Why Invest in Australia?

Carefully selected Australian property shows great investment potential in today’s market. Below you will find out why property in Australia offers you such promising investment growth.

Population Growth

Australia’s estimated resident population as of 2016 is just under 24.5 million, an increase of 1.6% over the previous year and one of the highest population growth rates in the Western world. Australia’s population is estimated to increase by some 60% to around 34 million people by the year 2050.

The growth of Australia’s population has two components: natural increase (the number of births minus the number of deaths) and net overseas migration (net permanent and long-term migration plus the migration adjustment). Since Federation in 1901, Australia’s population has increased by over 18 million people. The main component of population growth in Australia has been natural increase, which has contributed about two-thirds of the total growth since the beginning of the 20th century.
Estimates provided by the National Housing Supply Council’s 2015 State of Supply Report point to a current under supply of 178,000 dwellings with annual undersupply running at approximately 23,000 dwellings. This report points to a structural imbalance between demand, driven by strong population growth, and the construction of new dwellings.

Economy of Australia

Australia has one of the strongest economies in the world, with almost two consecutive decades of growth and the unemployment rate falling to generational lows. As a result of nearly three decades of structural and policy reforms the economy is flexible, resilient and increasingly integrated with global markets. The strength of Australia’s economy has been highlighted in recent years by its ability to withstand a number of internal and external events, including a major drought, a housing boom and the Asian financial and economic crisis.
As a result of the continuous structural and policy reforms implemented since the 1970s, Australia today has a sound, stable and modern institutional and regulatory structure that provides certainty to business and offers a welcoming destination for investment. Australia has lowered barriers to trade and investment and there is substantial competition across the economy, including in key areas such as the financial, air transport and telecommunications sectors.

Foreign investment

Australia welcomes foreign investments. It recognizes the important role of foreign investment in boosting economic growth, developing competitive industries, creating jobs and increasing exports. The stock of foreign investment in Australia (portfolio, direct, financial derivatives and Real-estate) in June 2015 totaled $2.1 trillion. Portfolio investment makes up about 63 per cent of total foreign investment. In 2006–07, foreign direct investment totaled $331 billion. In the decade to 2007, Australia was the fifth largest net recipient of foreign direct investment in the OECD.

As an investor you are likely to go through a roller-coaster ride of emotions when making your decision to purchase in a property or to embark on a property development project.

Get maximum tax returns from a negative gearing?

A rental investment property is negatively geared if it is purchased with the assistance of borrowed funds and the net rental income, after deducting other expenses, is less than the interest on the borrowings.

The overall taxation result of a negatively geared property is that a net rental loss arises. In this case, you will be able to claim a deduction for the full amount of rental expenses against your rental and other income – such as salary, wages or business income – when you complete your tax return for the relevant income year. Where the other income is not sufficient to absorb the loss it is carried forward to the next tax year.

If by negatively gearing a rental property, the rental expenses you claim in your tax return would result in a tax refund, you may reduce your rate of withholding to better match your year-end tax liability.

Depreciation

Depreciation is a legislative allowance introduced by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) that allows property investors to claim back the decrease in value of their properties and fittings.

Just like you claim wear and tear on a car purchased for income producing purposes, you can also claim the depreciation of your investment property against your taxable income.

There are two types of allowances available: depreciation on Plant and Equipment, and depreciation on Building Allowance.

Plant and Equipment refers to items within the building like ovens, dishwashers, carpet & blinds etc. Building Allowance refers to construction costs of the building itself, such as concrete and brickwork. Both these costs can be offset against your assessable income.

Capital Gains

As per the statistics, Australian Properties double in Value in every 7-10 years. If you invest at the right location at the right time, your capital gains can be over 8% – 10% per annum.

Expand your investment wealth through refinancing

While negative gearing and building depreciation will allow you to maximise your tax return, the actual property will appreciate in the market which will give you access to thousands of dollars of equity.

Access the existing equity in your existing investment property and you can easily reinvest that for a new investment property, buy shares or debt consolidation.

Also you can take advantage of a loan product better suited to your current financial situation; For example, switch from a fixed to variable rate loan, or vice-versa access a lower interest rate or lower fees, or to access features of new products

Most of the overseas investors who are non-residents of Australia can obtain home loans from the Australian Banking Institutions from 50% – 70% of the property value. While the entire process can be organized by the dedicated team at Dwellings Group, this is a sensational opportunity to the astute Foreign investors.

As long as you have the desire and passion towards investing in Australian Property Market, the team at Dwellings Group can take care of the rest for you.

Government Regulations for Foreign Investors

Residential real estate means all Australian residential land and housing other than commercial properties (such as, offices, factories, warehouses, hotels, restaurants and shops) and rural properties. Acquisitions of ‘hobby farms’ and ‘rural residential’ blocks by foreign interests are considered to be residential real estate.

The Government seeks to ensure that foreign investment in residential real estate increases the supply of dwellings and is not speculative in nature. The policy seeks to channel foreign investment in the housing sector into activity that directly increases the supply of new housing (that is, new developments such as house and land, home units and townhouses) and brings benefits to the local building industry and its suppliers.

The effect of the more restrictive policy measures on developed residential real estate is twofold. Firstly, it helps reduce the possibility of excess demand building up in the existing housing market. Secondly, it aims to encourage the supply of new dwellings, many of which would become available to Australian residents, either for purchase or rent. The cumulative effect should be to maintain greater stability of house prices and the affordability of housing for the benefit of Australian residents
