Tax time part 2: Planning for the new financial year

Martin Josselyn, 16 July 2014

Following on from an article in AR Developments’ last newsletter, in which I talked about a tax time checklist, I have been asked to write about the impact of these deductions on the average person, and what the true cost of holding an investment property might be…

So I have gathered up the details for one of AR Developments’ recent property offerings ‘Wynnum Woods’ and added the numbers together to give you a snapshot of how it works for you as a property investor.


Let’s look at the variable assumptions I have used:

  • The Project:  Wynnum Woods
  • The Property Type: 3 Bedroom Townhouse
  • The Purchase Price: $397 500
  • The Rent: $410 per week
  • The Deposit: 10% + costs
  • The Interest Rate: 5.5%
  • The Clients Income: Combined Household Income (CHI) of $100 000 ($65 000 + $ 35 000)

Have a look below at the numbers combined, and then fill in your details to receive a free Property Investment Analysis for one of our new projects personalised to your circumstances
