If the ALP win the election next month, negative gearing and other taxes will undergo major changes.
Property experts believe that these new tax policies will have a significant impact to the Australian property market.
Here are the major policy changes that Labor will implement:
· Negative gearing will be limited to newly
constructed housing starting 1 January 2020
· Capital gains tax discount for assets held
longer than 12 months will be reduced from 50% to 25%
Here are some tips from our most successful RealRenta Landlords on how to
prepare for the property market after a Labor victory:
· Ditch your property manager and self-manage
using RealRenta. This type of market, is not
the time to fritter away your investment income on over-priced property
· Review your portfolio and make sure that
cash-flow is consistent
· Check to see if there is an excess amount of
deduction that could be offset (what is the mix of positively geared and
negatively geared properties in the portfolio?)
· Engage a good property tax professional to help
you make any decisions
· If you can hold on to your properties and play
the long game- wait this downturn out.
