FAQ
How many trusts do you currently manage?

MPF has established 17 commercial property syndicates and trusts each owning between one and four assets.

What is your average return to investors?

Since gaining our AFSL licence in 2002 Mair Property Funds has returned to investors on average across all trusts and syndicates an Internal Rate of Return of 14.2% as at year ending 30 June 2016.

Do you have experience across all sectors of commercial property?

Yes, our Senior Managers and Directors have experience in all property sectors, including Office, Retail and Industrial property as well as various specialist areas, such as medical centres.

Do you undertake property developments?

At MPF our primary focus is to purchase quality commercial properties capable of providing secure rental income for investors. In our constant search for new opportunities we do consider development opportunities but mainly on a pre-leased or fund through basis.

What is the nature of the investment?

Each Investor becomes a unit holder in the trust. Units are issued in proportion to the amount invested relative to the total net asset value of the trust’s assets. As a result you effectively become a part-owner of the Property.

The assets of a Mair trust are generally physical property of a commercial nature. The Offer Document specifically details the assets and/or intended assets.

Issues relating to a Trust can be voted on by Investors as provided for in the Constitution. Voting rights will be proportional to the amount of each Investor’s interest.

By completing and sending an Application Form to the Manager, you are agreeing to be bound by the Constitution and the acknowledgements contained within the Offer Document.

  • Register your interest online to receive a copy of the relevant Information Memorandum or Product Disclosure Statement.
    Applications can only be made on an Application Form attached to an Information Memorandum or Product Disclosure Statement and accompanied by the appropriate payment.
Can my SMSF purchase units in a property trust?

Yes, complying and self managed superannuation funds may invest in our property trusts.

How is the trust income collected and expenses paid?

The Responsible Entity arranges for income from the Properties (rent) to be collected and pays it into the proceeds fund. Out of the proceeds fund, the Responsible Entity pays all costs, charges, expenses and outgoings it properly incurs. These include the Responsible Entity’s and Manager’s fees, property outgoings, establishment costs, administration and audit costs, Custodian and Compliance Committee fees, bank fees, government charges and taxes.

How are Distributions Paid?

The Constitution provides that the Responsible Entity will (if appropriate) make distributions out of the net balance in the proceeds fund every quarter. The Responsible Entity determines the amount to be distributed. Any net income (after expenses) received into the proceeds fund that are not distributed to investors, remain the property of the Trust (and therefore unit holders/investors).

Generally, a portion of the distributed income you receive will be tax advantaged, resulting in less income tax being payable on that distribution in the year it is received.

What is tax advantaged or tax deferred Income?

Tax advantaged or tax deferred income is derived from property trust distributions, generally as a result of building allowances and depreciation allowances and the amortisation of the costs of borrowing. The amount of tax deferred distributions received by investors varies depending on the circumstances of the trust. No income tax is payable by investors on that proportion of the distribution received that is attributed to tax deferred income.

However the tax deferred income received reduces the cost base of an investor’s original investment (purely from a tax accounting perspective, it does not reduce the actual dollar amount invested) in the trust. This results in an increase in the amount of the capital gain on disposal of that investment. But if the relevant asset is held for more than 12 months an investor is generally entitled to a discount on the capital gains tax and for an individual investor only 50% of the capital gain is taxed at the investor’s marginal tax rate.

Tax deferral has two clear benefits. Firstly it provides greater cash flow during the investment term as a portion of the income received is not taxable in that year. Secondly at the end of the investment term, provided the investment is held for longer than 12 months, discounted capital gains applies, reducing the tax payable by up to 50%.

What if I need to get my money back early?

Essentially our property trusts are illiquid and invested funds are not returned until the property is/are sold. Investors may exit earlier by the independent sale of their Units to a third party and you can contact the Manager to assist with the relevant documentation and information in this regard.

Why should the Trust borrow money to acquire the property?

Borrowing or gearing into an investment is a long held strategy that can significantly enhance the return on that investment. This is because the borrowed amount generally remains the same (assuming interest only payments), whilst the property value is likely to increase over time. However, the reverse can also apply should the property value significantly decrease, in which case the losses can be magnified.

A sensible borrowing policy or gearing level helps to manage any downside risk.

Unlike an investor borrowing in their own name to invest, our Trusts use non-recourse borrowings to limit any liability of investors to their initial investment amount only.

How much will the Trust borrow?

The levels of approved borrowing may vary in each trust however our policy is to only borrow a maximum of 50% of the property value.

What is non-recourse Borrowings?

All borrowings on behalf of a Trust are secured solely against Trust property (non-recourse to investors). This means that you have no financial or other commitment beyond your investment into that trust.

What is a Gearing Ratio?

A gearing ratio indicates the extent to which the Trusts assets are funded by external liabilities (debt).

How is Interest Cover Calculated?

An Interest Cover Ratio (ICR) is a measure that shows how many times the Trusts earnings can meet the Trusts interest expense each year. For example if a trust has an income of $300,000 and an annual interest payment of $100,000 then its ICR is 3:1.

Will I receive updates on my Investment?

You will be kept aware of the status of your Investment with quarterly income statements and other periodic reports.

Will I receive an Annual Tax Statement?

All investors in each Trust receive an annual tax statement within three months of the end of each financial year.

What other information or communication will I receive?

All investors in each Trust will receive an Annual Report, providing information on the Trusts’ activities for that year.

We also produce periodic newsletters providing a variety of information including trust updates, property market information and new investment offerings. Information held on our website is also frequently updated and we recommend investors and potential investors review the website content on a regular basis.

How do I notify you of any changes to my details?

It is important that you inform us of any changes to the details you originally submitted on the Application Form when investing. Any such change must be notified in writing and signed by all parties who signed the original Application Form. In order to assist with this process, refer to the Change of Investor Details form on our website.
