How do I edit my book cost?

When you transfer shares into your account, the book cost will be displayed as zero, unless you have provided us with a figure on your transfer form. The book cost will also be changed to zero if there has been a corporate action on your shareholding.

In the screenshot below, the book cost is displayed as A$500.00. In order to amend this, you need to right click on the position and select ‘edit book cost’ from the drop-down menu.

The image below shows the dialogue that will appear, which you can use to make any edits to the position.
