作为房地产投资信托基金(REIT), British Land must follow certain rules relating to money it distributes to shareholders, 以及这些分配是如何征税的. 90% of the tax-exempt profit from British Land's property rental business has to be distributed to shareholders. 这被称为财产收入分配，简称“PID”。. British Land can also distribute taxed income from its other activities, 被称为非财产性收入分配, 或“non-PID”.
These distributions are commonly made by way of dividend payments. 股息可以完全PID化, 完全non-PID, or a combination of the two; the 董事会 will decide the most appropriate make-up on a dividend-by-dividend basis. 进一步, the PID/non-PID make-up of the Scrip Dividend Alternative may be different to that of the underlying cash dividend.
PID & 非pid股利支付
分享holders should note that the tax treatment of PID and non-PID dividends differs. PIDs are taxable as property letting income in the hands of tax-paying shareholders, but treated separately from any other property letting income which shareholders may receive.
- Profits distributed as PID dividends are paid out of British Land's tax-exempt profits and t在这里fore are potentially fully taxable in shareholders’ hands as property letting income. PID dividends are normally paid after deduction of withholding tax at the basic rate of income tax (20%), 房地产投资信托基金代表股东向英国税务海关总署支付的金额. Certain classes of shareholder are eligible to receive gross PID dividends. 这类的例子有:
