make deposits in, and withdraw positive balances held in their account, of any Allowed Deposit currencies.

Multi-currency accounts may hold long currency balances in all available IBKR global currencies, including currencies that are not Allowed Deposit Currencies. Short currency balances are not supported at this time. IBSJ will automatically flatten any short currency balance by converting from a long currency balance available in the account.

For further information, please see IBSJ's Risk Disclosure Statement for IB Multi-Currency Accounts.

 

4.    What happens if I already have an account at IBSJ?

If you have an existing account with IBSJ, the assets in your IB LLC account will be transferred to your IBSJ account after the Proposed Transfer takes place. If you do not have an IBSJ account, we will create a new one for you.

 

5.  Will I have access to the same trading platform or be subject to any software changes following the transfer of my account?

The migration will have no impact upon the software you use to trade or administer your account. The technology will remain the same as it is today. 

 

6.     Will all account balances be transferred at the same time?

All balances, with the exception of accruals (e.g., interest, dividends) will be transferred at the same time.  Once accruals have been posted to cash, they will automatically be swept to the transferred account.  

 

7.     What will happen to my current account following the transfer of my account to IBSJ? 

Once all accruals have been swept, your current IB LLC account will be closed and inaccessible for trading purposes.  You will still be able to access this closed account via the Client Portal for purposes of viewing and printing archived activity and tax statements.

 

8.     Will IBSJ’s commissions and fees change when my account is transferred? 

No. IBSJ commissions and fees do not vary from the ones charged by IB LLC for your current account. However, since IBSJ is a Japanese securities broker, Japanese consumption tax will be added to all fees. 

 

9.     Will my trading permissions change when my account is transferred? 

Your trading permissions will not change when your account is transferred for products that are supported by IBSJ. Trading permissions not supported by IBSJ will not migrate to the IBSJ account.

 

10. Will open orders (e.g., Good-til-Canceled) be carried over when my account is migrated? 

Open orders will not be carried over to the new account.  You must resubmit any orders when your account is migrated.

 

11. Will I receive a single, combined annual activity statement at year end? 

You will receive an annual statement for your existing IB LLC account which will cover the period starting 1 January 2023 through the date of transfer and a second annual statement for your new account at IBSJ which will cover the period starting from the migration date through the end of the year ending December 2023. 

 

12. Will the current cost basis of positions be carried over when my account is migrated? 

Yes, this migration will have no impact upon the cost basis of your positions.

 

13. Will the migrated account retain the same configuration as the current account? 

The configuration of the account following migration will match that of the current account to the extent permissible by regulation. This includes attributes such as market data, additional users, and alerts. 

 

14. Will my login credentials change?

No. Your username, password, and any 2-factor authentication process in place for your existing account will remain active following migration. If you have an existing IBSJ account, your account number will not change.  If you do not have an IBSJ account and we create a new one for you, you will receive a new account ID.

 

 

È possibile avere un conto cointestato con più di due persone fisiche?

IB offre tre tipi di conti cointestati: “Comunione con diritto di reversibilità”, “Comunione pro indiviso” e infine “Comunione dei beni”. Ciascuno di questi tipi di conto cointestato è disponibile solamente per due titolari di conto.

I richiedenti interessati ad aprire un conto con più titolari (ovvero più di due) potranno prendere in considerazione l’ipotesi di forme quali la società, la partnership, la LLC (limited liability company) o anche altre strutture legali diverse dalla società costituite disponibili presso IB.  Ti ricordiamo che in genere la documentazione per dimostrare la costituzione di una società viene richiesta nel momento in cui si compila la richiesta di apertura di un conto.

Le persone fisiche che non risiedono negli Stati Uniti sono soggette a ritenute alla fonte?

Overview: 

 

Le informazioni relative agli obblighi fiscali vengono segnalate nel rispetto delle disposizioni dell’amministrazione finanziaria del tuo paese di residenza. Verrà inoltre tenuto conto della normativa di altri paesi, qualora i prodotti di trading siano soggetti a ritenute fiscali previste dai criteri fissati dai singoli paesi.  In assenza di indicazioni specifiche emanate dall’amministrazione finanziaria, IBKR non effettua alcuna ritenuta fiscale sui proventi della vendita di titoli. Nel rispetto di quanto imposto dalla legislazione fiscale degli Stati Uniti d’America, per esempio, siamo tenuti a trattenere le tasse statunitensi sui dividendi versati dalle società statunitensi a soggetti stranieri ad un tasso del 30%. Nel caso in cui esista un trattato fiscale tra gli Stati Uniti e il tuo paese, il tasso potrebbe essere più basso. Inoltre, il reddito proveniente da interessi sugli investimenti non è soggetto ad alcuna ritenuta statunitense. Tutte le ritenute fiscali riguardanti soggetti che non sono cittadini americani e per la maggior parte delle entità verrà segnalato nel Modulo 1042-S al termine di ogni anno. Per maggiori informazioni, ti invitiamo a fare riferimento al documento noto come Publication 901 dell’IRS (Agenzia delle Entrate negli USA) oppure a contattare il tuo consulente fiscale di fiducia.

Informazioni sui conti vincolati per titoli sanzionati

Overview: 

Nel caso in cui tu possieda titoli soggetti alle sanzioni complessive imposte dall’Ufficio di controllo dei beni stranieri (OFAC) - agenzia governativa del Dipartimento del Tesoro degli Stati Uniti – verrà aperto un conto vincolato intestato a te.
 

Perché possiedo un conto vincolato?

