For the Investment Performance Report, it is now including the cost base of the final proceeds of sale…not just the interim investment sales…
In a situation where an asset cost $39,312 to acquire, proceeds of sale were $37,602, & it was worth $41,476 MV at beginning of the year, an asset has made a market loss of $3,875, it’s % return is -9%; the Investment Performance report result was -179% as the Asset value was reduced to $2,164 ($41,476.98-$39,312 cost base). I’m getting some strange percentages on this report now…
