In 2011, Victor earned a monthly salary of $3500 and received a 13th month bonus and a
Performance Bonus equivalent to 1.25 months.
In his country, income tax is payable by all employees who earns more than $25 000 per
annum in the preceding year. Tax payable is 4.25% of the amount exceeding $25 000.
The total amount of tax deductible which he can claim as reliefs is $2866.

He has opted not to pay his income tax as a lump sum but to take advantage of the interestfree option of spreading out the payment over 12 months.
(c)
Calculate the tax he has to pay each month for the next 12 months.
[1]
Victor has painstakingly saved $10000 for 2011, and is considering two saving plans as
follows:
Plan A: Simple interest of 4.5% per annum
Plan B: 4% per annum compounded every three months
He plans to take either plan for a period of 10 years.
(d)
Calculate the interest he will earn in 10 years under Plan B.
(e)
Which Plan will give him a better return? Justify your answer.
