: I'm not sure of the correct method to enter the following transaction and end up with the correct adjusted cost base:
: This is a first time purchase of this no-load mutual fund.
: It has a one-time account opening fee of $40.00
: Total investment, including one-time fee is $5000.00
: Share price $15.79
: Total shares received 314.1229
: Please comment.
You could choose to enter this account fee as a commission fee on
this initial purchase, or you could enter it as a separate transaction.
buy transaction for 314.1229 shares at 15.79 for $4960, and a commission fee of $40.
buy transaction for 314.1229 shares at 15.79 for $4960.
account fee transaction (non-reinvested) for -$40.
Either case will be accurate, and give you the correct cost basis.
Note the rounding errors here, you should record the value/shares accurately,
and let the share price "float". See "Recording Transactions Without Rounding
Errors" in the online help.
