Importance of your Home Loan choice

In Australia, the spring property season is about to arrive. And this year is quite exceptional. As the effects of Corona are fading away, the federal government is introducing numerous grants and incentives to get the economy back on track. Here, we are going to discuss the importance of your home loan.

The price of properties in most prominent cities of Australia has fallen which is another great reason to buy property, especially for the first home buyers. As per the latest reports, the home loans for first home buyers has increased by 14%.

People look for various factors when they buy homes. A good home loan is always the most important factor to consider before buying a home.

  1. You could save a lot of money if you choose a better home loan:
  • Several people don’t believe it but you can save a lot of money if you have an appropriate home loan. The amount of interest that you pay over the lifetime depends a lot on the interest rate and the size of the mortgage. If you have a loan worth $400,000 and the interest is 3.33%, you will have to pay $189,863 and for the same loan, if your interest rate is 2.50%, the total payable interest would be $138,340. This is the amount of difference
  1. Loan affects your required deposit:
  • Normally, you need about a 20% deposit before getting any loan for your home. And if someone has a deposit of less than 20%, most of the banks demand LMI (Lenders Mortgage Insurance) from the borrowers. If you start searching for good loans, you can get various loans with just 10% or even 5% deposits.
  • One thing you have to make sure that if you opt for a bigger home loan, you will get to know repayment will be even bigger. These low deposit home loans are just for making the first home buyers able to get in the market quickly.
  1. Check for the useful features:
  • There are different features associated with the loans. Some of those features are useful and you have to consider it. Some extra costs are also associated with a loan and you need to be aware of them before you get that loan. Always try to get the mortgage having a great rate and other useful features.

Conclusion:

Anyone needs to be very careful about choosing a home loan. The buyers need to be aware of all the features related to the loan you have to opt.

  • This is the final stage of completing your deal. The settlement is a process of transferring the property from one hand to the other via a legal process. Now the seller will give you the keys to your home or apartment. But you have to apply for the grants or incentives before initializing your settlement deals.

Things to consider while buying a home or an apartment

People around the world have different tastes and preferences. If you are planning to settle in a city as there are always job opportunities, better education for your child, etc., you may buy an apartment in the city. But if you love to be in nature and prefer living in a suburb, you should buy a home there. There has always been a long debate over which one to choose, but both these things have different pros and cons. In this blog, we are going to talk about it and by the end of the blog, you can very easily judge by yourself.

As everyone looks forward to getting a loan at this point. We are going to discuss some very essential parts of this deal to make your decision a perfect one. Take a look at these factors to get a clear idea about your future deal.

  1. Money, place, and your lifestyle are the first things to consider:
  • Money is the first thing to consider before buying anything. Buying a home or an apartment doesn’t require a one-time investment but you have to spend money while maintaining your daily life there. After buying the home if you find the daily expenses to be more than your budget, this deal is going to be a mess.
  • The price of the apartment or homes are completely dependent on the place. An apartment in the typical city of Australia like Sydney can cost you around $60,000 (one bedroom) but you can buy a home having 5 bedrooms for the same price if you are planning to settle in the regional NSW. So, you have to choose the place accordingly.
  • Then comes your lifestyle. Everyone has his own way of spending his life. While making a choice for a new home or apartment, you have to look at the locality. Consider the basic facilities like transportation, medical care, and schools, etc.
  1. The situation of the building:
  • There’s a lot to consider when it comes to analyzing the structure and age of your building. First, you should look at the basic facilities like the situation of the doors and windows. Shutting the doors and windows happens very often daily, if you have any trouble with that, it could be a nightmare. Then you have check whether there are any leaks from the roof or anywhere. At last, test the quality and age of other materials like furniture, etc. Sometimes people buy homes at a low cost but and then, they invest a heavy amount on the renovation, this is definitely a bad idea.
  • Go through the rules in that area. There are various places where the residents don’t have full authority to repair their homes.
  1. Beware of the fees that you have to pay:
  • After you have bought the home, there are several costs that you have to pay like insurance and maintenance costs. But these costs vary to the specific needs of the owners.
  • Insurance is for the home as well as the materials in that home. The cost of the insurance for your belongings depends upon the cost of your belongings.
  • If you buy an apartment with strata title, the same authority will cover the insurance where you pay your strata fees.
  • In case you are not aware of the strata fee, you should know that strata fees are paid for the maintenance of things like gardens, pool areas, and waste management.
  1. Identify the chances to add value to the house/apartment:
  • An apartment is cheaper as compared to a house. That is the reason why most of the people prefer to buy apartments instead of a house.
  • If you have a home, there are a variety of renovations that you can make. And all these changes will help in increasing the value of your asset in the future. You should consider it as an investment.
  1. Check the subsidies, grants, and other incentives:
  • There are several incentives available for first home buyers. Especially in the time this pandemic, there are several grants for the first home buyers in Australia. It would be a wise decision to check these out.

