If medals were handed out for making money, gold would go to property investment according to this year's BRW Rich 200 List. The list ranks property as the single biggest source of wealth among Australia's 200 wealthiest people. Despite all the attention given to mining wealth, the number of mining magnates in the list has dropped from 28 to 22, a sign of the trouble in commodity markets over the past year. By contrast, 55 of the list entrants gained their wealth from property and many of those who didn't make their fortunes in property have stored their wealth by investing in property. "The rise in the number of Rich 200 members to make most of their money from property perhaps also points to volatility in equity markets", reports BRW. "Although the property market has had its own problems, it remains a relatively...

Property owners looking to undertake a property depreciation report to obtain legitimate tax deductions for their property investments should only use properly qualified companies that are fully compliant with ATO rulings and certified members of the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS). AIQS is the professional standards body for quantity surveyors throughout Australia. Over recent years, AQIS has worked with the ATO on the review and revision of the requirements for investment/rental property depreciation reporting. Paul Bennion, Managing Director of DEPPRO says it is essential for property investors to get the right advice regarding their property. Property depreciation is a complex area of finance and tax and expert advice is important. “The ATO has spent a lot of time removing ambiguities from the legislation dealing with depreciation on residential properties. As part of this process, the ATO consulted with professional bodies such as...

  [dropcaps]T[/dropcaps]here's a very public stoush going on between the banks and the politicians about out-of-cycle rate rises. While each side argues its case, consumers are left confused about whether they are getting a raw deal. Since the RBA began cutting interest rates by 125 basis points from last November, there has been a shift in the tradition of lenders moving their rates in line with the RBA. Lenders have instead chosen in many cases to withhold part of each reduction and to make their rate announcements up to two weeks after the RBA's first-Tuesday-of-the-month announcement. We have lately fielded many questions from confused clients, asking  'who is driving rates', 'am I being ripped off', 'why are out-of-cycle rates rises happening'? Here we'll take a look at both sides of the argument and what it means for you as a mortgage holder. The government argues ...

[dropcaps]T[/dropcaps]he stereotypical Aussie family home made up of mum, dad and a couple of kids is on the wane, as couples without children fast become the family norm. As our population ages and baby boomers become 'empty nesters', it is predicted that couples without children will increase the fastest of all family types, making up 43% of all families by 2031. Other big changes include a massive increase in the number of Australians living alone - again largely a result of an ageing population. This type of household is expected to increase by up to 91% over the next 25 years, representing the fastest growing household type over the period 2006 to 2031. The number of people in our households will continue to decline until it reaches an average of between 2.4 and 2.5 by 2031. By 2016 Australia's household size is projected...
