Managed Investment Trust information pursuant to Subdivision 12-H of Schedule 1 of the Taxation Administration Act 1953
From 1 January 2017, Reef Casino Trust will no longer qualify as a Managed Investment Trust for income tax purposes. The December 2016 distribution (to be paid in March 2017) will be the final distribution that is subject to managed investment trust withholding tax which will affect future distributions paid to non-resident beneficiaries. Reef Casino Trust may as a result be required to withhold tax at different rates on the future distributions paid to non-resident beneficiaries.
