Withholding Tax on Interest (WTI) came into effect on 1 March 2015.
Interest accruing from a South African source to a non-resident, excluding a controlled foreign company,
will be subject to withholding tax at a rate of 15% on payment, except interest:
• arising on any Government debt instrument.
• arising on any listed debt instrument.
• arising on any debt owed by a bank or the South African Reserve Bank.
• arising from a bill of exchange or letter of credit where goods are imported into South Africa and
where an authorized dealer has certified such on the instrument.
• payable by a headquarter company.
• accruing to a non-resident natural person who was physically present in South Africa for a period
exceeding 183 days in aggregate, during that year, or carried on a business through a permanent
establishment in South Africa.
Investors are advised that to the extent that the distribution amount comprises of any interest, it
will not be subject to WTI by virtue of the fact that it is listed debt instruments and/or bank debt.
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 (“CDSP”) 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, both in the form prescribed by the South African Revenue Service. South
African tax resident investors are advised to contact their CSDP, to arrange for the
abovementioned documents to be submitted prior to payment of the distribution, if such
documents have not already been submitted.
The dividend distribution as outlined above is subject to the amendment to Dividends Tax that was
introduced with effect from 22 February 2017. The dividend, as defined in the Income Tax Act of 1962, is
payable from dividends accumulated in the fund. The South African Dividend Tax rate of 20% has been
applied to both local and foreign dividends.
There are 20,880,000 FNB Global 1200 Equity FOF ETF securities in issue. The total dividend amount
payable is R 4,323,366.64.
