  • Cost per Unit includes any commissions or brokerage fees paid to purchase the Units.
  • No. of Units purchased includes reinvested dividends or distributions.
  • After a Sale, the Capital Gain (or Loss) is calculated as follows:

    2. Then subtract the (Number of Units Sold)*(previous ACB per unit).
