A financial advisor can help you crunch the numbers and identify optimal strategy to meet your goals.

Armed with this information you are in more informed position to identify the right property, avoiding emotionally driven decisions and other costly mistakes.
Under Australian Superannuation laws, property can be purchased through a superannuation fund, and often managed funds tend to hold property investments. Through a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund, you will be given the ability to have a direct choice in property if you choose to invest in it.
A depreciation schedule is a report that lists the depreciable assets related to owning an investment property. Generally, it gives you and your adviser an idea as to how much tax you can claim when in your tax return. It covers plant and equipment depreciation, which are assets associated with your investment property that have a finite lifetime such as carpets, lighting, etc. It also covers capital works depreciation, which are aspects of more permanent improvements and alterations to your investment property.

Tax implications will be explored with your advisor and will include: ownership entities such as family trusts; salary sacrificing; superannuation contributions; the management of capital gains; depreciation; how insurances are paid; loan structures and more.