Conclusion:

There are a lot of things that you should care about while buying your first home. But these are the five things that you should care about in the first place.

Extension of First Home Loan Deposit scheme and the caps have increased

As we all know that the Federal government helped about 20,000 people to get a new home by giving only 5% of the total cost. Initially, it was for 10,000 people but after that, the scheme was extended and 10,000 more people were allowed to get homes through the same scheme.

Then, all those people got another benefit from the federal government. The caps on these prices have been increased to $950,000 from $750,000. Josh Frydenberg said that all these decisions are being taken because the residential construction industry is about 5% of the total GDP of Australia.

The extension in this scheme will allow another 10,000 people to get new homes. And the scheme is not only for first home buyers but the whole chain involved in this field will be benefited. The tradies along with builders and construction workers, all will benefit from this scheme.

The government has supported first home buyers in many ways. The Government will start providing other 10,000 homes from October 6, and the homes will be ready before 30 June 2021.

At first, you have to apply for this scheme and the eligible candidates will get homes in the cities of Perth($550,000), Brisbane ($650,000), Melbourne ($850,000), and Sydney ($950,000).

Australia has always been one of the best spots for first home buyers. There are several factors that have made Australia gain this reputation. Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19, the economy faced a very tough situation. But all these schemes are intended to get everything on track now. Lending rates are on record low and the government is providing several other schemes. All these situations when combines together create a huge opportunity for the field of construction.

Due to the pandemic, the economy of Australia has got down to 7%. And, there was another prediction from the National Housing Finance and Investment Commission that the housing demand will fall tremendously over the next 2-3 years. That is the main reason behind launching such schemes.

Take a look at the list of caps increased in different states of Australia:

StateCapital CityRest of state
NT$550,000N/A
ACT$550,000N/A
TAS$550,000$400,000
SA$550,000$400,000
WA$550,000$400,000
QLD$650,000$500,000
VIC$850,000$550,000
NSW$950,000$600,000

 

Work from home expense deduction extended till the end of the year

It was a temporary method that was introduced to reduce the tax by up to 80% for those who are working from home. But now this method has been extended till 31 December 2020. This method was introduced in March but it has been further extended because a lot of workers are still working from home and the government is yet to open all the offices like earlier days.

As per the latest report from the ATO, December 31 is not the final date to end this rule, based on the situation of that time, this rule can be extended further than that.

Jon Jeffreys said in a statement that the government took care of the situation as the workers will not face a sudden burden of paying a tax that is double than what they were paying for the last 5-6 months.

Some people think that they can get all the other benefits like desktop, etc, along with this tax deduction which is not true. They will not get any other facility as mentioned above if they apply for the tax deduction. Anyone living in Australia who is working from home is eligible for only one of these services.

All such persons are advised to keep a proper record of these working hours. It is unlikely that ATO will audit this situation but you should keep the record nonetheless.

The shortcut that we are talking about is supplementary to the fixed-rate method of 52% and the real rate of calculating daily expenses. Based on one’s situation, you can choose which method to opt for.

Are you eligible for JobKeeper?

This information is for all those who have applied for JobKeeper. It is time for them to check whether you are eligible for this scheme any more.

A business participant is eligible for this scheme if he is not employed in your business but is active in one of your business’s operation. He might be a person who can manage the sales of your business or he has a say in making the strategy for your business.

Here are all the details of the business participants who is eligible for JobKeeper:

  • He should be a non-bankrupt sole trader.
  • He should be a shareholder in a firm or a director of a company.
  • He should be a partner in a partnership.
  • He should be an adult beneficiary but not a trustee.

And you have to keep in mind that the individual who has been engaged in the business from March 1, 2020, and he should also be active in the fortnight for which the Jobkeeper payment is being claimed. There were some changes introduced in the JobKeeper on July 20, 2020. As per those changes those who are active in child care services can’t claim JobKeeper payments for business participants.

Here are some key points to remember about this scheme:

  • If you have several persons in your company who meet the criteria of JobKeeper, only one person from your business is eligible for this scheme.
  • In case you have nominated one person from your business for this scheme, even if he leaves your business, you can’t nominate someone else who is working for your business.
  • You can nominate someone as an eligible employee or an eligible business participant but not both.
  • Only an individual can be eligible for this scheme.

In this blog, we try to provide all the essential information about accounting and taxation. You can visit our official website for more information.

