# Example: sale of fully or partially paid-up shares

Don CLS On March 5, 2001, it acquired 900 shares of the publicly traded company YY for an amount of 10 euros per share.

On May 11, 2007, YY company distributed dividends through the delivery of fully paid-up shares. Don CLS receives 600 shares.

On September 14, 2011, another 500 partially redeemed shares are delivered for which 3,500 euros are paid (5 euros per share).

On October 15, 2021 Mr. CLS sells 1,600 shares for 16,000 euros (10 euros per share).

## Solution:

1. Acquisition value of the fully paid-up shares .

The fully paid-up shares received on May 11, 2007 are added to the shares acquired on March 5, 2001 (900 + 600 = 1,500 shares) and the total cost (9,000 euros + 0 euros for the released shares = 9,000 euros) is distributed among the number of shares (1,500), determining an acquisition value of 6 euros per share (9,000/1,500), considering the date of acquisition of the fully paid-up shares received as the date corresponding to the shares from which they come (March 5, 2001).

2. Acquisition value of the partially redeemed shares .

Their acquisition value will be the amount actually paid by the taxpayer. In this case 2,500 euros (2,500 euros ÷ 500 shares = 5 euros/per share).
