Regarding the above-mentioned dividends received from public interest corporations, the deemed dividend rule does not apply, and the provision of the deemed dividend is not applied similarly for dividends received from associations without personality. The case where the provision of deemed dividend is applied is limited only when the corporation sells the sale of shares to the corporation that issued the shares due to certain reasons. It is often caused by reasons related to M & A. One possible reason for such a case is the sale of shares through a merger. However, even in such a case, not all dividends are considered applicable to merger. In case of qualified merger, provision of deemed dividend will not apply.

In this case as well, in case of qualified split type split as in case of merger, no deemed dividend will occur.
