  1. What will 3 months of lockdown look like?

    This is an excellent idea, and I have no idea why Jacinda and Winston haven't done it already. This is a massive crisis, and cross-party support is widely there already, why not make it official?

    Not an expert on Japanese tax law, so ask a Japanese accountant to get full clarity, but that excerpt from the Double Tax Agreement just says that NZ can tax the rental, it doesnt say Japan can't.

    I don't have a compound calculator on me as I'm on my phone, but you can do some simple math. You're effectively borrowing 6 months worth of interest - about $2.7k at your current interest rate.

    As far as tax issues go you should be OK so long as you've lived in the property for most of the time you've owned it - if not, Brightline could be a concern. Less likely, if you bought the property...

    It's a good article, though the math is a bit simple. There should be at least a little consideration that $1 in 30 years time is worth a lot less than $1 now.
