in March 2005 BHP Billiton Ltd made a takeover offer for WMC Resources Ltd - shareholders received $7.85 for each WMC share they held - according to the Australian Taxation Office the date the shares were disposed of under the takeover offer was (a) 3 June 2005, if the shareholder accepted the offer on or before that date, or (b) the date the offer was accepted, if the shareholder accepted the offer between 4 June 2005 and 17 June 2005 and the acceptance was received by BHP by 7.30pm on 17 June 2005, or (c) for other WMC shareholders, in the 2005-06 income year, when BHP Billiton completed the compulsory acquisition - if the capital proceeds of $7.85 per share were more than the cost base of the share, the difference is a capital gain in 2004-05 - if $7.85 was less than the share's reduced cost base, the difference is a capital loss in 2004-0517/03/2005
in December 2002, WMC shareholders received one WMC Resources share for every WMC share held and WMC Limited changed its name to Alumina Ltd - Alumina advised the Australian Taxation Office that WMC Resources represented 46.30% of the market value of the group as a whole just after the demerger - shareholders who received WMC Resources shares should use this percentage to apportion the sum of the cost bases of their post-CGT Alumina shares between these shares and the post-CGT WMC Resources shares31/12/2002
