The answer to this question is, "It depends on the scenario". If you are planning to buy a rental property that is cash flow negative, you need to look at the future capital growth potential and the land size of the property, i.e. is this a subdividable section or is there value left in the property which you can use to refinance later?
The current tax law allows that any losses generated against cash flow negative rental properties can be claimed against your personal income if structured correctly. This means that if your average tax rate is 33%, for every dollar of loss, you will get 33 cents back.
We just want to say that with these being the first set of accounts to be prepared for us by GRA, we are very happy with the outcome, and really feel like we are getting the support, guidance and advice that we have spent many years looking for, but only found with yourself and GRA, so thank you for that. We are very happy with the property focus and resources available with GRA to help us move ahead with our Property investment goals too.
