Buying property

The things you need to consider when buying a property, buying and selling regularly, buying an investment apartment and buying with the firm intention of selling.

Why your reasons for buying a property are important

When working out whether or not you are required to pay tax on the profit from the sale of a property, your intention when you bought it is one of the important factors to consider...

What if you are buying and selling regularly

If you are buying and selling property regularly you may be considered a dealer. This will have different tax implications.

What if you buy with the firm intention of resale

If one of your reasons for buying a property is that you plan to resell it any profits from the later sale are likely to be taxable.

What if you buy an investment apartment that is zero rated for GST

If you buy an apartment with a zero-rating there may be unexpected GST to pay if your circumstances change. Find out more about zero-rated apartments.
