    Hello,
    I have a question regarding tax deduction.
    I am arranging a finance to top my investment loan (access equity from my PPOR). However, it won’t be ready before I need to use the fund for the deposit for my investment property.
    I can borrow the fund from my relative to pay the deposit for my investment property. Once the bank makes the fund available in my investment loan, I will pay back my relative.
    Is the amount I used for the deposit tax deductible?

    Thanks,
    PC

    Hi PC

    Speak with your accountant about this one – it’s a good question.

    An alternative is to use a deposit bond.

    Cheers

    Best to speak to a lawyer and a tax adviser. yes you could enter into a loan agreemennt with a relative and then refinance this loan with a bank loan. Need to be careful as there are many issues.

    Thanks Terryw,
    Do you think it’s better to apply and use a personal loan from the bank and later on use the fund from the investment loan to pay off and close the personal loan?

    Thanks,

    Hi PC

    No worries. It’s literally a piece of paper that substitutes cash when paying the deposit.

    Takes less than a day to arrange and costs a small fee. Deposit Power is probably the most well know provider – http://www.depositpower.com.au/dpg/

    This would be the easiest option in my opinion.

    Just check with the vendor if they’ll accept a deposit bond (most will).

    Cheers
