    10. Return of Capital

      Return of capital(ROC) refers to payments back to “capital owners” (shareholders, partners, unitholders) that exceed the growth (net income/taxable income) of a business. The ROC effectively shrinks the firm’s equity in the same way that all distributions do. It is a transfer of value from the company to the owner. Since the ROC shrinks the business and represents a return of the investors’ own money, the ROC payment received may not be taxed as income. Instead it may reduce the cost base of the asset. This results in higher capital gains when the asset is sold, but defers tax.

    11. Div Paid on ShortSales
      With the market as it is, many of you have decided to include shorting in your investment strategy. It’s quite possible that one of the companies that you shorted was one that pays a cash dividend. Mauritius Since you are likely borrowing the shares that you initially sold to create your short position, you are required to reimburse the lender of the stock for the dividends that he missed. Your broker probably notified you of that fact, and reduced your cash position in your account by the amount of the dividend.

It also provides the function which enables the user to abandon FIFO trade matching and “force-match” specific trade transactions together into a tax lot. It will help you to avoid changing your long-term investment to short-term one.
