Zakat from the money in participation bank

Do we need to give tax (zakat) from the money in participation banks? Should the calculation be made from the sum or the revenue of it?

Money deposited on a profit-loss sharing account is subject to tax (zakat) as a whole. It should be given tax from the sum of it.

For example:

If 10.000 $ is deposited on a profit-loss sharing account and it reaches 10.600 $ at the end of the year, the calculation should be made from the total amount:

10.600 / 40 = 265 $ (zakat)
