Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Shares being of negligible value are usually declared by the stock exchange on which they are traded. In that event they provide a capital loss for Capital Gains Tax (CGT) for individuals or a trading loss for a company as companies are not subject to the CGT regime. The losses made on loans not repaid on liquidation are similarly dealt with.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