Families using Granny Flat arrangements will get CGT exemptions

Now all the families living in Australia who wish to care about the elder people (parents) using the granny flat arrangements will get exemptions in capital gains tax.

This rule was introduced by Treasurer Josh Frydenberg. This exception from the capital tax gains will be valid for the written granny flat arrangements in the variation, termination, or creation of that arrangement. This scheme is for those who take care of elders or disabled persons.

This announcement has been made before the Federal budget and the rules described in this announcement will come into effect from 1 July 2021.

This change has been made to make the lives of elders and disabled comfortable. There is a risk that all such persons can face whenever there is a breakdown in the family. More than 3.9 million pensioners along with 4 million disabled Australians will take benefits from this scheme. But if you have some commercial rent arrangement with some elderly or disabled person, you will not get benefits from this scheme.

Last year, this decision was taken to exclude all the CGT from several services that are applicable to the Granny Flat Arrangement. John Jeffrey (Super Australia tax & tax counsel) said that further favorable changes will be introduced in the upcoming Federal budget.

This scheme is for all those who take care of elders in their families. But if some relative is living in your home and you sell your home, in this case, you have to pay the capital gains tax for the gains you just made.

Such exemptions are very necessary for encouraging people to avoid charging rent and informal arrangements. With the help of this latest exemptions, people will build flat for their elderly and stay close with their old age family members.

How can one lodge his tax return

Any tax return in Australia is for the entire year from 1 July of the last year to 30 June of the current year when you are filing your return. But this year is quite different as there is a pandemic situation going on around the world and in Australia. The people of Australia can file their tax returns until 31 October of this year. There are two ways an Australian can do it. They can file their return by themselves to the ATO or a tax agent can do it for them. Be wise in choosing a tax agent for this purpose.

When someone lodges a tax return, the ATO gets information about how much money that individual has earned throughout the fiscal year. Based on this information, the ATO decides how much tax you have to pay. In case you have paid more than the required amount, the extra amount will be refunded and if you have underpaid the amount of tax, the ATO will send you a tax bill for paying the remaining amount.

How to know whether you are eligible to lodge a return:

In case someone has taken out a specific amount of tax from some of his income, he should file a tax return. There are several other rules about this situation as well. You can easily check it by using the tool from ATO called “Do you need to lodge a tax return?” There are several online portals which are not authentic and can harm the interests of the citizens. You can avoid such fake services by linking your myGov account to ATO to check your eligibility. Then, in the list of online services offered by ATO, you will find the official version of Do I need to lodge a tax return? Here are the steps that you can follow to check whether you need to lodge or not?

  • Log in to your account of myGov and then, click on the online services.
  • A dropdown list will open on the screen and you have to select lodgements.
  • Now, click on the option Income tax.
  • Look for the heading outcomes, just under this heading, you will find the option Do I need to lodge? Click on it and select the year for which you want to check it.

How can you do it?

A number of options are available to file a tax return if you are a citizen. Selecting an option depends upon the convenience and situation of the person:

  • MyTax: You can file your tax return using myTax. This is a safe and quick way of filing your tax return. You can save a lot of time if you opt for this method.
  • Go to a tax agent: If you are unable to do it by yourself, you should go to a tax agent for this purpose. But make sure you have selected a registered tax agent.
  • Do it with the help of papers: You can also do it the old fashioned way, using the papers.

In case you don’t need to lodge your tax return, you have to provide some relevant information to complete this process.

Required information for filing your tax return:

  • Statement of income from all your employers.
  • Payment statement from Centrelink
  • Other relevant statements to claim some deductions.
  • Your bank account details.
  • If you are married, you have to include the income of your spouse.
  • Those who have private health insurance have to fill in this information too.

Last date:

There is a fixed date until which you can file your tax return. You can file your tax return before 31 October of this year. When 31 October is on a weekend, you have to file your return until the next working day. For those who have a tax agent for this purpose should provide all the relevant information to their tax agent before 31 October. Though there are some special rules that enable the registered tax agents to file tax returns even after 31 October but you should always contact your tax agent before 31 October.

Those who have difficulties in filing their tax return should contact the ATO immediately. There are several mediums that can help you connect with the ATO.

When you get a bill after lodging your tax return, you can do it before 21 November of the same year. This happens mostly with those who file their returns on their own.

When you have missed the last date of filing a tax return, you should do it as soon as possible. If you have filed your tax return before 31 October, you can pay the tax before 21 November. Whenever you have failed the last date, it is advised to contact the ATO immediately as they can work with you by understanding your situation.

Need help:

There is a free program for those who need help in this matter, but it is for all those who have an income of $60,000 or less. And those who are not eligible for this program can contact some registered tax agents.
