And, according to Mousa, the worst part is that of the two out of three that don’t, many don’t understand what it is, why they should know it or are too scared to find out. Complicating the issue still further, according to Mousa, is that a large number do not even realise what the score means as far as dealing with financial institutions goes, especially when applying for financing or loans. Why a Credit Score is Important “It’s not the only factor taken into account, but for those looking to finance a house or a car, or open a credit card, their credit score may play a role in whether they succeed or fail,” Mousa said. He added that the higher the score is on the measured bracket between zero and 1200, the better. It could bolster the chances of success when looking for credit, or a home or car loan. And it doesn’t stop there. Opening accounts with communication and utility providers as well as retail businesses may also be affected by the score. Credit scores are not like straight A’s on a school report which results in prizes for achievement. But although Australian financial institutions are not as quick to do so as those in the US; a top score may provide a better deal with lower interest rates and monthly payments resulting in significant savings in the long term. And on the flip side, Mousa warns a low credit score could not only result in a declined loan application but also cause the credit score to drop still further, increasing the difficulty in applying for loans elsewhere. But the good news, he says, is that credit scores can be changed. RELATED ARTICLE: Property Tax Wealth Advice Accountants Kingsgrove Sydney by Expert Matthew Mousa TLK Partners How to Up Credit Scores and Improve Reports Mousa dismisses the urban legend that checking the score regularly might lower it. Instead, he recommends that it is checked regularly to keep up to date on where it stands. Australians also have the right to access their credit report, on which the score is based, once a year free of charge. This lets them make any necessary changes necessary, like correcting any incorrect information on the report, or adjusting how they service their debt. The list of must-do actions to push up the score includes prioritising the biggest loans, but not at the expense of other monthly loan or account repayments. All, both big and small, must be repaid with the required amount, and it must be done on time. Paying more is even better, as bringing down the outstanding balance will reduce your debt to credit ratio, a plus as far as credit ratings are concerned. What to Do When There's No Score Those without a credit score can build a credit history by opening a credit card and making the necessary payments regularly. However, opening too many can be read as showing an over-dependence on debt and will almost certainly knock the score down a notch or two. Mousa said it was strange that most Australians seemed to know little about dealing with credit and its scores because many rely on credit. The country’s close on 25 million inhabitants (2018) has nearly 16 million credit cards in circulation and 37.5 million debit cards. And one in three Australian home-owners have mortgages.

Roseville Sydney CBD Sports Podiatry Recommends Heat And Ice For Foot And Leg Injuries 2019-05-20T22:00:56Z roseville-sydney-cbd-sports-podiatry-recommends-heat-and-ice-for-foot-and-leg-injuries Should You Use Heat, Ice, or Both for Foot and Leg Injuries? The use of heat, ice or both can be an effective first treatment for foot and leg injuries. But many people are unsure about which to use when, and the topic has generated a fair amount of debate. Using the wrong treatment at the wrong time, however, can do more harm than good, and further, prolong recovery time. It’s important therefore to clarify the conditions under which you should apply heat or ice. We spoke to Mark Lin and Wei Lee Sports Podiatrists at Footwork Podiatry in Sydney to find out the facts. RELATED ARTICLE: Roseville Sydney Sports Podiatry Foot Fungal Nail Infections Laser Therapy Solutions Heat increases blood flow "For muscle spasms, heat is your go-to application," says Lin, "Heat increases blood flow to the affected area, relaxes tight muscles and provides pain relief. Heat application can be a very effective strategy for managing chronic injuries." Lee says, "Athletes will often apply heat combined with massage prior to training or a match. This increases blood circulation and allows the muscles to stretch to optimal length. By increasing the muscles’ range of movement, heat and massage prepare the body for the rigorous exercise ahead." "Applying ice to muscle spasms will only further tighten the muscles, compounding the spasm and increasing the risk of further injury," Lin concludes. So when should you use ice? Lin says ice application is very effective for alleviating inflammation and soothing injured tissue. "Inflammation is seen as swelling, redness and tenderness to the touch in the affected area. This is an indication that the capillaries that run through the tissue have been damaged and are leaking blood and other fluids into the area." This damage is what causes inflammation and the use of ice is strongly recommended as a treatment. "It’s important to note that ice should always be wrapped in a cloth or towel before application and not be applied directly onto the skin," says Lee Methods for applying ice and the time intervals for application vary depending on the type of injury sustained. You should, therefore, consult with your practitioner before using ice treatment, to ensure that the injury is treated correctly. Using heat to treat inflammation or an acute injury can increase tissue bleeding and swelling, as heat causes the blood vessels to dilate. When heat is incorrectly used in a situation like this, it will exacerbate the condition and lengthen recovery time. When should a heat and ice combination be used? Lin says a combination of both heat and ice application is only recommended under certain conditions. "In the event of a torn or ruptured muscle, it should first be treated with ice to ease inflammation. Only once the inflammation has subsided can heat be used to relieve pain and speed up healing, by increasing blood flow to the area." "A technique utilising alternate hot and cold baths can be used to resolve inflammation and swelling, but once again it’s recommended that you seek professional advice before attempting this. If done incorrectly, you will run the risk of causing further damage," warns Lin.

