Webinar presentation by Amanda Watt, Shortland Chartered Accountants 

Online accommodation listing sites such as Airbnb and Book-a-bach have been enjoying a robust growth in popularity making it easier for investors and homeowners alike to make extra cash from spare properties, rooms, or any other usable space. Certainly, from an investment point of view, the cash flow proposition is nothing to be scoffed at. But a lack of awareness of the tax obligations you now place yourself under by becoming a short-term accommodation provider could result in an unexpectedly large tax bill that puts you in a worse financial position than what you started off in. 

Experienced property investor and chartered accountant, Amanda Watt, gives an overview of tax rules and implications for short-term accommodation providers. 

Subjects that will be covered include: 

  • Overview of general income tax principles that underpin short-term accommodation tax rules; 
  • The basics of how to calculate your tax including deductible expense, income calculation/records, provisional tax obligation; 
  • Mix-used asset rules and how personal and business expenses can be apportioned; 
  • GST rules and tax implications for the sale/disposal for the concerned property. 

This session is designed to give you the general information that is necessary to help you understand your likely tax position and base your decision to provide short-term accommodation off of. It is not intended to be financial or tax advice and we recommend that you reach out to your

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
