Zakah on Shares/Unit Trusts

Q. How is Zakah calculated on shares/unit trusts and partnerships?

A. The net Zakatable assets of the company/fund/ partnership will be considered and Zakah will be calculated pro rata of one's investment/ shareholding. However, calculating Zakah of the listed company share or unit trust maybe cumbersome. Therefore, one may pay Zakah on the full market value of the investment.           

And Allah Knows Best
