Negative Gearing Explained

(last updated 1/04/2014)

Negative gearing is often associated with investment property but can apply to any investment project.

Property has always been an investment topic that mums and dads in Australia are familiar with. The myriad of property TV programs, Internet property search sites, property magazines and aggressive property marketing strategies, has added to our knowledge base. Australians are becoming more and more "savvy" about property - what and when to buy, locations, finance products etc. But many of them do not fully understand negative gearing.

In its simplest form, property gearing is structuring an investment project to generate either an income stream (positive gearing) or to generate a net loss (negative gearing).

Negative gearing can be helpful in acquiring investment property in a number of ways:

1. Negative gearing can magnify returns by increasing assets and the potential returns from that investment.
2. For many, negative gearing can make investing more affordable due to the taxation concessions attached to negative gearing.
