Wondering what is the tax rate on super componnent? As I need $ to live thinking investing in property or stock market may be a preferred option to rolling over. I haven’t applied for Centrelink - single and currently surviving on limited but declining savings. Thanks J

Q:

I own a small rural property on the outskirts of a small rural community. The house is the former railway masters cottage for the now defunct railway line. The railway line has been recently transformed into a walking trail. A councilor from the local council contacted me yesterday & said that the council has approved plans for a former railway station to be moved immediately adjacent to my house literally meters away as a tourist attraction. Can I stop them?

Hi. I have already bought an investment property from the available funds of offset bank account for a mortgage home where I live now.
To keep new house on investment officially I contacted NAB bank. NAB bank is ready to swap over the property title-papers but advices that I will not be able to take advantage of tax benefits by doing so because govt tax officers check what was the purpose of the home loan originally? Please advice me now how do I take advantage of tax benefits?

Hi. My husband and I have agreed to separate after a ten year marriage. For the past five years I have been a business partner for our painting business. Admittedly he put in most of the hard yards and is definitely the boss !! Since I have been his business partner I have not earned a wage yet now he is basically saying I am entitled to nothing financial when I leave. I don't want to take him to cleaners but surely this can't be right ?

Hi, we were looking at renting a boarding room for our son with the licensing agreement being in my husband and my son's name. My husband has signed it but my son hasn't as we aren't sure if we want the room now. We have paid a holding fee, bond, next weeks rent and a licence preparation fee. The real estate agent says that we will have to pay a break licence fee and continue to pay rent until someone else takes the room even though we haven't moved in. Is this correct? Thanks Rhonda

Q:

I use a bookkeeper for my business BAS, and an accountant for my tax. The bookkeeper enters all the business data on an Excel spreadsheet which I give to the accountant with the rest of my information. I've discovered that the bookkeeper has made a major error every year (for 6 years) by entering my receipts incorrectly, so I have paid a lot more tax than I should have. The accountant has had the original documents as well as the spreadsheets. Should he have checked the spreadsheet data??Thanks!

Q:

We have an offer on an investment house that we are selling. The buyers have commissioned a building inspection report, at which time the inspector told them that the HWS system was leaking (this is not mentioned in their written report). The special conditions on the O & A state that all plumbing must be in working order. The hot water system is in working order. Do we need to fix the leak or replace the HWS. If the leak cannot be fixed (Solar HWS is very old), do we need to replace it?

Q:

Hi all,

First time user.

My income is three times that of my wife. We also have kids. We are looking at an investment property and were wondering does it matter who we put our investment property under and who collects the income?

We were also looking at possibly putting the investment property and our principle place of residence in a trust. What would be the benefits of a trust?

I appreciate your help with the above.

Q:

Hello

I am managing director of a company in SA.
Basically there are unauthorised creditor invoices that have been entered in to our internal accounting system.
We are not being actively pursued for the money, there is no written legal warnings and the claimed debt may be over a year old in some cases. Is it legal to process a credit in our internal accounting system so risk of inadvertent payment is averted and aged creditor is not exaggerated; without written approval from the Creditor ?
