How to record a "Return of Capital" from a share

A return of capital reduces the capital purchase cost of the shares, yet I cannot find a Transaction sub heading to record such an event (it has happened to me recently with 2 shares held in my portfolio).

A payment from a share is simply a dividend.

There may be a difference for the taxman (of your jurisdiction), but PP doesn’t care about tax rules.

@chirlu given it’s a return of capital, this affects performance figures too, no? It can’t simply be recorded as a normal dividend.

A regular dividend is also a return of capital.

No, it’s a fundamental decision, income is not capital.
