Episode 010 | Tax Depreciation

It’s common to hear people saying things such as , “This property would give you heaps of depreciation benefits!” But do you know how does Tax Depreciation Schedule works when investing in property in Australia? This time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley is joined by the Managing Director of BMT Quantity Surveyors, Bradley Beer to explain what tax depreciation actually meant and how does it work.

It’s important to understand that depreciation benefits should not be the prime reason for investing in property because depreciation amount will eventually deplete. Hence, it is more important to select the right location and an investment grade asset and to regard the depreciation that follows as a additional benefit.

Brad Beer had prepared two case studies for this podcast. The first is a $600,000 – $700,000 period home with a rental income of $22,880 per annum and the second is a $400,000 – $500,000 older villa with a rental income of $21,060 per annum.

This a great question and is often asked by many especially when we are seeing a surge in apartments around the city area. Technically, we are looking at this question in two parts. The first part is about understanding whether a studio or one bedroom apartment is a good choice of investment? And the second part is; are they are good investments if they are in the city?

Before we start discussing their potential as investment properties, we also need to understand the difference between a studio and one bedroom apartment. Bryce and Ben started this podcast by defining these types of asset class, the regulations surrounding them and how do they fare as an investment property. Listen to this podcast to find out more.

Episode 006 | Four Pillars of Mastery – Defence

In this episode, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley shares the last part of the Four Pillars of Mastery : Defence. Previously, they have spoken about Cash Flow Management, Borrowing Power and Asset Selection. If Asset Selection is the favourite part of the Four Pillars of Mastery, Defence is definitely the least favorite part. Most investors are always on the lookout for new investments or new ventures to go into, but the most important asset is actually the investor themselves.

So, what kind of Defence do you need to put in place?

Firstly, you need to know where your money is going and how much you used? Through that, you would have a starting point on what you should be defending. Listen to this episode to find out what other questions to you need to ask and who you should ask these questions to.
