David Johnston – The Property Planner’s Golden nugget: tax ubiquitous and full of land mines, there is a lot to understand and it’s something that is not that well understood, a great advisor will have a really good understanding of all the different areas of tax and can provide you with enough general knowledge and information to education and empower you to make great decisions for yourself. It will cost a lot of money for a tax advisor to sit down and write all of these pieces of advice. Select the right advisor who can arm you with that general knowledge.
Peter Koulizos – The Property Professor’s Golden nugget: you get some very clever accountants that are very good at reducing someone’s taxable income on your tax return, you can feel like you’re a hero if you do that and save tax, but if doing that costs you an opportunity when your income is insufficient for a loan you have to think about whether it’s worth it.
Cate Bakos – The Property Buyer’s Golden nugget: your tax can be a mine field, find yourself a good accountant, but make sure it’s a good property accountant, if you are an expat in particular, I’d encourage you to get in touch with one much sooner than later.
