Residential rental properties

If you rent out property, you need to:



.


  • keep records right from the start
  • work out what expenses you can claim as deductions
  • work out if you need to pay tax instalments throughout the year
  • declare all rental-related income in your tax return
  • consider the capital gains tax implications if you sell.

 


If you have an investment property that isn't rented or available for rent, such as a holiday home, then you generally can't claim deductions because it doesn't generate rental income.
To download a PDF guide on how to treat rental income and expenses, see our rental properties guide.
