Maximise Your Investment Potential

Thinking about how you can optimise tax deductions and wealth creation on an investment property purchase?

TipBorrow the full purchase price, plus all related costs IF You have non-deductible debt, such as a home loan AND You have equity available that you can borrow against in your home or other properties.

Maximise Tax Deductions:  

Borrowing to cover both the purchase price and expenses like stamp duty, transfer fees, solicitor fees, and buyer’s agent fees, optimises your tax deductions. 

Preserve Your Savings 

Keep your surplus savings and all free cash flow for reducing the debt and interest on your home loan, rather than depleting them going towards purchasing an investment property, when all the interest is deductible on the investment loan, and it isn’t on the home loan. 

Deposits and Purchase Costs 

The ideal approach includes borrowing for the deposit to ensure it’s claimable. Few people realise that if you pay for the deposit from savings, it isn’t tax deductible, even if you pay yourself back and borrow the money from the investment loan when the new investment property settles. 

Paying for the deposit or purchase costs out of pocket might seem straightforward, but to fully leverage tax deductions, it’s beneficial to fund these through a loan. 

When borrowing to purchase an investment property, it often pays to to borrow approximately 106% of the purchase price to cover all the costs of purchasing, including stamp duty, conveyancing and other adjustments such as rates, water and loan set up fees. You may also borrow to cover the cost of a professional adviser, such as a Property Planner or Buyer’s Agent.
