  • ChrisHall replied to the topic capital gains tax in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    CGT is a complex code, but I’ll share the bit I know (limited todate!!)… Capital gains tax is linked with income tax, so I don’t think there is a figure that somebody can give you that will be accurate unless you show all your earnings in that financial year. The capital gains will be treated as income on top of your other income and will…[Read more]

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Suitable properties, where are they? in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    You normally have to pay a spotters fee for such info – a better question would be, “How do I find suitable properties?”

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Discretionary Family Trust Question in the forum No Subject 20 years, 5 months ago

    Rodster,

    You are certainly in the right direction – many bankers etc. don’t know too much about trusts etc. Some do though.

    Just yesterday a TerryW posted this website on this board, “chrisbatten.com.au” I have had quick read of it and all your questions will be answered there (hopefully)! The advice on this site seems exceptional. If you can…[Read more]

    Yep! I think if you aim for a win-win situation in all negotiations then you will get a good name and accoding to the same book, a good name is better than silver and gold (:

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Rolling over CGT? in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    Yes, on a residential property you only pay 50% of the gain in CGT after owning it for 12 mnths. On commercial property you only pay 25% of the Capital gain in CGT after 12 mnths.

    AIUI (as I understand it)

    Doesn’t Soloman say, ‘the buyer says its too much, then walks away and boasts of the low price he got it for’

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Rolling over CGT? in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    Just found this one out – maybe its common knowleged, but it might help somebody (:

    According to a tax expert!!! (who just got back to me) you only pay 25% CGT on commercial property that you’ve had for over 12 mths (50% if under 12 mths). No roll over is possible!! Residental is different, as you would know.

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Rolling over CGT? in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    No, this advice will be free – so maybe dangerous (: Lets see what he comes up with??

    But my Account just informed me (for free!) that in Australia you can’t roll over CGT on investment property – you can if you are running a business from it though. In business (my major background) you can roll over CGT to purchase more equipment etc.

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic HOUSE FOR SALE FOR $51,000 in the forum No Subject 20 years, 5 months ago

    As far as I understand it, the 11 second rule is only a rough guide to sort potential good deals from bad deals. It does not mean it is a good deal, but warrants further research, which you are doing.

    You need to make the final decision based on all the info available and your goals, not just the 11 second rule – it’s only a filter to help…[Read more]

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic im in trouble x collarteraliasion in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    Basic rule of thumb – as I’ve been told!!

    One loan against one property. The banks will always want more.

    You can always check this out for your self at; ABS – 2001 Census of Population and Housing ABS Census free data.

    this link is found on this website – follow ‘Web Links’ on the left side of this screen and scroll down and look for the ABS link (:

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Rolling over CGT? in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    CORRECTION!

    No, Steve does not mention that CGT is transferable but mentions to be aware of tax deferral regarding claimed depreciation included in CGT at time of sale etc. p.141 – 142. and general warnings about CGT in retirement. Sorry for mixing the two together.

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Rolling over CGT? in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    Free advice is dangerous!!

    I’ve just chatted to my tax adviser and he said such a question is not an easy one and he will get back to me with specifics – I will gladly pass the info on later today (:

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Purchasing property under a superannuation fund in the forum No Subject 20 years, 5 months ago

    I dought that very much, as a loan and offset are linked – supers cannot have loans, so I would take it that they cannot be linked to a loan?

    Check with a banker (difficult to get the same answer every time you call!!)

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Rolling over CGT? in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    CGT will never disappear! It is simply defered until a later date. I’ve heard this being done quite effectively, but Steve mentions the consequence of this in his book that once you hit retirement and start selling off – you have huge capital gains tax to pay the tax man at a stage in life that you may not of calculated for or can afford. CGT…[Read more]

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic Purchasing property under a superannuation fund in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    One book I’ve read covers this topic – ‘Anyone Can be a Millionaire’ by Sean O’Reilly. He is an Aussie as well!!

    He says that purchasing property via a super fund is not a good idea, as you need 100% cash for purchase, a super fund can not take out a loan.

    The example is given that with $200,000 you can buy several properties worth $200,000…[Read more]

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic using home equity safely in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    Thanks, bill, for your reply. I’m in the research mode of property investment and have found a few positively geared commercial properties starting from the $155,000.

    I have other souces of income, but was just bouncing around this idea of using my equity to help. I actually have $57,000 equity, but based on the 80% loan rate etc. I can get a…[Read more]

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic are +geared properties tax deductible in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    You should always check such things with an accountant … but here’s my two bits worth (:

    All operating expenses are tax deductable on any business adventure – investment property is a business adventure. To have a truely positively geared property you can not (my opinion) off set rental income against a job or other income you have; it must, by…[Read more]

  • ChrisHall replied to the topic how do you find morgage sales in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    I’v come accross various ‘mortgagee in possession’ houses over time; they were very cheap and would of been a good buy, but I wasn’t in a position to purchase at the time. Various realestates have them on their books from time to time. I think If you are constantly looking they will come up now and again. Can’t say I’ve seen any lately though!

    Jules,

    I’m a newcomer to this property investment stuff and am seriously researching all angles before jumping out. I rang a few real estates about positivele geared properties and they basically laughed at me and said none exist!

    I had an RDO from work and searched hard on the internet and found three positively geared properties in one part…[Read more]
