Question

What is a PID?

Answer

PID stands for Property Income Distribution. A dividend payable only by a Real Estate Investment Trust and solely from the profits derived from their property investment business. Unlike a conventional UK equity, certain classes of investor are entitled to receive a PID free of tax. Otherwise, the dividend is taxed at the rate of 20% prior to distribution
