Make sure you use the right negative gearing approach
By: Chan & Naylor
Cash flow is very important to residential property investors. The return comes not only in the form of rent from the tenant but also even bigger in the form of negative gearing benefits. Negative gearing is not much of an investment strategy, which aims to earn money. Negatively geared properties seek to cover loan costs or make a profit through capital growth when they are sold.
Interest on an investment loan for an income-producing purpose is fully deductible under negative gearing. Any shortfall is offset in a person's taxable income, such as salary or rent from the property. Small costs, maintenance and repairs are all fully deductible while property fixtures and fittings are considered plant, which allows for depreciation deductions.
Will ATO give you a refund for something you had not paid for?
Our answer is yes, when you claim depreciation. A property includes carpets, kitchen and stoves, fixtures, air-conditioning and other fittings, which can depreciate. New buildings are even entitled to claim depreciation of the actual building called "Building Allowance."
