    How is gaining income and declaring it tax fraud?

    Renting villa to your mum.

    Downside is property is cash flow positive and I potentially pay tax. Gifts don't reduce the income... Upside is my Mum gets to live in a nice place she could not otherwise afford, with a garden, only a few steps and with a dog. All good. And downside... is my serviceability is now more...

    Renting villa to your mum.

    Been doing this for many years. I get an agent rent appraisal done every few years and from that I deduct 10% for a no-agent arrangement and call that market rent. It is direct debited monthly. I also give my Mum lots of gifts, but that has nothing to do with this.

    Howling dogs

    My 2 just go to sleep. They do however sleep right next to the front door the whole until i come home, don't move at all. I know as i have a dogcam and watch them all day from the office or phone. if i take one dog and leave the other alone, then the soft sad howling starts.

    Fast and slow words

    Nicely put, very succinct. But, still wouldn't make the wife understand.

    borrow funds against your IP to invest in fully franked equities..

    not to criticse the plan, the concept is good, but consider that $23k is 2.3% return on investment, you could loose that in a day. If It's that easy we would all do it. As it happens, i only ever buy shares with redrawn funds, but the source of the funding has no connection to the investment.

    Shorting Aussie Stocks - Does anyone do it?

    buy puts, sell calls, open a cfd position. These are all shorting, just not the short you are probably thinking of. Easy to do, just as effective, just as dangerous, just as easy to loose your dough if you have no plan, or dont follow a plan you have.

    SMS through the internet

    For work, I wrote software to use 4 GSM modem (used to be Nokia phones) to send about 20,000 SMS per year. Each phone has a capped Vodafone plan and cost works out about 2c each. Works both ways and receives SMS as well. Much cheaper than online platforms, but downsides: - you have to...

    Your Property Team- Intensive sessions 2015

    Did the Sydney event happen at all?? As mentioned in another topic, YMYC was all quiet on Monday, not a peep about the Sydney event and no self promotion about Melbourne. I'm sure it would be a very informative day, but perhaps just cost too much.

    Lomas - Where to start?

    yourpropertyteam.com.au Did anyone go to Sydney? That and the upcoming Melbourne event were not mentioned in Monday's Your Money You Call, all quiet.... very unusual to have no self promotion in her script.
