AAIF is domiciled in Jersey so no Stamp Duty I believe

Hi, It was me... I'll copy here - if anyone can help! Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm trying to compare HFEL and Aberdeen Asian Income (AAIF) because i'd like to get some income exposure to Asia. At the moment I'm thinking that AAIF is the better buy because it's a) on a 9.55% discount as opposed to HFEL's discount of 1.5 b) HFEL has a 12% exposure to China and AAIF only 3.5% (I would prefer a smaller exposure to China) However the yield on HFEL is greater at 7% rather than the 5.4% on offer at AAIF. HFEL has a good record of increasing dividends. Is there a reason(s) I should or shouldn't choose AAIF that i haven't considered ? Thanks!

Somebody on the HFEL thread asking if there are any known downsides to currently investing in AAIF rather than HFEL, apart from the somewhat lower yield. They see this trusts lower % in China as a plus at this time.

Aleman/Cerrito - thanks for your feedback. Have some high yielding HGM - may offload a few prior to US interest rate hikes just to rebalance a bit

Certainly worth looking at but something I my bones tells me to wait a bit before adding to my present holding. Interesting as of the half year was trading at a premium to NAV and is now at a 8% discount, despite all the buybacks of the last weeks. Perhaps Investec is continuing to off load.

Looks a possible buy but you might also look at HFEL which has a higher yield (prospective looks like 7.0% versus 5.8% here) and a stronger dividend growth record. If you are looking for foreign income, you might also consider ALAI which has just rebased the dividend downwards but which still yields 7.3%. Political risk in Latin America is probably a bit higher, though.

Todays FT.... http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/fab59682-6c0b-11e5-8171-ba1968cf791a.html#ixzz3nsbI1SLB ......But what should private investors, who may not have large amounts of money for high-risk investments in uncertain Asian economies, do with all this information? For those that already hold Asian funds, it could strengthen confidence to hold on, instead of joining the panic selling. And for investors with enough risk appetite, Asian-focused investment trusts that either offer a high dividend yield or trade at a discount to their net asset value, may be worth exploring. John Newlands, an investment trusts expert at Brewin Dolphin, is currently recommending Aberdeen Asset Management’s Asian Income trust. As the chart below shows, the trust is trading at a slight discount to the market value of the stocks that it holds, with a dividend yield of around 5 per cent. “The presence of a decent dividend yield tends to underpin the [stock’s] rating,” Mr Newlands says, explaining that this — combined with Aberdeen’s “experienced” Asian management team — may attract new investors into the trust, “despite the volatility in this uncertain part of the world”.

Although I hold quite a few of these, they are all held in nominee accounts and I evidently missed any emails about the issue of further shares. May I ask at what price they were offered, as this may in part account for current weakness?

Yes interesting. I didn't go for any C shares, so am hoping they don't affect the share price too much!

Wondering what the value of the shares will be when c shares will be merging with ordinary shares after fridays close.

I know that, for a standard-rate taxpayer, like myself, they are atill tax-free, and the dividends from UK-based cos. would already have been taxed before entering the ISA. (And this tax is not reclaimable, inside or outside the ISA),. But would recommend looking this up on the Inland Revenue website for confirmation. P.S. things are different for a higher-rate taxpayer, should you be lucky enough to be one! (There was something about this in today's Daily Telegraph). - DYOR

But if I withdraw AAIF dividends from my ISA, are they subject to tax? And is this withdrawal treated differently from the dividends of other UK based co's?

Dividends are paid gross, so you are liable to the tax thereon. But that's why I hold them in an ISA, as they are one of the few holdings worth putting therein for income-tax-saving advantage!

I think the key question is whether it is classed as an offshore fund. This is what the HMRC says: 'The dividend tax credit is only available where the shareholding in the foreign company is less than 10% and the foreign company must not be an offshore fund. An offshore fund is an offshore collective investment scheme that may take the form of a non-resident company. Ask your financial advisor or broker if you are not sure whether the shares you hold are in an offshore fund." Grateful for any advice.

I don't think so. The tax voucher quotes zero Jersey tax on a gross dividend that equals the net one. No credit is given against UK tax so I presume it is still due.

Just filling in the self assessment tax return. Does anyone know whether dividends from Aberdeen Asian Income Fund Limited qualify for the UK dividend tax credit as it Jersey domiciled? Have asked the company, the registras and my broker but no one is willing to give me an answer.
