Q: I’m buying a second property. Should I buy through a trust set up to protect this property?
A: My personal view on this is to not worry about buying via trusts until you either have four or more properties or have reached the land tax threshold (NSW is $352,000.00).
If you buy via asset protection discretionary trusts the trust gets no tax benefits but it does protect the asset.
Property investors that are in the early stages of building a property portfolio need all the tax benefits possible they can get to advance them faster.
