How to record CGT Notional Deferred Gain & CGT Relief Cost Base Adjustment
Scenario: A parcel of 1,200 units of SCP shares was acquired on 1/6/2016 with original book cost of $20,000. The share has undergone CGT relief on 30/6/2017 with a market value of $34,464 as at 30 June 2017. As a result of the CGT relief, the CGT date was reset to 30/6/2017 and the CGT cost base was uplifted to $34,464. The notional deferred gain amount is $1,928.53 on net basis, i.e. after the 1/3 discount and ECPI exemption.
Please find below information to be recorded in the loader to transition the fund onto Class with book closed date of 30/6/2017.
Step 1: Record the acquisition details on the Acquisition tab as follows:
Step 2: Record the CGT relief information on the Adjustments tab. The notional deferred gain amount of $1,928.53 is to be recorded using the CGTNotionalDeferredGain adjustment type. To reflect the relect the tax cost base, work out the difference between the tax cost and accounting cost, i.e. $14,464 = $34,464 - $20,000. Record $14,464 using the CGTReliefCostBaseAdjustment adjustment type.
This is how it will look like on the Holding Balances tab. The implied tax cost base is therefore $20,000 + $14,464 = $34,464.
