ZERO-RATED SALES is when a sale is taxable at the rate of 0%, i.e. no sales tax. Some examples could be: basic groceries, prescription drugs or certain medical devices.
PREPAYMENT RISK, in the area of mortgage-backed securities, which are backed by loans on property, is the possibility that home owners will payoff their mortgages early, returning the investor's principal earlier than expected. This typically occurs during a declining interest rate environment, when home owners can refinance at lower rates, leaving investors vulnerable to the risk of reinvestment at lower rates.
POINT OF is a positional determinant or modifier in that it is either the starting or ending position, e.g. point of sales, point of delivery, point of collection, or point of completed production.
