FAQ: Can interest incurred on the acquisition of shares in a private company be added to base cost?

No – this is specifically prohibited by paragraph 20(2)(a) of the Eighth Schedule. However, paragraph 20(1)(g) allows one-third of the interest incurred in acquiring listed shares and participatory interests in collective investment schemes to be added to base cost.
