FIF deemed rate of return set for 2010-11

2011 Order in Council sets the deemed rate of return for taxing foreign investment fund interests at 8.52% for the 2010-11 income year.

The deemed rate of return for taxing foreign investment fund interests is 8.52% for the 2010-11 income year, down from the previous year’s rate of 9.12%.

The deemed rate of return is set annually and is one of the methods that can be used to calculate income from foreign investment fund interests. The rate is based on taking an average of the five-year Government stock rate at the end of each quarter, to which a 4% margin is added.

The new rate was set by Order in Council on 9 May 2011.
