Property Books and Property Investment Books in Australia


Not every tax break is DODGY
Since property marketing agents began promoting investment property and negative gearing as a means to attaining financial freedom during the mid nineties there has been a glut of property books and property investment books. You could be forgiven for labeling slick marketing campaigns on how to be a property investor as DODGY.

Having said that, ATO statistics reveals there are over 1.5 million investment properties in Australia. I can assure you - negative gearing and investment property as a means of attaining financial freedom is far from DODGY.

As tax accountants we have many dealings with property investors in many areas including educating clients on investment property, property investment analysis, negative gearing explained, helping clients avoid common mistakes, tax compliance, recommending ownership and finance structures to maximise tax benefits and minimise risk, tax compliance work and managing cash flows associated with investment property portfolios. Recognising the need for more specialist taxation advice in the area of investment property, which I found was lacking in many property books, I started preparing my own material to help guide clients in the area of property investment.

Having done so, more and more non-clients are asking for access to that material. Accordingly, I am progressively making the material on taxation and investment property available in different ways, including my book titled:
