Recording class action settlement proceeds

Does anyone know which account should class action settlement proceeds be recorded to?

The shares that the settlement relates to were disposed of in the 2009 FY - therefore I cannot record a return of capital on a nil cost base.

Hi @JYSUPER,

If you are wanting to record a CGT event you need to add 2 transactions

  1. Enter a purchase for the ASX code with a cost base of $0. Use the Contract Date field to enter the original purchase date if you wish for the discounted method to apply.

  2. Use the proceeds to record a disposal for the units entered at step 1

Or a distribution with CGT components could be recorded