Investor and Property Acquisition Tax Investment Specialists TLK Partners Sydney 2019-05-19T22:00:28Z investor-and-property-acquisition-tax-investment-specialists-tlk-partners-sydney Does Cash Rule When Buying Investment Property? When considering how to pay for an investment property a number of factors have to be taken into account. One of the toughest is deciding whether to pay in cash or take out a loan or mortgage to fund it. According to TLK partner Matthew Mousa in Sydney, it’s very much a case of choosing which hat fits best for achieving the long term goal behind the property investment, will be most comfortable in the long-term, and keep its shape whatever the weather. When the Numbers Count Choosing the wrong payment could prove disastrous for any of those 1 in 10 Australians who own investment properties. But it is especially tough on three out of four, or close on 75%, of those investors, who own only one. These include young Australians trying to get a foot in the property ownership door while renting elsewhere. But mostly they are made up of mothers and fathers looking to build a retirement nest egg, and who choose (or can only afford) to put all their eggs in a single investment property basket. Their savings and financial futures are tied up in this one-time purchase, and its failure as an investment could be disastrous. RELATED ARTICLE: NSW CGT Chartered Property Tax Investor Accountant TLK Partners Kingsgrove Sydney The When’s and Why’s of Paying Cash Those that pay cash face less stress should the rental market experience a downturn, there’s a recession, or the investor has a minor cash flow hiccup. With a fully paid and operating rental property, there’s always the security of a rental income, even if it has dropped due to these outside forces. Full ownership also keeps open the option to live in it, or the choice to sell it to raise capital. And, best of all there is no need to pay loan or mortgage repayments when the cash flow is taking a knock. Cash also talks loudly when it comes to buying the property in the first place, improving chances of finalising a deal quickly, and getting a bargain in the process. And it cuts down on the frustrations and time involved in negotiating a mortgage or loan. However, Mousa warns that paying cash for the property carries huge risks. It only works if the investor is able to pay for it and still have a large enough left over balance, to maintain the property, pay the necessary levies and taxes, ride the ups and downs in the rental sector, and cover other unexpected expenses such as those spells when the rental stands empty. RELATED ARTICLE: Property Tax Wealth Advice Accountants Kingsgrove Sydney by Expert Matthew Mousa TLK Partners When Mortgages And Loans Fit Best While there can be no choice but mortgages and full or partial loans when an investor does not have access to the amount of cash needed to pay the full purchase price. But they can also be the best choice when the balance after the cash purchase would not be high enough to cover all contingencies. But mortgages and loans have other advantages. They maintain asset liquidity, allowing access to assets when needed, and removing the need to raise a home equity loan against the property during tough times. And they also provide financial leverage because, should the property’s value rise, the return on investment is higher. This is because the increase in value is measured against the amount of cash invested as a deposit, rather than the much larger investment made when an investor paid the full purchase price in cash. Mousa points out that when it comes to choosing to finance for a long term investment like property, it can prove to be both time-consuming and frustrating. The pros and cons, and expert advice such as that provided by TLK Partners' property acquisition division, need to be taken into account before an investor, and particularly a first-time one, makes a decision.

Property Investors Split Income Advice Chartered Accountants Sydney NSW Are Investor and Property Acquisition Investment Specialists 2019-05-19T22:00:12Z property-investors-split-income-advice-chartered-accountants-sydney-nsw-are-investor-and-property-acquisition-investment-specialists Property co-owners and the income split When two or more investors own a rental property together, whether it is rented out all year round or only part-time, the division of rental income is defined by the legal interest that each owner has in the property. Property acquisition and tax expert Matthew Mousa of TLK Partners explains the two different categories this legal interest fall under. Is the legal interest as joint tenants or tenants in common? Co-owners who are Joint Tenants divide the income and expenses related to that property on an equal 50/50 basis. The interesting point to note here is that division of income and expenses in terms of legal interest overrides any verbal or written agreement that the two owners may have. “It is irrelevant if one is earning more than the other and would like to incur fewer taxes by claiming a greater proportion of the rental loss,” Matthew explains. “The division must be in terms of legal interest.” Co-owners who own the rental property as Tenants in Common may have an unequal legal interest in the property, for example, a 30%/70% split. “If this is the case, you would then divide the income and expenses related to the property in terms of your legal interest, in this case, 30% and 70%, again regardless of any other agreement you might have made with the other owner.” Anyone unsure of whether they fall into the category of Joint Tenant or a Tenant in Common should reference the title deed to clear up the matter. RELATED ARTICLE: Private Investors Property Income Has Tax Implications Says TLK Partners Expert Matthew Mousa When is an investor considered to be running a rental property business? Matthew explains that the tax man considers someone to be an investor who is not necessarily engaged in a rental property business, as long as the person doesn’t spend an inordinate amount of time engaged in rental property activities, doesn’t co-own very many properties, and doesn’t derive their income exclusively from the rental property. If someone is deemed to be in the rental property business, the agreement between the partners takes precedence over the legal interest in the properties. The income and expenses associated with the business must be divided in terms of the partnership agreement.

