The premium received per entitlement is $3.10. See NAB ASX Announcement - Retail Shortfall Bookbuild.

The trustees have exercised the Entitlement


In this scenario, the fund held 1000 NAB shares as at 12 May 2015.

Therefore, the fund is entitled to 80 new shares (1000/25 x 2).

Go to Accounting | Transaction List and process a purchase transaction for the new 77600/NAB shares at the discounted price.

  • Option B - Treated as Unfranked Dividend or Other Income

  1. Process a purchase of the Entitlements with a cost base of $0. Note:The Contract Date should changed to the Original Parcel date for CGT Discount to apply. 

     2. Sell the rights for the amount received

The transactions will be similar to Option 2.

 

Option B - Treated as Unfranked Dividend or Other Income

If the tax treatment in ATO Taxation Ruling 2012/1 should be applied,  you can record the premium as either an unfranked dividend or other income.
