Deemed rate of return set

The deemed rate of return for taxing foreign investment fund interests has been set at 10.27%, for the 2006-07 income year, up from 9.82% last year, Revenue Minister Peter Dunne announced today.

"The deemed rate of return is set annually and is based on an average of five-year government stock, to which a 4 percent margin is added," Mr Dunne said.

"It is one of the methods that can be used to calculate income from foreign investment fund interests," he said.

The new rate was set by Order in Council today.
