The Government wants to ring-fence rental losses. What can you do about it?

Make a submission of course! Let's be clear. At the time of this piece, ring-fencing is not a done deal. There is still time to push back and affect the Government's legislative agenda. Submission on this issue closes 28th February 2019. It is our opinion that, in its present form, the proposal will have far-reaching consequences many of which are unfavourable to investors, their tenants... read more

The Government’s issues paper addressing negative gearing came out earlier this year and asked for submissions. Both the NZPIF and APIA made submissions on behalf of members. The proposal outlined in the issues paper is that negative ... read more

Peter Lewis: Property and tax

A reply to those who claim investors have a tax advantage by APIA Vice President Peter Lewis: Consider the analogy of a Motel owner verses a Residential Landlord. The Motel owner rents accommodation by the night. The Landlord rents accommodation by the month or by the year. The Motel owner is in business. As such, he is required to pay income tax on any profit (his ren... read more

We are completely refitting the bathroom in our rental property, including floors, walls, ceiling and all the internal fittings. We are also installing an instant hot water bottled gas system. Is this tax deductible, or is it regarded as part of the house, which I have never deducted? It appears that you are improving the asset beyon... read more

CGT - Lunacy much?

Just this Sunday, Labour's David Cunliffe was on Q+A lambasting a tax regime that hands out tax free capital gains to property speculators as nothing but pure lunacy. And he would not be wrong. Problem is, he is wrong. In a press release issued yesterday, the New Zealand Property Investors' Federation Executive Officer, Andrew King, rightly pointed out, 'Those who buy and sell property are ... read more

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

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!
