#### Question

A company pays a dividend of 15% on its ten-rupee shares from which it deducts income tax at the rate of 22%. Find the annual income of a man who owns one thousand shares of this company.

#### Solution

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 10

Nominal value of 1000 shares = 1000 × 10 = Rs 10,000

∴ Dividend =15% of Rs 10000

`= 15/100 xx 10000 = "Rs" 1500`

∴ Income tax paid = 22% of Rs 1500

`= 22/100 xx 1500 = "Rs" 330`

His net income = Rs 1,500 – Rs 330 = Rs 1,170
