The property investment companies have been structured in the most efficient way possible. We use all allowable deductions to minimise the tax that is payable.
We do pay both company tax and investors will pay a dividend withholding tax under the structure but whether an investor is worse off will depend on their respective marginal tax rate.
There may be situations where EasyProperties structure is less tax-efficient than investing in a personal capacity. But there are other benefits like diversification, access to investments, bulk discounts etc.
We will also take advantage of UDZ and all other incentives that come available and are applicable.
