                                  1,000                           1,000

The tax rate is 30% and earnings previous interest and tax amount to Ksh.400,000.  All earnings are paid out as dividends. Calculate payable via each firm.

Company                                 A                                  B

                                                Sh.'000'                       Sh.'000'

EBIT                                           400                             400

Less interest 10% x 1,000          (100)                                 -
