In welcome news for shareholders, Core Exploration Ltd (ASX:CXO) has announced that its application to participate in the JMEI scheme has been accepted by the Australian Taxation Office and it has received an allocation of up to $750,000, which can be distributed to eligible shareholders.

To be eligible to receive a pro-rata distribution of JMEI credits from CXO, , shareholders must have applied for and be issued shares in the company after 23 April 2018 and no later than 30 June 2018.

The allocation of JMEI credits are to be distributed to all eligible shareholders on a pro-rata basis.

The JMEI scheme come into effect from 1 July 2017 for a four-year period based on an annual application process. Australian resident shareholders that are issued with JMEI credits will generally be entitled to refundable tax offsets (for individual shareholders or superannuation funds) or franking credits (for companies).
