Uh... good point!
How about better from a tax point of view?
Which is better out of these two structural options:
1. Investment Bond (or Insurance Bond)
2. Your own Company (not a trustee...
I got one of these and did the opposite to you, certainly not a pre-requisite to financial success though as you suggest.
Hopefully you will get it tenanted soon then.
If not, I'd give it the flick and focus on getting the debt against the PPOR down ASAP.
Marc's PPOR will likely only be a holiday rental, so it maybe better for him to just take on a boarder or two?
Marc... is it time to sell this IP? (seeing as you can't sell the business)
Want to put up a link to it, someone else who knows the area may...
Agreed. I'd only put commercial property and shares in a DT, and nothing fancier than that.
I think some of the promoters of this structure have now moved on to pushing Land Tax Unit Trusts instead... which will be a great money earner...

Hmm... and expose yourself to paying capital gains tax twice?
Once at redemption and again when the DT decides to sell later on?

Thanks Terry, so what is the difference between a capital payment to a trust and a gift to a trust... ?
Can't you just do a ''capital payment'' from the beneficiary to the trust?
So here you are not charging any interest to the trust and the trust...
Thanks Rob, how about a guarantee only without putting the security up as well?
If the security is used as well (eg. shares if the trust buys...
Does the trust have to guarantee the loan as a guarantor?
Or do you create a mortgage document?
What is the alternative to this then?
btw Terry, you have some awesome qualifications, but seriously the worst website I have ever seen! (PS: checkout WordPress)
Yes I believe so.
We just discussed this a few days ago:
Thanks for the replies. I've checked the loan agreement and sorted this out.
Thanks, this is what I am doing, no net tax benefit to me.
