Frequently Asked Questions

Provides you with general questions and answers about your investment.

What is a real estate investment trust (REIT)?

A real estate investment trust, commonly referred to as a REIT, is an investment vehicle which pools the money of many investors, so that they may share in the returns of a portfolio of property investments.

For example, Charter Hall Retail REIT's portfolio represents a mix of high quality Australian supermarket anchored convenience and convenience-plus shopping centres.

When investors buy units in Charter Hall Retail REIT, they are effectively acquiring a share of the ownership of its property portfolio. Rental income paid by our tenant customers are distributed to investors. In the case of Charter Hall Retail REIT, distributions are paid every six months. 

How do I invest in Charter Hall Retail REIT?

Charter Hall Retail REIT is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) under the stock code “CQR”. You can buy units just like you would buy shares - through your adviser, stockbroker or an online broker. If you do not already have a broker you can call the ASX Broker Referral Service on 1300 300 279 or go to the ASX website.


What is my investment worth?

As the units of Charter Hall Retail REIT are listed on the ASX, their value can change throughout the day.

To calculate the value of your investment, simply multiply the number of units you hold by the current unit price.

The number of units you hold can be found on your latest distribution advice, CHESS statement, or via contacting the Registry.

The current unit price is available on this page or the ASX website. 

How do I find out the unit price of Charter Hall Retail REIT?

Each day, most major Australian newspapers carry the previous day’s closing price for Charter Hall Retail REIT units. It can also be found on this page or the ASX website.

What is the difference between a dividend and a distribution?

Dividends are paid to shareholders by companies out of their profits.

Distributions are paid to investors by trusts, such as the Charter Hall Retail REIT. Distributions are usually made up of income - for example, rental income - and may also include a capital payment to investors - for example, if a property was sold.


When and how are distributions paid?

Charter Hall Retail REIT makes payments to unitholders twice a year, in February and August.

Unitholders can receive their distributions by direct credit into a nominated bank account or can elect to reinvest their income through the Distribution Reinvestment Plan.

Can I re-invest my distributions?

The Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRP) allows you to have your distributions reinvested in additional units in Charter Hall Retail REIT without the need to pay brokerage, rather than having your distributions paid to you.

The DRP price for new units is currently calculated at a 1.0% discount to the weighted average market price of CQR's units traded on the ASX during the 10 business days from and including the ex-distribution date.

Participation in the DRP is optional. Investors may elect to participate fully so that all of your distribution will be reinvested; participating partially so only on a specified number of the units will be reinvested and the remaining units will be paid as a cash distribution; or not participate in the DRP and continue to receive cash distributions.

The DRP is not available to unitholders outside Australia and New Zealand.

For further information on the DRP including assistance on participating, please download the DRP Booklet or contact the Registry on 1300 303 063.

What is a unit purchase plan?

A unit price plan (UPP) is a convenient way for eligible unitholders to increase their investment without paying brokerage or other transaction costs.

Charter Hall Retail REIT may, at the discretion of the Board, offer a UPP  to eligible unitholders. Future UPPs will be communicated to eligible unitholders by the Registry as applicable. 

Do I need to provide my tax file number?

You are not required by law to provide your tax file number (TFN) or exemption. However, if you do not provide your TFN or exemption, withholding tax at the highest marginal rate may be deducted from your distributions. If you have not provided your TFN or exemption and wish to do so, please contact the Registry, your broker, or use Investor Login to download the TFN form. You will need your SRN or HIN along with your surname and postcode to log in.

When will I receive my annual tax statement?

Our year-end for tax purposes is 30 June, at which time the components of the distribution are determined. The annual tax statement is mailed in August to all unitholders who received a distribution during that tax year. The statement includes information you require to maintain your taxation records such as your total annual distribution and taxation components.

To view and download your tax statement or obtain a replacement copy, use Investor Login. You will need your SRN or HIN along with your surname and postcode to log in.


How do I choose to receive investor communications electronically?

You can elect to receive all communications electronically, including your distribution advice, notices of meeting, proxy forms, annual reports and annual taxation statements.

The benefit of this is you have access to information you need in an efficient and cost-effective manner that has minimal environmental impact.

Security and privacy of your details are important, so you will always be emailed a link to a secured, encrypted website rather than receiving any attached documents via email. If you wish to elect electronic communications simply sign in to Investor Login or contact the Registry directly for a form to complete.

How do I update my investment details such as my address or bank details?

To change previously advised account or address details, or request to receive distribution payments by direct credit into your bank account, you must provide written advice to the Registry.