Financial Expert Thomas Mousa Says Election Outcome A Win for Business 2019-05-18T22:21:47Z financial-expert-thomas-mousa-says-election-outcome-a-win-for-business Morrison Answers Business Owners Prayers NLP leader and devout Christian, Scott Morrison, had his prayers answered last night in an election victory of biblical proportions. The shock win has been described as a ‘miracle’ by Australian political commentators, which saw the NLP defy the polls with major swings in Queensland and Tasmania ending opposition leader, Bill Shortens, political career. “I believe in miracles,” Morrison said in his victory speech. While the win may not appear to be in the same league as ‘David and Goliath’ or ‘Noah’s flood’, but for the majority of Australians and business owners, it just may be. We asked financial expert Thomas Mousa, director and partner of Sydney based TLK Partners, to comment on the effects of the NLP’s win for businesses. The NLP’s primary election policy was tax cuts. Tax cuts will provide tax breaks for more than 10 million Australians and simplify the system by removing the 37 per cent tax bracket entirely. “The implication for business is simple, lower PAYG tax implications as the tax brackets are adjusted,” Mousa said. The measures will cost the Treasury $158 billion over 10 years. “From July 2022, the government will raise the 19 per cent tax bracket from $37,000 to $45,000 and from July 2024, the plan is it will reduce the 32.5 per cent rate to 30 per cent and do away with the 37 per cent rate,” Mousa says. “Ultimately, this will make a flat 30 per cent tax rate for anyone earning between $45,000 and $200,000, which is a much-simplified tax system,” Mousa stated. The NLP’s simulations demonstrate a worker earning $200,000 a year will get a tax cut worth $11,640 compared with $1205 for someone earning $50,000 a year. Either way, the outcome for businesses is a win for cash flow. RELATED: TLK Partners Kingsgrove Aged Care, Financial Assets Specialists and Wills Retirement Experts Explains Estate Planning in Sydney Another key election promise of the returning government for business is an Instant asset write-off. Businesses with revenue greater than $50 million can write-off assets against their taxable income. Previously, businesses with revenue greater than $10 million were excluded from the scheme. The NLP has also increased the threshold from $20,000 to $25,000. Medium businesses stand to benefit more from the new expanded instant asset write-off than their smaller counterparts who are required to elect to use simplified depreciation to access the write-off. Mousa comments, “This is great for medium-sized business, however, a small business entity that does not elect to use simplified depreciation may be excluded from accessing the instant asset write-off both under the small business and medium-sized business definitions.” “A more beneficial change for small business owners would perhaps have been to extend the instant asset write-off to all small business entities irrespective of whether they elected to use simplified depreciation for small business or not,” Mousa says.

Political pundits are praying that Scott Morrison, having now won the vote of Australians in his own right, will have a period of political stability as Morrison is the seventh Australian Prime Minister in 11 years. And the people said, "Amen."

