Dividend Policy The EKUSH STABLE RETURN FUND aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation and shall not provide any dividend. The unitholders can realize their returns through redemption of the units during the business hour as specified by the Asset Manaaement Company.
Tax Benefit a) As the Fund will not provide any dividend, the unitholders will realize their positive return only in the form of capital gain through redemption of the units. According to the Income Tax Ordinance 1984, individual investors do not need to pay any tax on capital gain and thus allowing them to realize the return of Fund without any Tax. Institutional investors have to pay tax rate of 10% on capital gain which is lower than the tax rate of 20% on dividend income and thus allowing the institutional investors to realize the return of the fund more tax efficiently than the other mandatory dividend paying funds of the Country. b) Investment in the Unit Fund would qualify for investment tax credit under according to clause 10(1) of Schedule 6, Part B read with section 44(2) of the Income Tax Ordinance 1984. c) All capital gain within the Fund are tax exempted. However, the provision of the Income Tax Ordinance is subject to amendment by the Government every year through the Finance Act. As such the Sponsor, Asset Manager or the Trustee does not give any guarantee or undertaking that the provisions will remain the same in the next financial year of Bangladesh.
