    Multiple Dwellings, One Title

    Oh wise and benevolent PropertyTalkers...

    I am investigating a property that has three dwellings on a single title. A bungalow, and a two-story building that has as far as I can tell always been...

    Think you may have misread, Beano. I read it as them having been in the UK a long time ago, now living in NZ.

    As a Chartered Accountant, I'd certainly be telling you to declare it. But if you don't, the tax on $200pa will be $20-60pa, it's totally insignificant, and if it's going to cost you more in...

    Plastic straws are dying, Bob! The sad thing is how quickly the terrible paper ones go soggy. And that society isn't yet ready for a semi-permanent metal straw - though the keep-cups are starting to...

    Hi Andrew

    In standard circumstances, which it sounds like yours are, this is a completely legitimate and allowed transaction. The IRD have explicitly said so in at least one release, though I...

    Pretty sure everyone is.

    I'm paying 4.45% for my ANZ Flexi and 4.8% for my ASB Orbit. Though in practice I'm not paying much at all because they're mostly full.

    What are you on?

    Trusts still offer significant tax benefits in some circumstances - those with kids in their late teens, or an unemployed spouse or other close relative.

    But I have personally (and professionally)...

    What a great first post. Dreams are wonderful, but can be a bit hard to tie down, and focus in one direction.

    I'm presently considering long term options of leaving Auckland. This is not my...

    Looks nice! I'll give you $750k for it right now, unconditional. PM me.

    Seriously though (well, actually, if you're keen I was 100% serious) you just need to work out what yield you'll sell on....

    There should be no NZ tax liability relating to the situation described above. Irrelevant whether you have any other houses anywhere else in the world.

    Capital expenditure on the property is added to the initial cost of the property for bright line purposes. If you buy something for $200k, spend $50k renovating it, and then sell it for $300k, your...

    Ringfencing has created virtually no disadvantages to trusts. Losses were already ringfenced in trusts.

    If it was worth putting it in a Trust before, then yes, it's "still worth it."

    Bright Line would not apply to the transfer as part of a relationship break-up.

    However, I believe that the bright line date may then be reset to the date of transfer so it would apply to any...

    As always, it depends on the extent of work and you should get specific advice from your accountant, but the most likely answer is:

    1) Removing and replacing the fence with something better is the...

    Weird. I wrote a post, posted it, then went to edit it and it disappeared.

    Anyway, it was something like:

    Theres a pretty big difference between "a lawyer" and a specialist tax law expert.

    As Nick has said, talk to your accountant!

    1) Bright Line timeframes refers to purchase dates, nothing to do with when...

    Have you ever sniffed your hands after handling large amounts of cash, especially coins or the old cotton bank notes? Some money smells terrible. Reason they call people Filthy Rich.

    Yeah, I get...

    Not sure in 2009, but certainly not today. Banks would take one look at someone with multiple credit cards and personal loans and decline further lending.

    An excellent example! We have Zuckerberg saying exactly that.

    I disagree here. I don't see a mental disjunction (is this a word? if so it's a good one). Don't get me wrong, I don't think people are stupid to rent - though I am sure some are, as are some...

    Without seeing your books I can't comment on the tax you're paying. But 'never getting anything back' from IRD is indeed a good thing - it means you're profitable. You only pay tax on profits, and...

    Only missed out on of the didnt invest the funds elsewhere. If put into just about any property (preferably higher yield) he would have got some, all, or more than that gain.

    What you do with your income is up to you!

    But from a tax perspective, personal debt is not deductible, so costs up to 50% more than equivalent interest rate deductible debt. Makes sense to kill...

    The obvious first step for me seems to be talking to a mortgage broker. TSB has said no, but someone else might say yes. You need to get funding from somewhere - a bank, a second tier, family and...