Abbiamo creato un “conto vincolato” per te in modo che tu possa mantenere le posizioni sui titoli sanzionati; in questo modo tali asset sono separati dagli altri investimenti che possiedi nel rispetto delle norme fissate dalle sanzioni.


Che cos’è un conto vincolato?

Questo conto vincolato verrà usato solamente per titoli sanzionati che non possono essere negoziati o trasferiti.


Posso annullare il mio conto vincolato?

No. Non ti sarà possibile annullare il tuo conto vincolato fino a quando possiederai dei titoli sanzionati.


Come posso fare per accedere al mio conto vincolato?

I conti vincolati sono visibili nel Portale Clienti in maniera del tutto identica a quella degli altri conti posseduti dai clienti. La modalità di accesso al nuovo conto vincolato sarà del tipo “sola lettura” e ti sarà possibile ottenere gli estratti conto e i report.


Posso guadagnare interessi/dividendi sugli asset presenti nel conto vincolato?

No. IBKR non riceve alcun interesse o dividendo dall’emittente. IBKR deve rispettare la norma che vieta l'elaborazione di qualsiasi pagamento di dividendi relativi ai titoli sanzionati.


In che maniera gli asset nel conto vincolato possono avere un impatto sul VPN (Valore patrimoniale netto) del mio conto?

Il tuo conto vincolato è collegato ai tuoi conti regolari ma, dato che i titoli presenti in quel conto sono soggetti a sanzioni, il capitale del conto vincolato non viene considerato come parte del valore patrimoniale degli altri conti.


In che modo gli asset nel conto vincolato possono avere un impatto sui miei limiti di margine?

Tutti i titoli sanzioni non sono marginabili e non possono essere usati come garanzia per supportare altre posizioni.


Come posso fare per generare estratti conto relativi al conto vincolato?

Potrai generare gli estratti conto attraverso il Portale Clienti in maniera del tutto identica a come si fa per i conti regolari.


Posso generare degli estratti conti separati o combinati per i miei conti?

Sì. Gli estratti conto potranno essere generati nello stesso modo in cui di solito si procede per i conti multipli tradizionali.


Posso scaricare dalle tasse gli asset presenti nel conto vincolato?

L’impatto di tipo fiscale degli asset presenti nel tuo conto vincolato potrebbe variare in base al Paese nel quale ti trovi. Interactive Brokers consiglia ai propri clienti di consultare un esperto in materia fiscale per comprendere bene la legislazione specifica e l’impatto fiscale dei titoli sanzionati.

Il mio conto vincolato sarà soggetto alle stesse protezioni previste per il mio conto di brokeraggio presso IBKR?

Sì. I tuoi asset resteranno nel conto vincolato ma avranno comunque le stesse protezioni che si applicano al tuo conto di brokeraggio presso IBKR.

About Escrow Accounts for Sanctioned Securities

Overview: 

An escrow account was opened in your name if you own securities that are subject to comprehensive sanctions imposed by the US Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control ("OFAC").
 

Why do I have an escrow account?

We created an “escrow account” for you to hold positions in sanctioned securities so they are segregated from your other holdings in accordance with sanctions regulations.


What is an escrow account?

This escrow account will be used only to hold your sanctioned securities, which cannot be traded or transferred.


Can I cancel my escrow account?

No, you are not able to cancel your escrow account so long as you hold sanctioned securities.


How do I access my escrow account?

Escrow accounts will be visible in Client Portal in the same way as all other accounts owned by the clients. You will have read only access to the new escrow account and obtain statements & reports.


Do I earn any interest / dividends on the assets held in escrow?

No, IBKR is not allocated the interest or dividend from the custodian and is prohibited from processing dividend payments on sanctioned securities.


How do assets held in escrow affect my account’s NAV?

Your escrow account is linked to your regular account(s) but its equity is not considered part of the value of your non-escrow account(s), as these securities are subject to sanctions.


How do assets held in escrow affect my margin limits?

All sanctioned securities are non-marginable and cannot be used as collateral to support other positions.


How do I generate statements for the escrow account?

You can generate statements through Client Portal just as you would for your regular account.


Can I generate separate and combined statements for my accounts?

Yes, statements should be generated in the same way you would if you held multiple non-escrow accounts.


Can I write off assets held in escrow from my taxes?

The tax impact of your escrowed assets may vary by your location. Interactive Brokers recommends you consult with a local tax professional to understand the specific tax impacts of these sanctioned securities.


Is my escrow account subject to the same protections as my IBKR brokerage account?

Yes, your assets will remain in the escrow account but have the same protections as your IBKR brokerage account.

Information Regarding IBUK JISA (Junior Individual Savings Account)

1.       What is a Junior ISA and what benefits does it offer your child?
 
Junior ISAs (Individual Savings Accounts), or JISAs, were introduced as a replacement for Child Trust Funds (CTFs). A Junior ISA is a tax-free savings or investment account to save or invest in for your child. There are two types of Junior ISA: a Junior cash ISA that pays interest, and a Junior stocks and shares ISA that lets you invest in “qualifying instruments” such as stocks and shares, funds, etc. The interest on cash accumulates on a tax-free basis, as does income and capital gains made on investments.
 
A Junior stocks and shares ISA is not an investment in its own right. The best way to think of a Junior stocks and shares ISA is as a ‘wrapper’ with which you can shelter your child’s savings and investments from both Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax. The IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA lets you choose from a range of investments to invest in for your child (see below section 12 ‘What can I invest in for my child?’). You can select and manage your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA yourself or arrange for your financial advisor to do so on your behalf (see below section 9 ‘Can I appoint a financial advisor to manage, on a discretionary basis, my child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?’).
 
