We permit the publication of our auditors’ report, provided the report is published in full only and is accompanied by the full financial statements to which our auditors’ report relates, and is only published on an access-controlled page on your website, to enable users to verify that an auditors’ report by independent accountants has been commissioned by the directors and issued. Such permission to publish is given by us without accepting or assuming any responsibility or liability to any third party users save where we have agreed terms with them in writing.

Our consent is given on condition that before any third party accesses our auditors’ report via the webpage they first document their agreement to the following terms of access to our report via a click-through webpage with an 'I accept' button. The terms to be included on your website are as follows:

I accept and agree for and on behalf of myself and the Trust I represent (each a "recipient") that:

  1. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”) accepts no liability (including liability for negligence) to each recipient in relation to PwC’s report. The report is provided to each recipient for information purposes only. If a recipient relies on PwC’s report, it does so entirely at its own risk;
  2. No recipient will bring a claim against PwC which relates to the access to the report by a recipient;
  3. Neither PwC’s report, nor information obtained from it, may be made available to anyone else without PwC’s prior written consent, except where required by law or regulation; and
  4. PwC’s report was prepared with Hermes Property Unit Trust's interests in mind. It was not prepared with any recipient's interests in mind or for its use. PwC’s report is not a substitute for any enquiries that a recipient should make. The financial statements are as at 25 March 2017, and thus PwC’s auditors’ report is based on historical information. Any projection of such information or PwC’s opinion thereon to future periods is subject to the risk that changes may occur after the reports are issued and the description of controls may no longer accurately portray the system of internal control. For these reasons, such projection of information to future periods would be inappropriate.
  5. PwC will be entitled to the benefit of and to enforce these terms.
I accept

Tax Information

Home / Tax Information

In addition to the taxation section set out in the Prospectus of Hermes Investment Funds public limited company, the attention of persons resident in France for taxation purposes is drawn to the supplementary information below. For investors resident in other jurisdictions, please select your country of residence from the dropdown list found at the top of the page.

PEA declaration

The following sub-funds are eligible to be held within the framework of a French share savings plan ("plan d’épargne en actions" or "PEA"):

  • Hermes Europe ex-UK Equity Fund; and
  • Hermes European Alpha Equity Fund.

In this context, Hermes Investment Management Limited as Investment Manager of the sub-funds undertakes, pursuant to Article 91 quarter L of Annex II to the French General Tax Code, that the relevant sub-funds noted above will invest, on a permanent basis, at least 75% of its assets in securities or rights listed in (a) and (b) of I, 1° of Article L.221-31 of the French Financial and Monetary Code.

The PEA eligibility of the relevant sub-funds results from, to the best knowledge of the Investment Manager, tax law and practices currently in force in France. Such tax law and practices may change from time to time and, therefore, the sub-funds which may currently be held within the framework of a PEA, could lose their PEA eligibility. Moreover, the sub-funds could lose their PEA eligibility due to any significant changes to the stated investment objectives and policies of the sub-funds. In such circumstances, investors will be informed by the publication of a notice on this webpage and investors should seek suitable professional tax and financial advice accordingly.
