How do I work out my estimated negative gearing myself?

Post by confusion »

Hi, I want to buy an investment property (my first) and in order to make the purchase, I will need an investment loan. But before that, I want to calculate and work out the numbers I've been theorising to make sure I can take advantage of negative gearing (for at least the first year or so I guess). How can I work this out properly?

Hello confusion. Welcome to the forums.

You can use our negative gearing calculator to work out the profit or loss from your investment property as well as your tax refund from negative gearing.

We simply deduct the costs for the property from the rent income you receive. This gives us your weekly cashflow. For new properties, we can also deduct depreciation.

We can then calculate the effect that this will have on your taxable income and the amount of tax you would get back, depending on your tax rate.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Otto

Wow, that calculator is pretty slick. I like it. What about cashflow? Do you guys also have a calculator which can help me workout the estimated cashflow from an investment property? I can then use that as well as the negative gearing calculator to put a few scenarios to the test...

Hi confusion,

You can use the investment property cashflow calculator to accurately predict the weekly cashflow position of your next investment property.

Simply enter the details the details of the purchase including property price and your deposit, your income and the expected rent income, and the costs associated with the property although our calculator will estimate some of them for you, and our calculator will work out the rest for you.

If you would like to know more about these including your investment property borrowing power then you can check out our website. You can also speak with one of our investment loan specialists by calling 1300 889 743 or enquiring online.

Cheers,
Otto
