Information regarding the transfer of accounts from IB LLC to IB Australia


Following the establishment of Interactive Brokers Australia Pty Ltd (IB Australia), who holds an Australian Financial Services License, number 453554, Australian residents maintaining an account with Interactive Brokers LLC (IB LLC) will have their account transferred to IB Australia as IB LLC intends to cease business in Australia. Outlined below are the steps required to initiate the transfer and information regarding the account holder's relationship with IB Australia following the transfer.

How To Transfer Your Account To IB Australia

Moving your account to IB Australia is easy. The process is simple because we will use the information and documents we already have on file for you. The transfer process is initiated once you sign the online authorization form. This form will be presented to you immediately upon log in to Account Management.  Once the form has been signed your account will be scheduled for transfer, with the transfer typically taking effect over the following weekend (with consideration given to weekend which coincide with option expiration processing).

We encourage you to complete the application to transfer to IB Australia as soon as possible and before the 30 November 2017 close of business.

Products offered by IB Australia

As a client of IB Australia, you will continue to be able to trade all of the exchange traded products you currently have access to (including local and global stocks, bonds, options, futures, etc.) through Interactive Brokers’ award winning trading platform and software. For further information on IB Australia's products and services, please see our website.

Client Money Considerations

Transfer Of Money From IB LLC To IB Australia: IB LLC and IB Australia are separate legal companies. When you complete the application to transfer your account to IB Australia, you will be directing IB LLC to close your account, transfer your positions, and pay to IB Australia all of the cash currently in your account. Upon receiving these funds, IB Australia will pay the funds into an IB Australia Client Money Account (discussed in more detail below). The actual transfer will occur as soon as practicable following the opening of your account with IB Australia.

Money To Be Held On Trust By IB Australia: IB Australia is required to handle all money that it receives from you or on your behalf in accordance with Part 7.8 of the Corporations Act. In other words, IB Australia is required to maintain one or more trust/segregated client money accounts (Client Money Accounts) with a bank for the holding of monies it receives for or from its clients. This money is held on trust for IB Australia's clients. IB Australia will initially only hold client money in Australian dollars (AUD) and U.S. dollars (USD).

Conversion Or Withdrawal Of Non-AUD And Non-USD Balances Before Transfer: If you have cash balances in currencies other than AUD or USD, these will need to be converted into AUD or USD prior to the transfer of your account to IB Australia. If you wish to convert other currencies to AUD or USD yourself before the transfer occurs, you can do so through your current account with IB LLC. There will only be a limited window for you to perform this conversion.

You will be given a choice in the IB Australia application process as to whether you would like cash balances in currencies other than AUD or USD to be converted into AUD or USD. Any such balances that you do NOT convert to AUD or USD yourself before the transfer occurs, will be automatically converted by IB Australia into USD prior to the transfer of your account. The exchange rate that will apply to such a conversion will be the best rate that is reasonably available to IB LLC through its existing liquidity providers when it performs the conversion.

Client Assets And Positions – Transition
When you transfer your account to IB Australia, IB Australia will be your service provider, not IB LLC. When you trade through your IB Australia account, IB Australia will execute Australian market transactions for you, and will arrange for offshore brokers to execute transactions in offshore markets, including IB LLC and other Interactive Broker Group affiliates, as appropriate. In those markets, the offshore brokers will treat IB Australia as their client (and IB Australia will operate omnibus client accounts with those brokers to cover transactions for IB Australia's clients).

IB Australia will replace IB LLC as your custodian. IB Australia will hold all assets that you purchase through IB Australia on your behalf subject to IB Australia’s General Terms, which are available here.

Please refer to IB Australia’s Financial Services Guide, which provides important information about the custody services that IB Australia provides and the sub-custodians that IB Australia uses.

The following is a brief summary of the asset and position holding arrangements going forward:

Assets/Positions Past IB LLC Arrangement Future IB Australia
Australian securities IB LLC as custodian (and ABN Amro Clearing as sub-custodian
and clearing participant)
IB Australia as custodian and BNP Paribas Securities Services (as sub-custodian and clearing
Foreign securities Foreign sub-custodian (including IB LLC affiliates) IB Australia as custodian and IB

FX positions Contract with IB LLC Contract with IB Australia

When you agree to transfer your account to IB Australia, you will be instructing and authorising IB Australia and IB LLC to do all things reasonably required to facilitate the transfer of all assets and positions from your IB LLC account to your new IB Australia account, including to amend their books and records to reflect the transition, and to give appropriate instructions and directions to sub-custodians, clearing participants and other external providers.

