You'll need to speak with a decent IP related accountant and solicitor in regards to your options for buying under different entities – they will present the pros/cons of each given your circumstances.

if you plan to pass the property on to your kids then a family trust may assist with this. If you are self employed or have other sources of income outside of PAYG then a trust could minimise your tax if you can put profits into there to soak up the losses and depreciation (if there is any).
As Jamie said, a good accountant will help with this one for youTerrywParticipant@terrywJoin Date: 2001Post Count: 16,173
Probably not a company.
A trust structure is well worth considering, but make sure you get good legal advice as there are about 10 areas you need to consider – succession, stamp duty, trust law, land tax, convenacing act, coroporations act, SMSF laws etc etc.
Thanks buddy, I think it's good idea to talk to an accountant. too much to consider.
Thanks, we both are working for a company and we do have other assets. just not really sure how trust could minimise the tax.
Thanks again. great help
