General unitholder tax information for unitholders holding units on the South African register
The Fund and its management arrangements are structured to meet the required criteria to be classified as an Attribution
Managed Investment Trust for Australian tax purposes. As an Attribution Managed Investment Trust, the responsible entity will
be required to withhold tax on Australian sourced income at a concessional rate of 15% on fund payments (or 10% for certain
fund payments from a Clean Building MIT) to individual and institutional unitholders in South Africa and certain other
The New Zealand sourced income is subject to the corporate tax rate in New Zealand of 28%, and is not subject to Australian
The proportion of the payment in respect of the half year ended 30 September 2019 which is attributable to a fund payment
from a Clean Building MIT is NIL cents per unit.
The effect of these taxes on the Fund’s distribution has been reduced to 8.79120%, equivalent to 0.28094 AUD cents per unit,
through certain deductions such as depreciation. Thus, tax of 0.28094 AUD cents per unit will be withheld from the distribution
accruing to unitholder and will be paid to the Australian Taxation Office for Australian sourced income and the New Zealand
Inland Revenue Office for New Zealand sourced income.
South African unitholder tax implications
The distributions are regarded as a foreign distribution for South African unitholders.
The distributions comprise gross income, and are to be taxed as such, in the hands of South African investors. The pre tax
distributions are to be included in an investors’ taxable income and subject to normal tax in full. Tax paying unitholders will be
able to claim a rebate equivalent to 8.79120%. Non-tax paying unitholders will not be entitled to claim a rebate.
