The UK introduced REIT legislation in 2007 which requires that REITs must : -

 

Distribute at least 90% of rental income (“Property Income Distributions”) to shareholders (to avoid Corporate Income Tax), and

Ensure that they have 125% rental income cover to debt interest, and

Companies changing to this business structure must pay a one-time tax to the government of 2% of their gross assets.

Ensure that 75%+ of assets are property investments, and

Ensure that if / when they engage in property development, it is for long-term (3 years+) investment purposes.