2.       What ISA types are offered at IBUK?
 
Interactive Brokers (U.K.) Limited (IBUK) only offers stocks and shares ISAs (including, Junior Stocks and Shares ISA). IBUK does not offer cash ISAs (including, Junior cash ISA).
 
3.       Who is eligible for a Junior ISA?
 
Your child is eligible for a Junior ISA if they’re under the age of 18, and resident in the UK. You can also open a Junior ISA for your child if you are a crown employee serving overseas.
 
A child cannot hold both a CTF (Child Trust Fund) account and a Junior ISA. This is relevant to anyone under 18 who was born between 1 September 2002, when CTFs were introduced, and 3 January 2011 when they came to an end. If your child holds a CTF account, you cannot open an IBUK Junior ISA since IBUK does not support CTF transfers, other Junior ISA providers may accommodate your Junior ISA request.  
 
4.       How many Junior ISAs can a child have?
 
A child can have no more than one Junior cash ISA and one Junior stocks and shares ISA at any one time (don’t have to be with the same provider). A child cannot hold both a CTF (Child Trust Fund) account and a Junior ISA.  
 
5.       Who can open a Junior ISA and who is the registered contact?
 
You can open a Junior ISA for a child if you’re their parent or legal guardian. The parent or legal guardian opening the account will be the ‘registered contact’, but the money will not be accessible to them and will always belong to the child. The child normally won’t be able to access the money until their 18th birthday, at which point their Junior ISA is converted into an ‘adult’ ISA.
 
As the registered contact for a Junior ISA, you are the only person authorised to make decisions about the management of the account. You’ll also need to keep IBUK informed if the child’s personal details change, e.g., if they change their name, address, contact number, etc.
 
6.       How do I change the registered contact for an IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
You should use the Interactive Brokers change of registered contact form (via Client Portal) to change the registered contact for an IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA. The existing registered contact must sign this application to authorise this change unless where certain exemptions apply.
 
NB. IBUK will not allow a child to be the Registered Contact upon their 16th birthday, other ISA providers may allow this (i.e., once the child reaches the age of 16, the child can apply to become the Registered Contact).
 
For more information on how to change a registered contact please contact our dedicated ISA Support team who are available 8am to 6pm GMT Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays (see below section 29 ‘What if I have additional questions?’)
 
7.       Who owns the Junior ISA and what happens when the child turns 18?
 
All payments made into a Junior ISA belong to the child (i.e., all payments made into the Junior ISA are a gift to the child and as such cannot be repaid to the subscriber if at a later date the subscriber changes their mind). The parent or guardian who opened the Junior ISA acts as the registered contact, but they can’t access the money once it has been deposited, unless there are exceptional circumstances (see below section 11 ‘Can I make withdrawals from a Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?’). When your child turns 18, the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA will automatically become an ‘adult’ IBUK Stocks and Shares ISA (i.e., when the child turns 18, account ownership is automatically transferred to them). As an adult, they’ll become the account holder, responsible for managing their account and able to withdraw monies. For more information on how this transfer of control (from the registered contact to the child (upon the child’s 18th birthday)) works, please contact our dedicated ISA Support team who are available 8am to 6pm GMT Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays (see below section 29 ‘What if I have additional questions?’)
 
8.       Can you lose your child’s money paid into a Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
The value of investments your child holds in the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA and the income received from them can fall as well as rise. As a result, you may get back less than you invested in for your child. Past performance is not an indication of future performance, and some investments need to be held for the long term to achieve a return. The IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA is an execution only service, Interactive Brokers does not provide investment advice. If you need advice about whether an investment is suitable, you need to consult a suitably qualified financial advisor.
 
9.       Can I appoint a financial advisor to manage, on a discretionary basis, my IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
Yes, you can appoint a financial advisor to manage the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA on your behalf. Click on the link for additional details:
 
 
10.   Can I trade on margin under the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
No. You can only open an IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA under a GBP cash account type. A cash account requires that all transactions are made with available cash or long positions.
 
11.   Can I make withdrawals from a Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
No, unless exceptional circumstances exist. All payments made into the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA are a gift to the child and so cannot normally be withdrawn until the child turns 18. NB. withdrawals are permitted if the child is terminally ill or has died in accordance with the ISA Regulations.
 
12.   What can I invest in for my child?
 
Under a Junior stocks and shares ISA you can invest in any of the following investments (also known as 'qualifying investments'):
-          Shares;
-          Securities issued by Companies;
-          Recognised UCITS;
-          Depository Receipts, American Depository Receipts and American Depository Shares.

14.   What is the Junior ISA Allowance for 2023/2024 tax year?
 
Tax year runs from 6 April to the following 5 April. Each tax year’s Junior ISA subscription limit is specific to that year and can be checked on the HMRC website. 
 
NB. For each tax year, you can check (via the funding page in Client Portal) how much you have subscribed to your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA and the maximum amount that you can contribute to your child’s IBUK Junior stocks and shares ISA in that tax year, assuming you have not contributed to another Junior ISA away from Interactive Brokers.
 
For the 2022/23 tax year, the Junior ISA annual subscription limit is £9,000. This is a combined annual limit across both types of Junior ISA: cash, and stocks and shares. The subscription limit can be split in any way between cash, and stocks and shares Junior ISAs each tax year.
 
15.   How do I make subscriptions to my IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?

You can make one-off payments (wire transfers deposits) as and when you choose, but the combined total of all payments (or subscriptions) must not exceed any given annual tax year allowance (see section 14. What is the 2022/2023 Junior ISA Allowance?).
 
