Check with your accountant if fences are depreciation allowable.
As you purchased the property with the fences in the state they were in the fences are not a claimable repair.
Also replacing the fence in its entirety makes it capital improvement rather than repair.
Keep the receipt of the costs to you for the fencing and show it to your quantity…[Read more]

If you wish to borrow money then you need to prove you do not need the money. If you can't prove you have a J.O.B (just over Broke) to pay for a loan then borrowing money will be challenging. This is due to the credit reforms that borrowers have to be able to service the loan. Read lots of books. http://www.businessmall.com.au/.

ozman when you were transferred did you buy another house at the new location ?
If you bought a second house and lived in it
you will lose the cgt exemption on the second house
for six years if you claim it on the first house during the first six years.
As you can only have one place at a time as a main residence.
If the first property is not your primary place of residence you may need to also pay capital gains tax at the end of financial year if you sell it. This requires you to hold on to some of the gain to pay this at eof.
I use a spreadsheet and put in a date column and interest column and a payment column and a interest charged column. And a balance column
then in the row calculate the interest charged for the days elasped.
