It is currently going through the ‘bill to law’ process, which starts with a select committee and then ends up before Parliament for the final stage. In other words, although it’s not law just yet, it looks pretty likely to pass and once approved will apply to the current tax year (end... read more

The Government wants to ring-fence rental losses. What can you do about it?

Make a submission of course! Let's be clear. At the time of this piece, ring-fencing is not a done deal. There is still time to push back and affect the Government's legislative agenda. Submission on this issue closes 28th February 2019. It is our opinion that, in its present form, the proposal will have far-reaching consequences many of which are unfavourable to investors, their tenants... read more

John Paynter: Some thoughts on ring-fencing rental losses from the landlord's perspective

There is the widespread belief that residential landlords make large profits with minimal effort and negligible risk. This is quite untrue. My gross income from investments is probably about the same I would get if I was once again employed in the corporate world.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