Interactive Brokers accepts wire transfers only, and there is a minimum subscription amount of £1. Your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA can only have GBP cash.
 
Although other Junior ISA providers might have different terms, only parent or legal guardian can pay into your child’s Junior ISA with IBUK.
 
16.   What happens if I exceed my child’s Junior ISA allowance?
 
If you have accidentally paid too much into your child’s Junior ISAs your child won’t get any tax relief on the excess payments you’ve made. The Junior ISA allowance is a combined annual limit across both types of Junior ISA: cash, and stocks and shares.
 
17.   What should I do if I exceed my child’s Junior ISA allowance?
 
In the event you oversubscribe to your child’s Junior ISA (in other words your child’s Junior ISA annual allowance was exceeded), you should not attempt to correct the mistake by withdrawing the excess funds from a Junior ISA (including, but not limited to, your IBUK Stocks and Shares ISA). Instead, you should call HMRC’s ISA helpline to explain the situation and inform them about the oversubscription. HMRC will advise you on the next steps.   NB. The Junior ISA allowance for the tax year 2022/2023 is GBP 9,000 (this is a combined limit across both types of Junior ISA: cash, and stocks and shares).
 
18.   What is the annual fee for the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
There is no annual Junior ISA fee at IBUK. Other costs and charges apply, see below section 19 for more information.
 
19.   What are the charges for the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
£1 per month minimum activity fee.
 
One free withdrawal per month. Thereafter, £7 withdrawal fee is applicable.

20.   How do I transfer my child’s Junior Stocks and Shares ISA from my current ISA manager to IBUK?
 
You will need to submit a transfer instruction to Interactive Brokers (via the transfer & pay funding page in Client Portal), and if, in IBUK’s discretion IBUK decides to accept the transfer, IBUK will instruct your existing ISA manager to transfer the investments (where IBUK supports such investments) and/or cash into your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA. Where IBUK does not support all the investments held at your existing ISA Manager, you can either liquidate these investments yourself prior to submitting your transfer instruction to IBUK via Client Portal (any cash proceeds of such liquidation will be transferred into your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA) or you can instruct IBUK (as part of your transfer instruction via Client Portal) to do so on your behalf. NB. IBUK does not accept the transfer of a Child Trust Fund (CTF) over to a  Junior Stocks and Shares ISA, other Junior ISA providers might support such transfer service.
 
Transfers between an ‘adult’ ISA and Junior ISA are not permitted.
 
21.   How do I transfer a Junior ISA out to another Junior ISA provider?
 
A ISA account transfer to another ISA provider must be requested at the receiving ISA provider. Please contact the ISA provider you wish to have your account transferred and ask them to contact us via email at isa-transfer@interactivebrokers.com (for ISA provider communication only) sending us the client-signed transfer form for processing. Please note your ISA provider may have their own forms and procedures to follow. Please contact them for further information.
 
22.   What are the Transfer Charges?
 
Interactive Brokers does not charge for transfers (the transferring ISA manager may charge you for transferring investments or cash proceeds to us).
 
23.   Can I cancel my IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?

You have a legal right to cancel your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA if you change your mind but there are time limits on doing so, see below section 24 for more information.
 
24.   How can I cancel my child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?
 
If you want to cancel your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA, you must do so within 14 days from the date you receive our email confirming the establishment of your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA (a cancellation must be requested from the Client Portal).
 
Cancellation rights will also apply to the receipt of transfer payments. You have 14 days from the date you receive our email acknowledging the transfer to exercise your right to cancel (a cancellation must be requested from the Client Portal). NB. If you cancel the transfer of your child’s Junior Stocks and Shares ISA from another ISA manager to IBUK, that ISA manager may not agree to accept the Junior Stocks and Shares ISA back. This may result in that Junior Stocks and Shares ISA being closed, and the tax benefits being lost.
 
25.   How safe is your child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?

IBUK is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), and is approved by HMRC to act as an ISA manager (including in respect of stocks and shares ISAs).  

Under our client terms, and in accordance with the FCA rules relating to client money and assets (Assets), IBUK will be responsible for holding and protecting your child’s Assets. IBUK is required to separate your child’s Assets from its own resources. IBUK is not permitted to use your child’s Assets to carry out its business activities.

In the unlikely event that IBUK became insolvent, an administrator would be appointed to return your child’s Assets to you. If there is any shortfall, eligible claims will be covered by the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS is an independent body set up by the UK Government to pay compensation if a UK firm, such as IBUK is in default and cannot meet any valid claims against it.  FSCS claims are limited to £85,000 per client. Please note the FSCS applies to designated investments and may not cover all investments or transactions (and in particular these protections don’t apply to investment losses).  For more information on the FSCS see www.fscs.org.uk.

 
26.   How can I file a complaint with IBUK?
 
Customers are actively encouraged to use the WebTicket system for prompt attention.
 
A copy of our Complaints Procedure is available here: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=292. You can also direct your ISA specific complaints via email to isa@interactivebrokers.co.uk (Please note that in order to ensure that your complaint is flagged and given the required attention, Interactive Brokers kindly asks you to state "COMPLAINT" in the subject header field of the email).
 
27.   Are Corporate Actions allowed under my child’s IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA?

Allowed to participate but cannot exceed the annual Junior ISA subscription limit. If it were to exceed the subscription limit, the shares should be transferred to a non-ISA account (see above sections 17 ‘What should I do if I exceed my child’s Junior ISA allowance?’.
 
