“We are pleased to announce the first quarterly dividend for the 2016 financial year. The distribution of 22,93 cents per share is in line with our forecast to the market. Incorporating the portfolios that we acquired at the end of last year into Indluplace has gone exceptionally well. We are grateful to our portfolio managers and their teams for their commitment in making this happen

Indluplace is still ungeared and therefore well positioned in the current uncertain economic environment. The demand for rental residential units remains robust across the portfolio.  We anticipate residential rental becoming even more attractive in a rising interest rate environment,” said Carel de Wit, FD of Indluplace

“The distribution meets the requirements of a “qualifying distribution” for the purposes of section 25BB of the Income Tax Act, No. 58 of 1962 and the distribution on shares will be deemed to be a dividend, for South African tax purposes, in terms of section 25BB of the Income Tax Act,” the company said

TAX 101

The distribution received by or accrued to South African tax residents must be included in the gross income of such shareholders and will not be exempt from income tax (in terms of the exclusion to the general dividend exemption, contained in paragraph (aa) of section 10(1)(k)(i) of the Income Tax Act) because they are dividends distributed by a REIT.

This distribution is, however, exempt from distribution withholding tax in the hands of South African tax resident shareholders, provided that the South African resident shareholders provided the following forms to their Central Securities Depository Participant or broker, in respect of uncertificated shares, or the company, in respect of certificated shares:  

a) a declaration that the distribution is exempt from dividends tax; and 

b) a written undertaking to inform the CSDP, broker or the company, as the case may be, should the circumstances affecting the exemption change or the beneficial owner cease to be the beneficial owner, both in the form prescribed by the Commissioner for the South African Revenue Service.
