When it comes to processing times for stock transfers, Daffy is a reliable and efficient platform. The processing time for a stock transfer typically takes 7-10 days from the time you schedule your transfer with your brokerage. This is a standard processing time, and Daffy always strives to provide you with an accurate estimate of when your transactions will be completed.
As a Daffy member, you have the ability to make irrevocable contributions of nearly all publicly traded stock. All stock is liquidated upon receipt, and the balance is added to your Daffy account as soon as it is available. To ensure that your stock contribution is attributed to your account quickly, you must create a stock contribution intent first. This can be done easily through the Daffy app or website.
Moreover, Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). DAF transfers also take 7-10 days from scheduling your transfer with your brokerage. This makes Daffy a convenient and efficient platform for managing your charitable donations.
In addition to its efficiency, Daffy also offers a way to avoid capital gains taxes. When you donate stock, the IRS has different rules for tax purposes. This means you can spread donations over the year and give appreciated stock, thereby avoiding formidable taxes that can be incurred if you've held your stock for less than a year.
In conclusion, whether you're looking to transfer stock or manage a DAF, Daffy provides a reliable, efficient, and tax-friendly platform.
