How to make the most of your rental property investment
First up you need to decide where you will place ownership of your investment property for the best taxation return. It could be a look through company, a trust or yourself.
The Government is about to change the rules on investment properties. From the 1st of April 2018 you will not be allowed to offset losses from rental properties against other income. This is the last year in which you can claim losses. You should seriously consider reviewing when you undertake repairs and maintenance, as the 1st of April will be too late.
If you self manage your rental property, you may be subject to higher ACC levies.
