my101homebear in mind that the dividend is taxable
BZ888profit before tax dropped a lot, is that sustainable or some one off thingy that cause the drop?
Prcmenon MenonRefults for the 3 months to 30.9.2014 show Revenue at 102.3mln vs 102.6mln previous corresponding period. Actual distributable profit in cash terms at 26.3mln vs 28.2 mln whilst dividend of 1.991sen is close to 2.13 sen. The NAV is down a bit to 1.17 vs. 1.26 which is mainly attributable to depreciation and currency translation difference. I am happy to note the the REIT still has cash balance of 135mln. whilst total dividend comes to 25.4mln. Please also note that it has a distributable reserve of 185mln.... Overall seems a very healthy REIT.
tonywong8Withholding tax of 10% hold by company. Can IRB refund back the money if we declared our income tax less than 10%? Please advise. Thank you.
Alphabetatonywong8, the 10% withholding tax is a final tax. You are not required to declare REIT dividend income in your tax return. As such, you are not allowed to claim tax refund or tax offset in your tax returns. It is more beneficial to those whose tax brackets higher than 10%.
tonywong8Alphabeta. Thank you very much for your valuable informations.
AlphabetaIf you compared the 09/14 quarter with preceding quarter in term of PBT, the loss of RM 6.3mil is mainly due to increase in interest charges of RM 1.1mil, higher admin cost of RM 4.8mil and the remaining due to unrealized forex loss. If you add back the interest charges and depreciation, the difference on EBITDA is only negative RM 0,64mil.
The free cash flow (operating cash flow less capex) increase by RM 7 mil from RM 34.5mil to RM 41.5mil, an increase of 20.5%.
Cash available for distribution after net interest paid (interest paid less interest received) in 09/14 quarter is RM 23.6 mil which is RM 1.8mil short from the RM 25.4 mil provision for income distribution.
