​​​​​​What is an Investment Fund?

Taxation in Investment Funds

If the investor sells his/her fund participation certificate, only a withholding of 10% will be made on income derived thereby. Withholding is not made on the portfolio earning, but on the income derived by the investor. A fund investor may defer tax until he/she sells the fund participation certificates held by him/her, meaning that investors will pay no tax so long as they do not dispose of their fund participation certificates. No withholding will be made on income derived in case participation certificates for any investment fund carrying stocks in at least 51% of the portfolio are sold (returned to the fund) after a holding period of more than one year.

In investment fund sale transactions, tax base will be calculated at the sales price by the FIFO (first in first out) method.