What If I Choose Not To Transfer My Account To IB Australia or Don't Act?
You are not required to transfer your account to IB Australia but would need to close or transfer it prior to the 30, November 2017 close of business as IB LLC intends to cease providing financial services in Australia as of that date. This means IB LLC will cease offering financial services and products to Australian residents, including you. This will impact you as follows:

If your account remains open and you have not opened a new account with IB Australia before the end of November, then, IB LLC (U.S.) will under the terms of its Customer Agreement with you, impose trading restrictions on your account, including prohibiting you from opening new positions and transfer your account to IB Australia. 

What Happens When IB LLC (U.S.) Transfers My Account To IB Australia?

Please note the following information is only relevant if you do not apply to transfer your Account(s) to IB Australia prior to the end of November 2017. 

If you have NOT applied to transfer your account(s) to IB Australia, then, IB LLC (U.S.) will be forced to assign your account(s) to IB Australia. When this happens, IB Australia will be holding your account under the same agreement that you held the account with IB LLC (U.S.).  

You will be prohibited from opening new positions until you accept the legal terms that govern and the disclosures that relate to IB Australia’s account offering; you can, however, apply to withdraw your funds and transfer positions to 3rd party brokers.  

Please also note the following:

  • If the base currency of your IB LLC (U.S.)  is other than AUD or USD, we will default the base currency of the account prior to the transfer to IB Australia to AUD; Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
  • Any currency balances currently held that are not denominated in either AUD or USD will be converted into your Base Currency at the prevailing exchange rate; and,
  • If you close any open positions after the transfer and the settlement proceeds (if any) are in a currency other than AUD or USD, IB Australia will convert the proceeds into the base currency of your account.
  •  If, at a later date, you still have not accepted IB Australia’s new legal terms and disclosures, then IB Australia may transfer out positions into issuer sponsored holdings (where it deems reasonable to do so) and liquidate any other open positions that you hold in the account and return the resulting funds to you. IB Australia will provide you notice should we decide to take this action.


  • For a full list of the disclosure documents and legal terms which govern the services IB Australia will make available please refer to the IB website.

FATCA Procedures - Grantor Trust Tax Information Submission

This guide contains instructions for a Trust to complete the online tax information and to electronically submit a W-9 or W-8BEN.


U.S. Tax Classification

Your U.S. income tax classification determines the tax form(s) required to document the account.

You must login to Account Management with the trust's primary username to access the Tax Form Collection page.

1.      Tax Form Collection

Confirm the primary tax residency of the trust beside the Tax Residency question, "In what country is the trust a resident for tax purposes?"  Select the appropriate country in the drop down menu.
Select in the Tax Residency drop down menu the applicable country.
d. Click Continue.

2.      Classification for US Tax Purposes

Confirming the Trust’s classification for U.S. purposes

c. Click the Continue button to identify each Grantor. 

3.      Identify Grantors

Also, update the "Percentage of Ownership" to add up to 100%, if necessary.
c. Enter the required fields for the username and password for specified grantor and click the Continue button to complete the email delivery of the link.
We will then send the owner a link to complete the necessary tax form. This link will only be used for the collection of tax forms. You must provide the username and password to the Grantor as link will not contain them.   
Each Grantor must login with the username/password created and complete the pending tasks by going to Manage Account > Account Information > Tax Information > Tax Forms  > Update Tax Forms.
d. Click the Continue button upon creating and sending usernames to each Grantor.

Please consult your tax professional if you are unsure how to complete.

Can I have more than two individuals on a joint account?

IB offers three types of joint accounts: Tenants with Rights of Suvivorship, Tenancy in Common and Community Property. Each of these joint account types is limited to two account holders.

Applicants interested in opening an account with muliple owners in excess of two may consider the corporate, partnrship, limited liability company or unincorporated legal structure account types offered by IB.  Note that documentation establishing proof of formation and address are generally required at the point of application.

