Capital Gains Tax
When you invest in the Cromwell Property Group you acquire stapled securities. Each stapled security consists of a share in Cromwell Corporation Limited ("CCL") and a unit in Cromwell Diversified Property Trust ("CDPT"). CCL shares and CDPT units are separate assets for capital gains tax purposes.
Security holders should refer to the ATO’s document titled "Stapled Securities and Capital Gains Tax" to determine their capital gains tax (CGT) obligations.
For capital gains tax purposes Stapled security holders need to apportion the cost of each Stapled security and the proceeds on sale of each Stapled security on a reasonable basis over the CCL shares and CDPT units. One possible method of apportionment is on the basis of the relative net tangible assets of CCL and CDPT. Details of the net tangible assets of CCL and CDPT are set out in the section titled "Disposal of Your Stapled Securities" in the Income Tax Guide.
It is also important that Stapled security holders apply the correct tax treatment to the tax deferred component of their distribution. While tax deferred distributions are generally not immediately assessable for income tax purposes they will however reduce the capital gains tax cost base of the CDPT units. Stapled security holders should refer to the section titled "Tax Deferred Amounts" in the Income Tax Guide for more information.
