If such disclaimer is prohibited by law, we limit our liability (to the extent permitted by law) to the re-supply of such information.

Our products and services are only available to Australian residents unless otherwise intended and Australian law applies to those products and services.

The information contained in this website is general only and is not intended to provide you with financial advice or take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. You should consider with a professional adviser whether the information is suitable for your circumstances. Nothing on this web site is intended to be an offer for interests in any joint venture development.

The hypothetical examples are illustrative only. Your actual taxation benefits and ongoing holding costs will vary depending on your personal circumstances. Any discussion of taxation issues constitutes general information only which does not take your personal circumstances into account. Before making any decision whether to purchase a property you should seek your own independent professional advice (including taxation advice) tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. Credit criteria, conditions, fees and charges apply.



The outputs from the graphs and tables depend on the information inputted and the assumptions below.


Annual expenses and income are calculated proportionately, to be consistent with the time period selected. Any information about tax is a general statement and should be used as a guide only. It does not constitute tax advice and is based on current tax laws and their interpretation. Your individual tax position may differ and you should seek independent professional advice on any taxation matters.  Graphs and tables are intended to give a general indication of the cash flow impacts of you buying a property. We give no guarantees that economic and property market conditions and your personal circumstances will actually turn out to be in line with the assumptions or the outputs from the graphs and tables. Graphs and tables consider the expenses and income for a period of one year only, and no allowance is made for wage inflation, or investment income on capital. You should consider the potential longer term impact of these factors when reviewing the affordability of a property over a horizon longer than 1 year. The outputs from graphs and tables do not constitute an offer or a quote.
