How do I make a withdrawal?
The Balmain AQUA Income Trusts suspended daily redemptions on and from 25 July
2008. Since December 2008 quarterly redemption offers were made to
investors. At the unit holder meetings held in April 2010, new redemption
structures were put in place and received overwhelming unitholder support.
Details of the new structures were provided to all investors in the Notice of
Meeting sent to investors in March 2010, copies of which can be found in the
news section of this website.
Please refer to the redemptions page of this website for more information.
Am I able to redeem my investment if I am in financial hardship?
Special Hardship redemptions from the Trust are applicable to unitholders in
both the Balmain AQUA Income and High Income Trusts.
Unitholders must submit a Financial Hardship request and each request is
assessed and processed under Hardship guidelines. The Hardship application forms
and more information on Hardship can be obtained by contacting our Client
Services team on 1800 225 624.

How do I transfer a specified amount of assets to a different account?
Transfers have temporarily been suspended from 14 June 2013 until the September Quarter 2013. We will write to investors to advise when transfers will recommence.
You are required to provide proof of whether the beneficial and/or legal
ownership of the units have changed such as a stamped Standard Transfer form
from the NSW Office of State Revenue, because the units are held in NSW. You
will also need to provide a reference to the account the units are being
transferred to and from, this can be the Investor ID supplied by Balmain AQUA
which is available on the top right hand corner of your statements. A copy of
the Standard Transfer Form along with instructions on how to process the
transfer is available on the Forms page of this website, or from the link below.
Since the suspension of applications and redemptions, we also require all off
market transfers to also complete a Off Market Transfer Form - with
transactions processed at the discretion of the Responsible Entity for the
Trusts. This is in order to ensure that both the transferee and transferor are
both aware of the current status of the Trust/s at the time of the transfer. The
form which is required to be completed is available on the Forms page of this
What documentation do I need for a change of Trustee?
Proof of the change is required. Some examples of proof include either an
amendment of trust deed or a company certificate. If there is a change of
beneficial owner of the assets, it will be treated as a Standard Transfer
(please see above explanation).
When are distributions paid?
From July 2013, monthly distribution will cease. Please refer to the letter sent to investors in May 2013 in the 'News' section of the website.
How do I notify my Tax File Number (TFN) or exemption?
All notifications of TFNs must be in writing. Collection of TFN information is
authorised by the Tax Legislation and its use and disclosure is strictly
regulated by the Tax Legislation and Privacy Act.
It is not an offence to choose not to provide your TFN, ABN or exemption,
however if you do not, tax may be deducted from your distribution at the highest
marginal tax rate.