28. FX Handling and the IBUK Junior Stocks and Shares ISA
 
Interactive Brokers will automatically convert currencies when trading non-GBP denominated securities. To do this, Interactive Brokers will engage in “spot” currency transactions on your behalf in order to settle your buy orders or convert the proceed of a sell order. Interactive Brokers will base the exchange rate off the spot exchange rate at the time of trade 0.03% fee.

Domande Frequenti: Migrazione del conto da IBLUX al conto limitato presso IBIE

Background: 

Come spiegato in precedenza, Interactive Brokers Luxembourg SARL ("IBLUX") non fornirà servizi di brokeraggio agli investitori e terminerà le proprie operazioni. Nel giugno del 2021 abbiamo invitato i clienti di IBLUX a trasferire i loro conti presso un’altra entità di Interactive Brokers oppure presso una banca o un broker esterno alla famiglia Interactive Brokers. Nonostante le nostre ripetute comunicazioni, non hai intrapreso alcuna decisione per trasferire i tuoi asset detenuti presso il tuo conto IBLUX. Di conseguenza provvederemo a trasferire il tuo conto presso la nostra affiliata Interactive Brokers Ireland Limited ("IBIE") –tramite la procedura detta “Trasferimento” – dove i tuoi asset verranno custoditi fino a quando non riceveremo tue istruzioni relative al trasferimento. Queste Domande Frequenti forniscono informazioni importanti per quanto riguarda il Trasferimento e aspetti di natura legale e normativa emersi a seguito di questa procedura.

1.      Quali conseguenze ci saranno per me a seguito del Trasferimento? Quali sono i termini e le condizioni che regolano la mia relazione con IBIE a seguito del Trasferimento?

 

Una volta completato il trasferimento, il tuo conto IBLUX verrà chiuso e IBIE sarà responsabile per quanto riguarda la custodia in sicurezza dei tuoi asset. Il documento relativo ai termini (disponibile in lingua inglese "Account Terms") regolerà i tuoi conti e i tuoi asset per tutta la durata della loro detenzione in un trust presso IBIE. Non ti sarà possibile piazzare delle transazioni o prendere altre decisioni finanziarie relative al tuo conto e IBIE non fornirà alcun tipo di servizio per l’investimento a meno che tu non abbia firmato il Contratto Clienti IBIE e abbia completato tutti i passaggi necessari per aprire un conto presso IBIE. IBIE ti invierà una e-mail con la descrizione dei vari passaggi per proteggere le tue credenziali di accesso al tuo conto su IBIE.

 

2.      Cosa devo fare per continuare a operare con Interactive Brokers?

 

Se desideri continuare ad operare con Interactive Brokers, ti chiediamo di collaborare e seguire le seguenti indicazioni per fare in modo che IBIE possa offrirti i servizi per l’investimento. Nello specifico ti chiediamo di aprire un nuovo conto presso IBIE e dare il tuo consenso e firmare il Contratto Clienti e qualunque altro documento richiesto.

 

Se non vuoi continuare ad operare con Interactive Brokers, potrai dare istruzioni a IBIE affinché i tuoi asset vengano trasferiti presso un altro broker o un’altra banca. IBIE seguirà le tue istruzioni nel rispetto della normativa vigente.

 

3.      Come verranno custoditi i miei asset presso IBIE??

 

Fino a quando non avrai dato il tuo consenso e accettato il Contratto Clienti e avrai aperto un conto di brokeraggio presso IBIE, la società provvederà dei servizi di custodia limitati a quanto segue:

 

·         per qualunque saldo di liquidità trasferito presso IBIE, avrai diritto all’importo del saldo di liquidità nella valuta di base del tuo conto nel giorno in cui verrà trasferito presso IBIE; IBIE non convertirà il tuo saldo di liquidità in un’altra valuta né pagherà degli interessi sulla liquidità che detiene per conto tuo. 

 

·         per qualunque strumento finanziario trasferito presso IBIE, avrai diritto a quegli strumenti finanziari e IBIE non fornirà alcun tipo di servizio in relazione ai tuoi strumenti finanziari mentre sono in custodia presso IBIE. Ad esempio, IBIE non prenderà alcuna iniziativa per mitigare le perdite derivanti dai movimenti del mercato. Tuttavia, nel caso in cui il tuo conto non abbia sufficienti asset per rispettare i requisiti di margine, IBIE prenderà le decisioni che riterrà più adatte e liquiderà le posizioni, senza emettere una margin call per te; ciò verrà fatto per ristabilire il rispetto dei requisiti di margine. Maggiori informazioni sono disponibili nella risposta 10.

 

Nel caso in cui tu decida di aprire un conto IBIE, e le regole di custodia previste dalla legge irlandese saranno applicate alla tua relazione commerciale con IBIE. Maggiori informazioni sono disponibili nel documento di IBIE dal titolo Client Assets Key Information Document. Così come le regole di custodia del Lussemburgo, le norme del codice di condotta professionale irlandese si basano sul modello della Direttiva Relativa ai Mercati degli Strumenti Finanziari, in base alla Direttiva sull’Regolamentazione dei Mercati Finanziari dell’UE e di altre direttive e regolamenti (collettivamente, "MiFID").

 

4.      Come vengo tutelato da eventuali perdite? Ci saranno differenze di rilievo nel mio futuro rapporto con IBIE rispetto a quello attuale che ho con IBLUX?

 

A seguito del Trasferimento, le norme dell'Ireland Investor Compensation Scheme verranno applicate al tuo conto. Lo schema di compensazione dell’Irlanda è simile allo schema di compensazione al quale hai accesso nel Lussemburgo. Il fine dello Schema di Compensazione degli Investitori d’Irlanda (Irish Investor Compensation Scheme) è quello di pagare compensazioni (entro certi limiti) se hai investito soldi o utilizzato strumenti d’investimento in uno nei seguenti casi:

 

·         Una società fallisce e non può restituire i tuoi soldi o investimenti; e

 

·         Una decisione della Banca Centrale d’Irlanda o una sentenza di un tribunale vengono emesse in applicazione del Investor Compensation Act 1998.

