South African tax resident investors relating to REITs
** The dividend distribution by a REIT received by South African tax residents must be included in their gross income and will not be exempt in terms of the ordinary dividend
exemption in section 10(1)(k)(i) of the Income Tax Act No. 58 of 1962 (“the Act”) as a result of paragraph (aa) of the proviso thereto which provides that dividends distributed by a
REIT are not exempt from income tax.
No dividend withholding tax will be deducted from dividends payable to a South African tax resident qualifying for exemption from dividend withholding tax provided that the
investor has provided the following forms to their Central Securities Depository Participant (“CSDP”) or broker, as the case may be in respect of its participatory interest:
a) a declaration that the distribution is exempt from dividends tax; and
b) a written undertaking to inform their CSDP or broker, as the case may be, should the circumstances affecting the exemption change or the beneficial owner cease to be the
beneficial owner,

for the abovementioned documents to be submitted prior to payment of the distribution, if such documents have not already been submitted.

Non-resident investors for South African income tax purposes
The dividend distribution received by non-resident investors will be exempt from income tax in terms of section 10(1)(k)(i) of the Act, but will be subject to dividend withholding tax.
