: Is it possible to use FM to enter the purchase of discounted T-bills? Would I enter the purchase at the discounted price then enter a dividend on the maturity date? Also, if I buy T-bills on different dates with different yields must I enter each one as a separate investment?
Let me make sure I understand how a T-bill works... You purchase a
T-bill for say $95 and then on the maturity date it becomes worth say $100?
If this is correct you can record the purchase of 95 shares at $1/share
and then on the maturity date record a reinvested distribution of 5 shares
If you buy T-bills on different dates you would record a separate purchase
for each one.
There are no special provisions in Fund Manager for T-bills, for example
to record the yield. You just record what you paid, what gains they made
(distributions), and when you sell them. Fund Manager will calculate the
yield you made.
