Thanks for the reply Skate.
share-trade-tracker looks very interesting. Sort of like my spreadsheet on steroids. Looking at their site, I can try it for $19.00 for 1 month, then if I want to continue, change the plan to $9.00 per month on an annual plan.

Don't forget to pop into my 'Dump it here' thread I've made all my posts with you in mind.
Check it out, I've found no better.
I could have missed your question & if you need to ask another may I suggest using my user name as in @Skate as I will get an alert from you.
I ended up using BGL simple fund, then found out what accountants used the software, and used an accountant nearby.
But that isn't a recommendation, just what I did, do your own research and find what fits with you.
sptrawler, thanks for the reply.
My SMSF, of less than $1.6 Million, in pension phase, has its bank account and stock brokers trading accounts and most TD accounts already linked to the SMSF administrator( I guess like the BGL simple fund). This way, my SMSF Administrators automatically see all buy/sell actions, dividends and interest. I submit all stock distributions end of year tax inputs. I confirm I took the required pension funds to satisfy the ATO. The SMSF administrator appoints an Auditor, who do their thing. The Administrator submits the SMSF tax return. That's about it. The SMSF Administrator advises me they do not need to see any of my 'reports'.
Looking at my spreadsheet results, compared to the portfolio manager I am presently using, and my Stock Brokers profit and loss report, I usually see three very different results, as they all use different formula depending on more than one parcel purchased and if sales involved.
My spreadsheet simply indicates parcel buys and sells, plus dividends, plus franking credits to give me my 'simplified' result...see attached pic.
Support & service is excellent, with automatic updates you are always current with the changing environment.

I am also looking for some sort of portfolio manager. I recently found https://www.stockportfolioorganizer.com/ but have not had much of a chance to play with it. Does anyone have any experience with it?
Skate, is the share trade tracker spreadsheet able to reduce the cost base using the tax deferred component of trust distributions? Also is it able to compute the return with dividends etc? I can't find that information on their website. Most of my trades are fairly long term so I need to deal with dividends and trust distributions fairly often.
