Tax on Investment Properties

If you buy the property with someone else, you’ll also need to work out how to divide the income and expenses.  If you make a profit from renting your property, you may need to make pay as you go [PAYG] instalments towards your expected tax liability.  Generally, you only declare the income you earn from a property and claim related expenses if your name is on the title deed.

If you buy a property, the date you enter into the contract – not the settlement date – is your date of purchase for your capital gains tax purposes.  Apart from buying, you can obtain a property by inheriting it, receiving it as a prize or gift, or having it transferred to you as a result of a marriage breakdown.