Converting From a Single to Joint Account

The process of adding a second owner to an existing single account for purposes of converting to a joint account is outlined below:

1.       As the joint account structure differs from that of the individual in terms of account holder information required, legal agreements and, in certain cases, taxpayer status, direct conversion is not supported and a new joint account application must be completed online.
The joint application may be initiated online from the single account by logging into Account Management and clicking the Settings and Account Settings options followed by clicking the gear icon next to the words "Create, Move, LInk or Partition an Account" in the Configuration section. This process will allow you to retain your existing user name, password and security device for purposes of operating the joint account. Be sure to request trading permissions and, if necessary, margin status, sufficient to maintain the positions currently carried in your individual account.  Note that if your account is managed by a financial advisor or you are a client of an introducing broker, please contact your advisor or broker to initiate the new application (you may need to make arrangments with your advisor or broker for fees that have accrued but not yet paid if the individual account closes).
The joint account application requires Compliance review and approval and documentation evidencing the identity and address of the second account holder may be required. If this is the case, notice as to the required documents and how to submit will be provided at the conclusion of the online application.
2.       Once you have received an email confirming approval of the joint account application, send a request from your Message Center authorizing IB to manually transfer positions from your single to joint account. Prior to submitting the request you should make sure to close all open orders in the individual account to ensure that no executions take place following the transfer.
Due to the manual steps and scheduling required, you should allow a minimum of one week after joint account approval and submitting your request for the transfer to take effect. 


1.       Note that exchange regulations preclude ownership transfer of derivative contracts such as futures and options. If you are holding such positions you would either need to close them prior to the transfer taking place or request that they remain in your individual account.
2.       Prior to processing the transfer, you should make sure to close all open orders in the individual account to ensure that no executions take place following the transfer.
3.       The SMA (Special Memorandum Account) balance in your individual account will not transfer to the joint account. In certain cases this may impact your ability to open new positions in the joint account on the first day after the transfer is completed.
4.       Elective options such as market data subscriptions and participation in IB's Yield Enhancement Program will not be carried over to the joint account and must be reinitiated to continue.
5.       The cost basis of transferred positions as reported in the activity statements will remain unchanged for tax purposes.  The cost basis as reported in your trading platform (which is not used for tax reporting purposes) will not transfer over to the joint account but may be manually adjusted.
6.       Once the transfer has been completed and assuming all positions have been transferred your individual account will be designated for automatic closure. Note that certain balances such as dividend accruals can’t be transferred until paid, after which they will then be transferred and your individual account closed.
7.       You receive any applicable tax forms for the reportable activity transacted in each of your individual and joint accounts at year end. Access to Account Management for you individual account will remain after it has been closed for the purpose of reviewing and printing activity statements and tax forms.
8.       IB does not provide tax advice or investment guidance and recommends that account holder consult with qualified professionals to determine any legal, tax or estate planning consequences associated with single to joint transfer requests.

Fragebogen zum „Non-Professional“-Status für Marktdatenabonnements


Informationen zur Vervollständigung des neuen Non-Professional-Fragebogens.


Die NYSE und auch die meisten anderen US-Börsen verlangen, dass Anbieter den Marktdaten-Abonnentenstatus jedes Kunden aktiv überprüfen und bestätigen, bevor der Bezug von Marktdaten gestattet wird. Zukünftig wird der Non-Professional-Fragebogen zur Feststellung und aktiven Bestätigung des Marktdaten-Abonnentenstatus aller Abonnementkunden verwendet. Gemäß Börsenvorschriften wird, wenn keine explizite Identifikation des Kunden als Non-Professional erfolgt ist, der Status „Professional“ als standardmäßiger Abonnentenstatus für den Bezug von Marktdaten verwendet. Durch diesen Prozess wird der korrekte Abonnentenstatus aller neuen Marktdatenabonnenten geschützt und verwaltet. Einen kurzen Leitfaden zur Definition der Statusbezeichnungen Professional/Non-Professional finden Sie in folgendem Artikel:

Die Statusbezeichnung „Non-Professional“ kann nur verliehen werden, wenn sämtliche Fragen dieses Fragebogens beantwortet wurden. Da die Börsen eine aktive Bestätigung als Nachweis für die Einstufung als Non-Professional voraussetzen, ist ein unvollständig oder uneindeutig ausgefüllter Non-Professional-Fragebogen nicht ausreichend und führt zu einer Einstufung als Professional-Abonnent, bis der tatsächliche Status in ausreichender Klarheit nachgewiesen wird. 

Falls sich Ihr Status ändern sollte, kontaktieren Sie bitte das Helpdesk.
