DomaCom pleased with revised MIT legislation

DomaCom has welcomed revised managed investment trust (MIT) legislation which has removed a residential property prohibition.

The firm said it believed that the proposed legislation was a “robust solution” that would ensure the approximate tax was paid by foreign investors while still allowing MITs to be rightfully utilised for the investment into residential rental stock.

“We are pleased that the revised legislation has removed this prohibition and instead has addressed the potential tax leakage by foreign investment into residential properties by adjusting the withholding tax regime and ensuring that foreign investors pay their fair share of tax,” the company said.
