Capital gains - shares

Calculating cost of share disposal

In this share sale I note the share stock consists of 3 acquisitions plus a bonus issue and a rights issue. 

In computing the cost of the portion of shares sold I am basing it on a pooling basis as no shares have been acquired on date of disposal or within 30 day period post sale.

The bonus issue enters the pool at nil cost and the rights issue at the  paid discounted price.

Is this the procedure for an individuals personal capital gains computation?

You're revising Module2?

It's not how I'd explain it, but it's close enough.
