About negative gearing

about negative gearing special research report Photo by
The government has got its eye in, and been blooded through the odd embarrassment. It needs to ask itself whether it wants to be a two term government? Of course it does. But what about becoming a four term government? Australians like to give their new governments a go.  So if you’re a first term government all you have to do is avoid really big mistakes, and keep the photo ops coming.  But the second term gets harder. And the one after that?  Well you’re fighting that nagging “it’s time” feeling in the electorate. The Government needs to invest its political capital now doing things that might not please the electorate now, ...
A negative gearing strategy can only make a profit if the asset rises in value(capital gains) by enough to cover the shortfall between the income and interest which the investor suffers. The investor must also be able to fund that shortfall until the asset is sold. The tax treatment of interest expenses and future gain will affect the investor's final return too. Tax rules vary from country to country. Negative gearing on property is currently only found in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, all countries in the Commonwealth of Nations.
a guide to gearing |
You’ve probably heard hype surrounding the concept of gearing. Gearing is basically borrowing to invest. More often than not people borrow to invest in property, but you can also borrow to invest in shares in the form of a margin loan. The hype is all about negative gearing, but what is it and what are the other forms of gearing? Below is a quick explanation of gearing. Positive gearing is when you make a profit on your investments (and have to pay tax on that profit). A property investment is positively geared when the rent more than covers all of the expenses associated with the property. A positively geared investment ... market research, surveys and trends
Henry Review: how did the government respond? It didn't. | Crikey
?” was the tag line for Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of the infamous novel.  As anyone who had read it knew, the answer was of course that they didn’t.  In the great Hollywood tradition, the book and the film didn’t have much to do with each other.  There was much in the novel that never made it into the film, and much in the film that had nothing to do with the novel. And so it was about an hour into yesterday’s lock-up (well, it took me an hour, brighter sparks probably worked it out much more quickly) that we realised that we’d been lured in on the basis that the government was unveiling ... market research, surveys and trends


Housing Affordability | Negative Gearing
Hooray Henry! The tax review headed by Treasury secretary Ken Henry has "told it like it is" in several key areas of tax reform, such as housing, superannuation and fringe benefits. It acknowledges that huge perks in these areas, especially for wealthy people, cause economic, social and environmental damage. It also suggests important changes to reduce this damage. Sometimes, its views are mumbled in a few sentences rather than declaimed with as much enthusiasm as other reforms it knows to be more popular, at least with the business sector. But that is still a great improvement on the past two decades of denial, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Henry reviewed
A problem with government, and most of the media coverage of it, is that it's more focused on political power plays than the business of governing. The frequent treatment of government as a game is amply illustrated by the recent, but already largely forgotten, Henry tax review. "Forgotten?" I hear you say. "But all we've heard about for the last few months is the resource tax!" My point exactly. The tax labelled by the Government as the Resource Super Profits Tax was but one of 138 recommendations in the report, albeit one of the most important ones. What has happened to the rest? Well, the Federal ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The castle as a bank vault
Investing in your family home means you can avoid, perfectly legally, the tax the government wants you to pay on an investment property.' 'Why not live in your money?" one wily auctioneer suggested at a crisp winter morning auction in Melbourne recently. Why not indeed? As a buyers' agent of million-dollar-plus homes in Melbourne, I see people buying and selling some very nice homes in some very nice suburbs. One thing I often wonder is why, when someone has made money out of one of those very nice family homes, either by design or by accident, their first thought is often to draw on that money to invest in ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Are tax rates in Australia high as Europe? - Yahoo! Answers
Check out the ATO (Australian taxation office) website for all the info on Aus tax. You can do a search on what you are looking for ie "Tax rates" and find anything you want. The tax rates you are looking for is at-… PS- I think Timepond is somewhat misguided (with a huge chip on their shoulder too). I would hardly think that negative gearing is a RORT because negative gearing in effect means you are making a loss, yes you get a deduction on income from other sources that reduces the tax payable.. but you only get that deduction because the expenses of that asset ...
logic of landlording: how to make money? | Ask MetaFilter
How can I possibly buy a house with the goal of renting it at a profit? I'm in LA and even duplexes are priced so high that the mortgage costs can not possibly be covered by rents... I owned a three unit apartment in Orlando, Florida, about 15 years ago and made money from day one. (I wish I hadn't sold it when I moved away!). There are rental buildings for sale here, so I assume someone must be buying them. How are they making money? And what is the logic if they're not? Thanks! Put down a big enough down payment that the mortgage payments and operating expenses are less than the rent you'd be taking in. ...
