A Charter Hall Group stapled security is made up of two separate assets for capital gains tax purposes: a Charter Hall Property Trust unit, and a Charter Hall Limited share.
For capital gains tax purposes, you need to apportion the cost of each stapled security and the proceeds of sale of each stapled security over the separate assets that make up the stapled security. This apportionment should be done on a reasonable basis.
One possible method of apportionment is on the basis of the relative net assets of the individual entities.
The tables below provide the information required to adopt this method:

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.
Charter Hall Group is an Australian REIT (A-REIT).
A security that comprises a unit in a trust and a share in a company, linked together so that one cannot be transferred or otherwise dealt without the other. In the case of listed securities, they are jointly quoted on the ASX as stapled securities. Charter Hall investors hold one Charter Hall Property Trust unit and one Charter Hall Limited share ‘stapled’ together and jointly quoted on the ASX under the code ‘CHC’.
Charter Hall Group is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) under the code ‘CHC’. You can buy a security 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.
As the securities of Charter Hall Group are listed on the ASX, their value can change throughout the day.
To calculate the value of your investment, simply multiply the number of securities you hold by the current security price.
The number of securities you hold can be found on your latest distribution advice, CHESS statement, or via contacting the Registry.
The current security price is available on this page or the ASX website.
Each day, most major Australian newspapers carry the previous day’s closing price for Charter Hall Group securities. It can also be found this page or the ASX website.
Dividends are paid to shareholders by companies out of their profits.
Distributions are paid to investors by trusts, such as the Charter Hall Group. 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.
As a stapled security, CHC’s distribution consists of both a dividend from the Charter Hall Limited and a distribution from Charter Hall Property Trust.
Charter Hall Group make payments to securityholders twice a year in February and August.
Securityholders can receive their distributions by direct credit into a nominated bank account or can elect to reinvest their income through the Distribution Reinvestment Plan.
The Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRP) allows you to have your distributions reinvested in additional securities in Charter Hall Group without the need to pay brokerage, rather than having your distributions paid to you.
The DRP is currently inactive. If you have previously elected to participate in the DRP, your election will be automatically reinstated if the DRP is reactivated. If you have not elected to participate in the DRP or you would like to vary your participation, you can change your election online using the Investor Login facility, or you need to complete a DRP Application or Variation Form available from the Registry.
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.
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 securityholders 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.
Our stapled securities are comprised of two separate assets for capital gains tax purposes (one Charter Hall Limited share and one Charter Hall Property Trust unit).
