Share Purchase Plans (SPP) are an offer to purchase additional shares given to existing shareholders. Simple Fund 360 removes many of the friction points associated with recording SPPs, as the dashboard alerts you to which SPPs have taken place during the year. The required data will prefill on-screen allowing you to easily action these when applicable to your fund.
Automatic matching has improved from Simple Fund 360 release 2.13 (16/12/2016). If the fund is using bank feeds such as BGL Bank Data Service, bank transactions loaded by the service will now automatically match to Share Purchase Plans processed from the Corporate Actions screen.
