*Amount Gross. The PID element of the dividend however, will be paid net of a 20% withholding tax (unless a shareholder is eligible for payment of a dividend gross and completes either a Beneficial Owner Declaration of Eligibility for Gross PID Payments or an Intermediary Declaration of Eligibility for Gross PID Payments form and sends the form to our registrars, Capita). Please note that prior to 6 April 2008 the withholding tax level was 22%.

**This element of the dividend will be treated in exactly the same way as Great Portland Estates plc dividends prior to becoming a REIT and in the same way as dividends received from non-REIT companies.
