Investment properties & negative gearing

Purchasing a property to rent out has long been a popular form of long-term investment in Australia. It may seem less risky and easier to understand than other forms of investments, but there are potential risks you need to be aware of.

Negative gearing occurs when the costs of owning a rental property outweighs the income it generates each year. Negative gearing is often considered more of a tax strategy rather than an investment one as the tax loss generated can be offset against other income including you wage or salary to provide tax savings.
