    Hi Everyone,

    What is the tax consequences under Protected Equity Loan if:

    (1) at the end of the term, my portfolio of shares value have gone up and i decided to sell the portfolio and the proceeds i use to repay the equity loan and keep the balance.

    (2) at the end of the term, i transfer the shares to the lender in full satisfaction of the debt as a result the portfolio worth less. :confused:

    These sorts of things have product rulings usually.

    1. capital gain

    2. capital loss - probably neutral before costs though

    There are hundreds of these products out there each with their own rulings.
