Capital Losses 2011/2012

 

THIS WEBPAGE APPLIES TO THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2012. IT MAY BE USEFUL IN PREPARING TAX RETURNS FOR THAT YEAR. IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE "STATUS FOR TAX YEAR 2012/13."

 

Shareholders and their advisers should read this web page if they are interested in the availability of tax losses in 2011/12.

deListed monitors distressed and failed companies constantly and is uniquely qualified and licensed (Australian Financial Services License 334036) to provide this specialised service.

We cover below the securities of companies suspended from quotation, delisted, unlisted and/or in external administration. We will acquire such securities in a valid "arms length" transaction if you wish to realise your loss for capital gains tax purposes.

If you are unable to find your company in one or other of the schedules below, even though it is suspended from quotation, please email us to admin@delisted.com.au with the full and exact name and code of your company.

There are four categories of capital loss companies in 2011/12:

 We recommend shareholders consider disposing of their securities in the above companies, which they can do so quickly and simply at "Sell your worthless shares". The alternative is to wait until the company is deregistered before claiming the loss, but you should be aware that deregistration may not occur for many years.

 


 3. Worthless share companies 2011-12
         (please scroll down list)

This is the ninth year we have prepared a list of capital loss companies. Each year it is provided here and circulated to stockbrokers, fund managers, investors and others, Australia-wide. This year we have reviewed the financial position of about 200 relevant companies in order to produce the following list. Please scroll down to check if your company is on the list.

Company Code Exch Status

 

Securities in the above companies are of little, if any, value in our view. The crystallisation of a capital loss usually makes good economic sense and we suggest shareholders consider disposing of their securities in these companies, which they can do so quickly and simply at "Sell your worthless shares".

 

 

4. Securities of Value

There are a few companies, delisted or suspended from quotation, where we believe the shares to be of value. You may register details of your shareholding with us and we may subsequently offer to buy it. To our knowledge, these securities were previously quoted on an Australian stock exchange and are now no longer quoted. Please scroll down to check if your company is on the list.

Company Code Exch Status

 

Securities in the above companies are no longer quoted but may be of some value in our view. You may sell these securities here to immediately crystallise a capital loss "Sell your worthless shares" or you may register details of your shareholding here "Register securities of value" in which event your loss will be crystallised only if and when sale takes place and the appropriate documentation is executed.

 

 

5. Other Companies 

If your company has failed or is delisted or suspended from quotation and does not feature in any of the above categories it is likely that:

• The company has been deregistered and the capital loss can be claimed, providing of course it has not previously been claimed. (note that the capital loss is only made in the year the company is deregistered - which also means if is not applied against a capital gain in that year, it is carried forward.) See our " Deregistered Companies" webpage for a list of deregistered companies. There is a small fee to see the whole list but you can usually find an individual company's deregistration status by searching on the company and going to its record.

or

• A liquidators or administrators declaration has been issued in a previous income year and the company is now in liquidation (as distinct from "in administration"). If you did not choose to make a capital loss when the declaration was made you will have to wait until the company is deregistered before you can claim your loss. Our Loss Declarations webpage features many of these companies. There is no fee to view this. deListed monitors distressed and failed companies constantly and is uniquely qualified and licensed (Australian Financial Services License 334036) to provide this specialised service.

Recapitalisation and requotation

Many shareholders have asked us about the possible value of their shares if their company is restructured and able to regain quotation. In our experience the residual value of an average shareholding has been negligible in such circumstances. The best way to demonstrate this is to take two prominent companies that were recapitalised and subsequently regained quotation:

Western Metals Limited (now Indago Resources Limited (IDG) – As part of the restructuring, this company’s shares were consolidated, with existing shareholders receiving 1 share for every 100 they held previously. The shares came back on the market in December 2005 at about 2.3 cents and an “average” shareholding of say 50,000 shares acquired at 28 cents* each (cost $14,000) had thus become 500 shares, worth about $15.

Gympie Gold Limited (now Lachlan Star Limited (LSA) - As part of the restructuring, this company’s shares were consolidated, with existing shareholders receiving 1 share for every 15 they held previously. The shares came back on the market on 4 April 2006 (the company was then called Toodyay Resources Ltd) at about 2 cents and an “average” shareholding of say 25,000 shares acquired at 56 cents* each (cost $14,000) had thus become 1667 shares, worth about $34.

* average closing price over the five years prior to suspension

While any value is better than nothing, in each case shareholders who had retained their shares were still faced with having to sell a less-than-marketable parcel to crystallise their capital loss. Clearly it was in shareholder's interests to dispose of their shares and take the tax benefit of the loss immediately.

Transfer of securities

Shareholders should be aware that some of the companies in the above schedules are in administration. While s437F of the Corporations Act restricts the transfer of shares in such companies, the Australian Taxation Office has determined that in certain circumstances the capital loss can be crystallised. Our documentation and process has accomplished this for thousands of transactions since tax year 2003/04. We are not aware that any claim has ever been disallowed by the ATO.

Shareholders seeking further background should see our Loss Declarations, Deregistered Companies and Capital Gains Tax Basics webpages.

Thank you for the wonderful service you provide through your website. I've had the pleasure of selling a parcel of shares: easy, efficient, and very cost-effective. And I especially like the super-easy way your site allows me to chase up companies' various name changes, and so remain up-to-date.
