CGT on own homes?!

Monday, March 04, 2019

IMG CREDIT: UNSPLASH

This week's question comes from Pat (paraphrased): 

I heard something about homes being subject to CGT under the current proposal if it is past a certain size. The property I am thinking of is on 5 acres with approximately 2 acres of grass and the rest in bush. There is no income from the property. Is this correct and wouldn't this affect many life-style type properties? 

Amanda Watt from Shortland Chartered Accountants Limited kindly responds below: 

At this stage, the CGT on own homes will be everything over the 4500sq metres.

From the report it looks like you would have the property valued, so theoretically the "bush" part may have a lower value so the capital gains on that would be lower than the house portion. Of course, this will rely on a valuation being obtained both at Valuation Day and when its sold to apportion it.

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.

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!
