AMIT

What is an Attribution Managed Investment Trust (AMIT)?

An AMIT is a managed investment trust that has chosen to apply the AMIT regime. Managed investment trusts include most listed trusts and other widely held trusts.

What is the AMIT regime?

The Tax Laws Amendment (New Tax System for Managed Investment Trusts) Act 2016 (the Act), which establishes a tax system for managed investment trusts (MITs), received Royal Assent on 5 May 2016. The rules apply from 1 July 2016.  Prior to the commencement of the AMIT regime, family trusts and large managed investment trusts were subject to the same set of tax laws. Many aspects of these laws were uncertain and difficult for managed investment trusts to apply in practice and resulted in unnecessary administration costs.
 
The AMIT regime provides a specific set of rules that are intended to provide greater flexibility in the operation of an AMIT’s tax affairs and to reduce administration costs.
 
Under the AMIT Regime, unitholders are taxed on the taxable income that is “attributed” to them by a Fund on a “fair and reasonable” basis.  Under this approach a Fund can attribute an amount of taxable income to unitholders that is greater than the cash paid.
 
The AMIT regime will not change the overall manner in which CQE’s income is taxed or change the way in which investors complete the tax return. Consistent with the previous trust taxation regime:
 
  • CQE itself will not be subject to tax;
  • an Australian resident CQE unitholder will include their share of CQE’s taxable income in their assessable income for the year to which the income relates (not the year in which it is received);
  • withholding tax will be deducted from distributions to non-resident CQE unitholders;
  • investors will include the different components of their share of CQE’s taxable income in the tax return labels; and
  • where cash distributed to Unitholders is greater than their share of the net income of CQE, the Unitholder is required to reduce their cost base in the units of CQE.
At this stage, Charter Hall Social Infrastructure Limited intends to continue with its current distribution policy and will attribute a Fund’s taxable income in the same manner as under the previous trust taxation regime which is in proportion to the cash distributed to each Unitholder.

Why is the fund electing to opt-in to the AMIT Regime?

FIML has decided to elect for the AMIT Regime to apply to the Fund commencing from 1 July 2017 for the following reasons:
 
  • elimination of a number of areas of uncertainty in the existing laws;
  • tax status of Fund – The AMIT Regime deems the fund to be a “fixed trust” providing certainty to the fundto be eligible for certain tax concessions, such as the ability to recoup carried forward trust tax losses;
  • prescriptive treatment of under or over-distributions of taxable income (“overs” or “unders”) of a Fund which will reduce the requirement to amend prior year tax returns previously lodged; and
  • prevention of double taxation – The AMIT Regime provides the ability to make upward cost base adjustments to Fund units where cash distributions are less than the taxable income attributed to Unitholders.  In the absence of this, Unitholders may be taxed twice on certain amounts attributed to them.

When does the AMIT regime start?

Managed investment trusts can choose to be AMITs with effect from the year ended 30 June 2016 or any later year.  CQE has elected to become an AMIT from 1 July 2017. CQE will be an AMIT for all subsequent years as the election is irrevocable.

Distributions

Information on how you can receive your distribution including details about our distribution reinvestment plan, and current and historical distribution information.

Distribution Policy & Payments

Distribution Policy

The Trust has a practice of distributing up to 100% of its distributable income which is calculated as the net accounting profit attributable to Unitholders less any unrealised components. The Trust can give no assurance as to the specific level of distributions, if any, as this depends, among other factors, on the Trust’s net earnings from its properties and its ability to raise both debt and equity at an appropriate cost of capital.

Distribution Payments

The Trust makes its distribution payments on a quarterly in arrears basis. The Trust makes all distribution payments via Electronic Funds Transfer to Unitholders’ bank accounts.

1 For the year ending 30 June 2018, CQE’s ongoing asset recycling program has yielded discounted capital gains of approximately $11 million. The Responsible Entity has determined that these funds are best deployed in funding CQE’s committed development pipeline rather than being distributed to Unitholders.

 
Under the Attribution Managed Investment Trust (AMIT) regime, which FET opted into effective 1 July 2017, capital gains derived from asset sales, together with other taxable income (e.g. rent) of 21.3 cents per unit were attributed to Unitholders for the year ended 30 June 2018.  This exceeded the cash distribution made to Unitholders of 15.1 cents per unit.
 

Under the AMIT regime, Unitholders will be required to include the attributed amounts (21.3 cpu) in their assessable income. Subject to the Unitholders tax circumstances, Unitholders should be able to revise upwards their cost base in CQE units by the difference between the taxable income (including capital gains) attributed to them and the cash distribution received.  This amount is shown on investors 2018 Attribution Managed Investment Trust Member Annual Statement as “AMIT cost base net amount – shortfall”.

Note: Tax status of trust changed from 1 July 2005.

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 Education Trust’s portfolio represents a mix of high quality Australian and New Zealand early learning centres.

When investors buy units in Charter Hall Education Trust, 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 Education Trust, distributions are paid every quarter.

How do I invest in Charter Hall Education Trust?

Charter Hall Education Trust is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) under the stock code “CQE” (it was previously FET). 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?

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

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 Education Trust. 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 Education Trust makes payments to unitholders quarterly, in February, May, August and November.

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 Education Trust without the need to pay brokerage, rather than having your distributions paid to you.

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 137 895.

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 Education Trust 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. 

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

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.
