Hi Everyone. I bought two lots of shares on the ASX of the same company in early March 2019 and December 2019. I then sold both lots of shares for a loss in one transaction in late March 2020.
I was wondering if the discount or the 'other' method of capital gain/loss calculation would apply. I'm confused because I held one lot of the shares for more than 12 months which means discount method. However, I also held some for less than 12 months which is 'other' method. This is confusing because I sold both in one transaction (with one set of brokerage costs).
Do I treat them as one asset? Or do I treat them as two separate assets and if so I'm unsure how I would divide the final sale brokerage into the costs. The initial acquisition of each were different in the number of shares but similar in terms of value.
TLDR: purchasing shares at different points and then selling them at once where it seems both discount or 'other' method would apply to calculating capital gain/loss.
