How to send funds to your investment account from overseas

How to send funds to your investment account from overseas

Funds should be wired to your account only after receiving authorization from JNFM.

A Client Information Form, AO1 for individuals and AO2 for Corporates, should be completed stating the source of funds for the transaction. Whereas a wire transfer normally takes a few hours, on occasion this process may take a day or two depending on the origin of the funds. Your investment account will be credited upon receipt of these funds.

Here are the instructions to wire funds to your account.

JN Giro System (UK)

JNBS account holders may go to Barclays Bank in the UK and lodge funds directly to their JNBS account with instructions for those funds to be transferred / paid over to JNFM for their investment account. If you choose to send funds to us via this method, please note that it takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks before the funds are credited to your investment account.

Redemptions from your investment in whole, e.g. interest, principal repayments etc., may be done via a wire transfer directly to your bank account or by us sending your cheque directly to your mailing address via courier. Your payment instructions for either a cheque or a wire transfer to your account are to be forwarded to us by mail, fax or courier.

Reduce the tax rate on your investment

As an overseas resident, you may be entitled to a reduced tax rate under a double taxation treaty between the Government and your country of residence. To access this reduced rate (Canada 15%, USA 12½%, and UK 12½%), you are required to furnish the Jamaican Tax Authorities with the following:

  • Copy of the relevant travelling pages of your passport
  • Completed 1N form (obtainable from JNFM)
  • TRN (or completed application form)
  • Copy of Resident Card
  • Evidence of the account (provided by JNFM)
  • Letter from you stating your residency status

The documents may be forwarded to us and JNFM will arrange for their submission on your behalf. The cost for this service is US$20.00.

Alternatively, you may send this information directly to:

Tax Audit and Assessment Department

116 East Street

Kingston

JAMAICA, W.I.

 

They will in turn notify JNFM of the reduced tax
