Property investment is a popular option for New Zealanders looking to boost their income and provide additional measures of financial security.
How the ownership of investment properties is structured can have a major impact on the benefits delivered. It all comes down to your individual goals – both short-term and long-term – and developing a property investment structure ideal for your particular situation.
The right property investment structure should allow investors to maximise their tax benefits while minimising the tax burden of property investment.
