One of our more popular requests is to sell AMP shares; here’s a bit of history and some clear instructions on how you can sell your AMP shares. Start type
AMP Limited listed on the Australian and New Zealand Stock Exchanges as part of the demutulisation on 15 June 1998. A total of 1.6 million people received AMP shares!
Demutualisation is the process by which a “mutual” organisation like AMP changes to become a shareholder-owned company. Demutualisation separates the interests of Members as owners from their contractual interests as Policyholders.
If you are an Australian tax resident and sold your AMP shares after 23 December 2003, here’s how you calculate the cost base of the AMP shares held as at 23 December 2003.
If you purchased AMP shares prior to 23 December, 2003 through the pre-listing facility in June 1998, Share Purchase Plans, Dividend Reinvestment Plan, off market transfers or on market purchases the cost base is going to be different.
This is because the AMP demerger in December 2003 involved cancelling in total 29.1947766% of your AMP shares. The Tax Office considers each purchase of shares as an individual parcel and it was left to the taxpayer to decide which parcel(s) of shares were cancelled to arrive at the 29.1947766% total.
