Create cashflow and wealth with the experts in property accounting.
Building a cash positive portfolio
on better numbers
Property can be a great investment. On the up side it gives you passive income and asset appreciation, but there are clear down sides if your portfolio isn’t managed well, market conditions swing or you don’t fully understand all the numbers at play.
The ability to accurately assess potential investments, factor in all the costs (acquisition and future), AAPR, depreciation schedules, calculate ROI and then manage it, is key to growing a successful portfolio. Knowing how to minimize your costs – such as claiming all available tax deductions – can have a significant impact on your cash flow.

Whether your investment property portfolio consists of one property or a dozen, it can be difficult to know when to sell these assets. The length of time that you should retain your investment property will depend on your investment goals. In general, if you’re set to make a profit upon selling, it’s wise to wait to sell an investment property until after at least 12 months of ownership. This way, you can cut your capital gains tax charge in half.
