Tax Clearance

SARS permits an annual foreign investment allowance of R10 million for individuals, and an annual discretionary allowance of R1 million per year. The latter does not require a tax clearance certificate.

If you have reached your individual limit for the year then you can make use of the Marriott asset swap capacity at no extra cost. Please contact the Marriott Communication Centre for more details.

Taxation of Income

The income received from FWHRE is considered a foreign dividend by the South African Revenue Service and as such is taxed at a maximum 20%. This is in most cases significantly lower than the marginal rates an investor would have to pay on local real estate income.

UK Capital Gains Tax on redemptions (effective 6 April 2019)

Non-UK residents may be subject to UK capital gains tax on gains arising from a redemption of shares in the Fund. Individual investors will benefit from annual individual UK CGT tax allowances and where applicable will also be able to take advantage of specific Double Tax Agreements in place between the UK and their respective country of residence. This will also impact trusts and corporate investors.

Investments may also be registered in the name of appropriate eligible custodians, whose role it is to hold investments in safekeeping on your behalf, appointed by FIM Capital in accordance with the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority Financial Services Rule Book
