TAXATION OF DERIVATIVES AND NEW FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
ST/SG/AC.8/1995/L.6 English Page 12 payment to A each quarter equal to one fourth of the product of 1,000u and any excess of the LIBOR for the quarter over 10 per cent; (c) Floor - same as a cap, except that the periodic payment is the notional principal amount times the excess of the fixed rate over the variable rate (e.g., 1,000u times the number of percentage points by which the LIBOR on the payment date is less than 5 per cent). A floor might be purchased by an investor who, for example, holds a 1,000u bond paying interest at the 90-day LIBOR and who is generally willing to bear the risk of interest rate fluctuation but wants to be protected against the possibility of the LIBOR falling below 5 per cent; (d) Collar - one party is simultaneously the recipient of the periodic payments under a cap and the payor of the periodic payments under a floor, or vice versa. 48. (...) For example, under a cap or a floor, one party usually makes a single fixed payment, and the other party assumes an obligation to make periodic payments.
