Property Income Dividend – payment gross of tax

As a UK REIT, the Group is obliged to make distributions in the form of Property Income Distributions (PID’s) of at least 90% of its net property income (less capital allowances). PID’s will be paid under deduction of withholding tax. However, there are provisions in the regulations for gross payments to be made to those who qualify (Corporate holders as set out in Regulation 7 of Statutory Instrument 2006, number 2867).

Gross payment will be made to UK based institutions that meet the requirements of Regulation 7, all overseas based shareholders, even if eligible for gross payments under Regulation 7, will be paid net and will have to seek reclaim direct from HM Revenue and Customs.

Examples of UK institutions that may be eligible for gross payment are:

UK Companies;
Local Authorities;
UK Pension Schemes; and
Managers of PEPs, ISAs and Child Trust Funds.