 

Lo schema è gestito dall’Investor Compensation Company DAC (ICCL). IBIE fa parte di questo schema.

 

Lo schema copre prodotti di investimento, inclusi i seguenti:

 

- Azioni di società pubbliche e private

- Quote relative a schemi di investimento collettivi

- Polizze vita (inclusi i fondi “unit-linked”)

- Polizze assicurative diverse da quelle vita

- Conti obbligazionari legati all'andamento di indici azionari (c.d. "tracker bonds")

- Future e opzioni

 

Normalmente è possibile richiedere una compensazione solamente dopo che una società è andata in fallimento ed i suoi asset sono stati liquidati e distribuiti a coloro cui sono dovuti. Ti invitiamo a controllare i dettagli dello schema e dei limiti applicabili - non tutte le perdite sono coperte in quanto vi sono limiti ai livelli di compensazione.  L’ICCL le pagherà una compensazione del 90% sull'importo della perdita subita, fino ad un massimo di 20,000 euro.

 

5.      Come posso inoltrare un reclamo a IBIE? Cosa devo fare se il mio reclamo si riferisce a qualcosa che è accaduto quando ero un cliente di IBLUX?

 

Le procedure sono sostanzialmente simili a quelle che si applicano al tuo attuale rapporto con IBLUX. Tuttavia l’ampiezza delle norme relativa ai reclami è più limitata in quanto i servizi forniti sono ristretti alla sola custodia degli asset affidati a noi fino alla ricezione delle istruzioni di trasferimento oppure fino a quando non diventerai un cliente di IBIE a tutti gli effetti. Tutti i reclami formali dovrebbero essere fatti in una delle seguenti modalità: (i) tramite WebTicket nella Gestione Conto sul sito web di IBIE; (ii) tramite una lettera inviata al seguente indirizzo: Complaints Handling, Compliance Department, IBIE Dublin Landings, North Wall Quay, North Dock, Dublin 1, Ireland; in alternativa (iii) tramite email a questo indirizzo: complaints@interactivebrokers.ie.

 

Nel caso in cui l'oggetto del reclamo faccia riferimento a fatti avvenuti prima del Trasferimento, allora dovrai inoltrare il reclamo presso IBLUX. 

 

6.      A seguito del Trasferimento, avrò ancora accesso al CSSF per sporgere un reclamo?

 

Nel caso di un reclamo, gli investitori saranno tenuti a seguire le procedure di reclamo definite nel Contratto Clienti. Una volta che il Trasferimento avrà avuto luogo, il CSSF cesserà di avere giurisdizione su ogni reclamo che tu possa avere nei riguardi di IBLUX. Ti ricordiamo tuttavia che l’Irlanda ha uno schema di risoluzione delle dispute anche noto come Financial Services and Pensions Ombudsman (“FSPO”). L’FSPO è un organismo libero e indipendente per la risoluzione di dispute legate ai servizi finanziari. Potresti avere i requisiti per sporgere un reclamo presso FSPO se verrà considerato “ricorrente idoneo”. Maggiori informazioni sui criteri di questa figura sono disponibili presso il sito www.fspo.ie. Di seguito i contatti per l’FSPO:

7.      Come saranno gestiti e protetti i miei dati personali? Ci sono differenze di rilievo nel mio rapporto con IBIE rispetto al mio attuale rapporto con IBLUX in questo contesto?

 

I tuoi dati saranno trattati e protetti ai sensi della Politica sulla Privacy del Gruppo Interactive Brokers. Maggiori dettagli sono disponibili a questo indirizzo: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=305. Non vi saranno cambiamenti sostanziali rispetto al rapporto che hai al momento.

 

8.      La gamma dei servizi offerti rimarrà la stessa?

La commissione mensile potrà in qualunque momento essere modificata a discrezione di IBIE a seguito di notifiche che potranno essere comunicate tramite il sito web di IBIE.

Domande Frequenti: Migrazione del conto da IBLUX al conto limitato presso IBCE

Background: 

Come spiegato in precedenza, Interactive Brokers Luxembourg SARL ("IBLUX") non fornirà servizi di brokeraggio agli investitori e terminerà le proprie operazioni. Nel giugno del 2021 abbiamo invitato i clienti di IBLUX a trasferire i loro conti presso un’altra entità di Interactive Brokers oppure presso una banca o un broker esterno alla famiglia Interactive Brokers. Nonostante le nostre ripetute comunicazioni, non hai intrapreso alcuna decisione per trasferire i tuoi asset detenuti presso il tuo conto IBLUX. Di conseguenza provvederemo a trasferire il tuo conto presso la nostra affiliata Interactive Brokers Central Europe Zrt (IBCE") –tramite la procedura detta “Trasferimento” – dove i tuoi asset verranno custoditi fino a quando non riceveremo tue istruzioni relative al trasferimento. Queste Domande Frequenti forniscono informazioni importanti per quanto riguarda il Trasferimento e aspetti di natura legale e normativa emersi a seguito di questa procedura.

1.      Quali conseguenze ci saranno per me a seguito del Trasferimento? Quali sono i termini e le condizioni che regolano la mia relazione con IBIE a seguito del Trasferimento?

