Investment with cum.div. Quotation

Investment with cum.div. Quotation will be debited to the investment account at its full value. When the dividend is subsequently received it is apportioned:

  • Amount accrued to death being credited to capital column of the investment account
  • Amount accrued after death being credited to the income column.


The amount apportioned to capital should be transferred out of the Investment Account (thus maintaining the investment at its probate value) and credited to Estate Capital Account.
