Renounceable rights generally offer the SMSF three options on what to do with the rights. They can act on the rights, sell the rights on market or let the rights lapse.
- Prior to the exercising/sale/lapse of the Rights, the Rights account and the number of Rights can be created via the Corporate Actions screen using the Renounceable Rights Issue Corporate Action type (see below).
- When the Rights are actioned, refer to Renounceable Rights Issue Exercised/Lapsed.
How to Process
- From the Corporate Actions screen, view the Type column. Confirm Renounceable Rights Issue appears under the column before proceeding.
- Select Process under the Action column.
- The Security will be automatically selected.
- Renounceable Rights Issue will display as the Corporate Actions Type.
- The Ex / Balance Date (the Corporate Action Ex Date) and the Corporate Action Date (Transaction Date) will be selected. Simple Fund 360 will create a purchase transaction in the Transaction List.
Select the Rights Issue Account.
If the Rights account does not exist you will receive a warning. The code appearing in the warning is the ASX code which you can search for when adding the account to the Chart.
If the account is not appearing, select Add New Investment. A new tab will open and you can search for the Rights code to attach to the correct security. Once the investment is saved to the Chart of Accounts refresh the original Corporate Action tab and search for the newly added account.
- The number of Rights issued will display.
- Input the Amount Paid for the Rights. Currently this amount is recorded manually and will default to $0.
- Select Process Corporate Action once all information has been input.
- The Rights Issue will be posted to the ledger as a single line transaction unless an amount was paid for the Rights in which the following will be recorded:
DR 77600/DOWR.AX $XX
CR 94910 (Investment Data Clearing Account) $XX
- The Investment Data Clearing Account 94910 will need to be cleared against the bank via the Transaction List.
- These Rights will be held by the fund. If they are actioned/sold/lapsed refer to Renounceable Rights Issue Exercised/Lapsed.
