But Korean REITs market is not active up to present. So, government amended the REITs Act on September 2004. A lot of institutional improvement has been made through the amendment of REIT Act. Under the amended REITs Act, the externally managed REITs which is general REITs is classified as the paper company and treated as the entity that is endowed with the tax benefits and the establishment of REITs has become relatively easier than before due to the reduction of minimum capital required for the establishment of REITs.