 

A seguito del Trasferimento, IBCE sarà responsabile della custodia in sicurezza dei tuoi asset. Il documento, disponibile in lingua inglese, dal titolo General Business Terms di IBCE [https://gdcdyn.interactivebrokers.com/Universal/servlet/Registration_v2.formSampleView?formdb=4500] (d’ora in avanti "GBR") regolerà i tuoi conti e i tuoi asset fino a quando questi saranno in custodia in un trust presso IBCE. Non ti sarà possibile piazzare delle transazioni o prendere altre decisioni finanziarie relative al tuo conto e IBCE non fornirà alcun tipo di servizio per l’investimento fino a quando non darai il consenso ai termini del GBR e avrai firmato il Contratto Clienti. IBCE ti invierà una email a seguito del Trasferimento con i passaggi per proteggere le tue credenziali di accesso al tuo conto presso IBCE.

 

2.      Cosa devo fare per continuare a operare con Interactive Brokers?

 

Se desideri continuare ad operare con Interactive Brokers, ti chiediamo di collaborare e seguire le seguenti indicazioni per fare in modo che IBCE possa offrirti i servizi per l’investimento. Nello specifico ti chiediamo di aprire un nuovo conto presso IBCE, e dare il tuo consenso ai termini del documento GBR e firmare il Contratto Clienti e qualunque altro documento richiesto ed infine fornire tutti i documenti o le informazioni richieste.

 

Se non vuoi continuare ad operare con Interactive Brokers potrai dare istruzioni a IBCE affinché i tuoi asset vengano trasferiti presso un altro broker o un’altra banca. IBCE seguirà le tue istruzioni nel rispetto della normativa vigente.

 

3.      Come verranno custoditi i miei asset presso IBCE?

 

Fino a quando non avrai preso atto e accettato i termini del GBR e del Contratto Clienti e successivamente avrai aperto un conto di brokeraggio con IBCE, IBCE offrirà alcuni servizi in modalità limitata:

 

·         per qualunque saldo di liquidità trasferito presso IBCE, avrai diritto all’importo del saldo di liquidità nella valuta di base del tuo conto nel giorno in cui verrà trasferito presso IBCE; IBCE non convertirà il tuo saldo di liquidità in un’altra valuta né pagherà degli interessi sulla liquidità che detiene per conto tuo. 

 

·         per qualunque strumento finanziario trasferito presso IBCE, avrai diritto a quegli strumenti finanziari e IBCE non fornirà alcun tipo di servizio in relazione ai tuoi strumenti finanziari mentre sono in custodia presso IBCE. Ad esempio, IBCE non prenderà alcuna iniziativa per mitigare le perdite derivanti dai movimenti del mercato. Tuttavia, nel caso in cui il tuo conto non abbia sufficienti asset per rispettare i requisiti di margine, IBCE prenderà le decisioni che riterrà più adatte e liquiderà le posizioni, senza emettere una margin call per te; ciò verrà fatto per ristabilire il rispetto dei requisiti di margine. Maggiori informazioni sono disponibili nella risposta 10.

 

Nel caso in cui tu decida di aprire un conto IBCE, e le regole di custodia previste dalla legge ungherese saranno applicate alla tua relazione commerciale con IBCE. Così come per le regole di custodia del Lussemburgo, le norme del codice di condotta professionale ungherese si basano sul modello della Direttiva Relativa ai Mercati degli Strumenti Finanziari, in base alla Direttiva sull’Regolamentazione dei Mercati Finanziari dell’UE e di altre direttive e regolamenti (collettivamente “MiFID”).

 

4.      Come vengo tutelato da eventuali perdite?

In base alla normativa CXX del 2001 sul Mercato dei capitali, il Fondo di Protezione degli Investitori dell’Ungheria potrebbe proteggere i tuoi asset da perdite fino ad un importo massimo di EUR 100,000 nel caso in cui IBIE vada in default e non sia in grado di rispettare i suoi obblighi nei tuoi confronti. Per avere l'idoneità e quindi la protezione del Fondo dovrai avere un rapporto contrattuale con IBCE.

La compensazione fornita dal Hungarian Investor Protection Fund copre i reclami sorti da contratti stipulati con l'accordo di IBCE per servizi di broker, custodia dei titoli, gestione di conti con titoli, e infine gestione di attività dei conti di clienti eseguiti da IBCE.

Lo schema di compensazione dell’Ungheria è simile allo schema di compensazione al quale hai accesso nel Lussemburgo. Lo scopo del Fondo è quello di fornire compensazione nei seguenti casi:

·     la Banca Centrale d'Ungheria dia l'avvio al processo di liquidazione di IBCE, oppure

·     un'ordinanza emessa da un tribunale stabilisca la liquidazione di IBCE. 

 

IBCE è membro del Hungarian Investor Protection Fund (vedi https://bva.hu/en/ipf/ipf-members/). 

Una volta appurata la tua idoneità, potrai richiedere una compensazione solamente dopo che una società è andata in fallimento ed i suoi asset sono stati liquidati e distribuiti ai debitori. Ti invitiamo a controllare i dettagli dello schema e dei limiti applicabili - non tutte le perdite sono coperte in quanto vi sono limiti ai livelli di compensazione.   Il Fondo potrà rimborsare fino a 100,000 EUR della somma da te investita.

L'ammontare della somma pagata dal Fondo sarà:

·     Il 100% dell’investimento per un limite equivalente a 1 milione di fiorini (al 5 settembre 2021 la cifra corrisponde a 2,805 EUR),

·     Per cifre superiori a 1 milione di fiorini: 1 milione di fiorini e il 90% della parte superiore al limite di 1 milione di fiorini fino ad un massimo di 100,000 EUR.

