What does company deregistration mean to you?
The company is removed from the official Australian records. It is no longer a registered company. In fact it no longer exists. There are no shares, nothing.
(Don't confuse deregistration and delisting. Delisting means the company is no longer listed as an entity on the stock exchange, but it does still exist as a company.)
Deregistration is recognized as a Capital Gains Tax Event. As a shareholder you can therefore realise a capital loss for CGT purposes in the tax year deregistration occurs. (Providing your shares were acquired on or after 20 September 1985, you are an Australian tax resident and your shares are held on capital account, ie for long-term investment purposes).
Shareholders should also be aware of other CGT Events, the two important ones being:
1) The disposal of shares which can take place on the market in the normal manner or, if they can no longer be sold on the market, we may be able to assist with acquisition of your shares to crystallise a loss, see our "Sell Your Worthless Shares" webpage.
2) The issue by administrators or liquidators of a loss declaration. Such declaration signifies that there will be no distribution or further distribution to shareholders and any capital loss is thus crystallised. Declarations issued since 1985 can be found at our "Loss Declarations" webpage.
