Objective: Help the client make the most of their income and acquisitions by minimising tax before and after retirement
Our clients were successful professionals earning substantial income. Their income also included rent received from a premises occupied by a related business.
As the loan to buy the premises had been fully repaid, the net rental income which was flowing to the husband and wife on top of their professional income, was not insubstantial and was taxed at their high marginal tax rates. Any future taxable capital gains was also likely to be taxed to them also at their high marginal tax rates.
When they engaged CountPlus One, we saw an opportunity to maximise their earnings. We were able to assist them to transfer their property to a self manages superannuation fund at its current market value, without incurring any capital gains tax. When they retire after age 60, they will potentially be able to sell the property without paying capital gains tax on the sale.
As the net rental income is now flowing into their superannuation fund, the income is being taxed at a marginal tax rate of 15% compared to a marginal tax rate of 39%-47%.
