Calculating Cost Base For Australian Capital Gains Tax Purposes
Following the stapling restructure implemented on 22 November 2018, for Australian Capital Gains Tax (CGT) purposes, each Infigen Energy stapled security is considered to comprise two separate CGT assets being a share in IEL and a unit in IET. If you dispose of any part of your investment in Infigen Energy, you will need to do a separate CGT calculation for each of your respective investments in IEL and IET.
This means that technically you will need to apportion your acquisition cost and your sales proceeds between the shares in IEL and the units in IET. However, in most cases the aggregate of the two separate calculations will produce the same net result as if the disposal were treated as the disposal of a single asset.
The apportionments must be done on a reasonable basis. The information below is provided to assist you in performing the apportionments.
Note that prior to implementation of the stapling restructure on 22 November 2018, Infigen Energy stapled securities comprised three components: a share in IEL, a unit in IET and a share in Infigen Energy (Bermuda) Limited. Further information regarding the stapling restructure was included in the AGM Notice of Meeting, dated 8 October 2018.