 

5.      Come posso inoltrare un reclamo a IBCE? Cosa devo fare se il mio reclamo si riferisce a qualcosa che è accaduto quando ero un cliente di IBLUX?

 

Il documento GBR stabilisce come sporgere un reclamo presso IBCE. Il documento GBR stabilisce come sporgere un reclamo presso IBCE. Le procedure sono sostanzialmente simili a quelle che si applicano al tuo attuale rapporto con IBLUX. Tuttavia l’ampiezza delle norme relativa ai reclami è più limitata in quanto i servizi forniti sono ristretti alla sola custodia degli asset affidati a noi fino alla ricezione delle istruzioni di trasferimento.

 

Nel caso in cui l'oggetto del reclamo faccia riferimento a fatti avvenuti prima del Trasferimento, allora dovrai inoltrare il reclamo presso IBLUX. 

 

6.      A seguito del Trasferimento, avrò ancora accesso al CSSF per sporgere un reclamo?

Nel caso di un reclamo, gli investitori saranno tenuti a seguire le procedure di reclamo definite nel Contratto Clienti. Una volta che il Trasferimento avrà avuto luogo, il CSSF cesserà di avere giurisdizione su ogni reclamo che tu possa avere nei riguardi di IBLUX. Ti ricordiamo tuttavia che l’Ungheria ha uno schema di risoluzione delle controversie gestito dalla Banca Centrale d’Ungheria noto in inglese come Financial Arbitration Board ("FAB"). La FAB è un organismo libero e indipendente per la risoluzione di controversie legate ai servizi finanziari. Potresti avere i requisiti per sporgere un reclamo presso la FAB se verrà considerato cliente retail.  Maggiori dettagli sulla FAB sono disponibili a questa pagina: https://www.mnb.hu/en/hungarian-financial-arbitration-board

 È possibile contattare la FAB utilizzando i seguenti contatti:

7.      Come saranno gestiti e protetti i miei dati personali? Ci sono differenze di rilievo nel mio rapporto con IBCE rispetto al mio attuale rapporto con IBLUX in questo contesto?

 

I tuoi dati saranno trattati e protetti ai sensi della Politica sulla Privacy del Gruppo Interactive Brokers. Maggiori dettagli sono disponibili a questo indirizzo: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=305. Non vi saranno cambiamenti sostanziali rispetto al rapporto che hai al momento.

 

 

8.      La gamma dei servizi offerti rimarrà la stessa?

Di conseguenza i servizi sono ristretti alla sola detenzione dei tuoi asset e, ove applicabile, al mantenimento dei requisiti di margine.

 

9.      Avete liquidato alcune o tutte le posizioni presenti nel mio conto per facilitare il Trasferimento?

 

Come descritto in precedenza, in molti casi abbiamo liquidato alcune o tutte le posizioni nei conti dei nostri clienti convertendoli nella valuta base del conto per facilitare il Trasferimento verso IBCE. Per le posizioni rimanenti, le risposte alle domande 10-11 forniscono maggiori dettagli su come vengono trasferiti e custoditi presso IBCE.

 

10.  Ho un conto a margine. I termini relative al margine per quanto riguarda il mio conto saranno differenti a seguito del Trasferimento verso IBCE?

 

No. I tuoi obblighi e responsabilità rispetto al tuo conto a margine e il trading a margine a seguito del Trasferimento resteranno identici a quelli che avevi presso IBLUX. Tuttavia, in base ai termini attuali del conto, non sarai in grado di operare liberamente e questo include l’apertura di nuove posizioni, a meno che tu non diventi un cliente di IBCE a tutti gli effetti.

 

Ti invitiamo a consultare le disposizioni relative al margine nel Contratto Clienti IBCE [https://gdcdyn.interactivebrokers.com/Universal/servlet/Registration_v2.formSampleView?formdb=4501]. Tali disposizioni di fatto si applicano al tuo conto e ai tuoi asset mentre saranno in custodia fiduciaria presso IBCE.

Dove necessario, per facilitare il Trasferimento, abbiamo convertito i saldi di liquidità long in altre valute rispetto alle “Valute autorizzate per versamenti” prima della migrazione del conto.

 

Nel rispetto di quanto stabilito dalle regole sulla protezione degli asset in Ungheria, i fondi dei clienti devono essere protetti nella stessa forma nella quale sono stati ricevuti dal broker.  Questa norma è in contrasto con il tuo precedente broker (ossia IBLUX) le cui norme sulla protezione degli asset consentivano la protezione di fondi nel valore equivalente seppure in una valuta differente.  I saldi short in altre valute non subiranno cambiamenti.  

 

Tutti i saldi di liquidità verranno trasferiti nello stesso momento e il tuo conto con IBLUX verrà chiuso e non sarà più possibile accedere al conto per fare trading.

La commissione mensile potrà in qualunque momento essere modificata a discrezione di IBCE a seguito di notifiche che potranno essere comunicate tramite il sito web di IBCE.

 

Inoltre IBCE non pagherà interessi ai propri clienti ma richiederà il pagamento di interessi in base ai tassi d'interesse fissati sui saldi di credito e quelli di debito in base a quanto illustrato sul sito web di IBCE.

Ti ricordiamo che nel caso in cui il saldo di liquidità non sia sufficiente, IBCE potrà liquidare i tuoi asset nello stesso modo in cui IBLUX avrebbe agito prima del Trasferimento.

 

14.  Cosa fare nel caso di ulteriori domande su cosa cambierà e cosa resterà identico dopo il Trasferimento?