Property Tax Admin Deductible Accountants Sydney NSW Are Investor and Property Acquisition Investment Specialists 2019-05-18T22:00:56Z property-tax-admin-deductible-accountants-sydney-nsw-are-investor-and-property-acquisition-investment-specialists Property Tax: What admin fees can be claimed? Continuing its focus on immediately deductible expenses with regard to rental properties and tax, Matthew Mousa, tax expert and partner at TLK Partners in Sydney, takes a closer look at some of the administrative expenses rental owners can deduct immediately. RELATED ARTICLE: How Part-Year Rentals Affect Property Investors Tax Claims Says TLK Partners Expert Matthew Mousa Corporate body fees and charges Matthew explains that body corporate fees and charges are normally split into two different categories i.e. fees for day to day administrationas well as a general purpose sinking fund, and maintenance and contributions to a special purpose fund. “Rental property owners are allowed to claim for fees used by the body corporate to administer and maintain the rental property, as they can reasonably be considered legitimate expenses in maintaining the rental property and improving the generation of rental income,” Matthew says. Likewise, contributions to a general purpose sinking fund are permitted, as the general purpose sinking fund is used by the body corporate to fund maintenance of a capital nature of the common property. Examples of this use would be the repainting of the common property. However, contributions to a special purpose fund, generally assumed to be used for additions and renovations to the common property of a capital nature, are not claimable as deductions, Matthew warns. “In this case, owners would only be able to claim contributions to this fund under the capital building works regulations according to which deductions are usually spread over a period of several years.” Lease document expenses Costs incurred during the preparation, registration and stamp duty on a lease agreement are deductible in relation to the use of the rental property for rental income. This also applies to the surrender of a lease in areas of Australia where most property is held from the crown on a 99-year leasehold. Property agent’s fees and commissions Owners of rental properties are allowed to claim any fees and commissions charged by a rental property agent or manager for the management and inspection of the property, and for the collection of rent on their behalf. They are not, however, allowed to claim for expenses charged by an agent for the acquisition or sale of the rental property. "As stated earlier, all these expenses are viewed as immediate, and owners are allowed to claim them in the year they were incurred," Matthew concludes.

Property Tax Deductible Accountants Sydney NSW Are Investor and Property Acquisition Investment Specialists 2019-05-17T22:00:10Z property-tax-deductible-accountants-sydney-nsw-are-investor-and-property-acquisition-investment-specialists Property Investor Advice: Interest, Land Tax and Other Deductibles In examining immediate deductions associated with rental properties, TLK Partner and property acquisition tax expert Matthew Mousa takes a closer look at certain areas like interest, council rates, land tax, legal expenses, tax-related expenses and mortgage discharge expenses. Interest on loans The interest charged on a loan raised to acquire an investment rental property is deductible. If, however, the owner changes his mind and decide to use the property for personal use, they can only deduct the interest charged on the loan until their intention for the property changed. “As long as the property is rented, or available for rent, you can also claim the interest on loans used to purchase depreciating assets, repairs and renovations,” Matthew clarifies. “The deduction applies from the time you take out the loan, even if you use the loan to finance major renovations on a property you intend to rent out to tenants when the renovations are complete.” As of 1 July 2019, Australian investors will lose the right to claim all expenses, including interest, associated with the holding of land intended for income producing assessable future income. "It's referred to as an 'integrity measure’ to be introduced to wipe out fraud, whereby investors had been claiming the deduction of interest on land that had not ultimately been used by that investor as an income-producing asset," Matthew explains. However, most banks in Australia offer loans that can be used to buy a rentable property and, at the same time, get a new car. In this scenario, he says, property owners may only deduct the proportion of the interest on the loan used to buy the property - the interest charged for the section of the loan used for buying the car may not be deducted. RELATED ARTICLE: CGT TAX Accountants Sydney NSW Are Investor and Property Acquisition Investment Specialists Land tax The critical thing about land tax deductions involves the time-period for which the owner is liable for it. “This is not dependent on when you submitted a return, or when the tax office issued an assessment. Instead, it involves a strict relationship between what tax year the liability occurred in, and what year’s rental income it can be deducted against. These two must match completely,” Matthew says. The timing of land tax liability differs from state to state. In many states, the liability is for the period during which the owner used the property to generate rental income. “A land tax assessment can be made, and an arrears land tax assessment issued, but this might not be done in the same year during which you were renting the property out to tenants,” Matthew explains. If an owner receives an arrears land tax assessment and pays the arrears, the land tax deduction must be against the rental income for the same year the arrears tax assessment in which it refers. So if the arrears assessment refers to rental income earned in 2017, an owner can only deduct it against that year’s income, even if the assessment was only issued, and paid, during 2019. If the investor sells the property, and there is a land tax adjustment, the owner will need to declare the amount they get back as an income for the year in which this pay-out is received. Legal expenses Matthew says, legal expenses are deductible for the costs incurred for evicting a non-paying tenant; the legal fees for court action for loss of rental income; and defending damages claims for injuries to a third party incurred on a rental property. Other legal expenses relating to the purchase or sale of the property and defence of a title deed, are deemed of a capital nature and so are not deductible. Mortgage discharge expenses Mortgage discharge expenses generally involve penalty interest payments for discharging, or paying off, the mortgage early. This penalty interest is deductible if a mortgage secured the money loaned to purchase the rental income property, and the owner’s ability to pay the mortgage off would be affected by the inclusion of penalty payment for doing so. Matthew says, "The mortgage discharge expense is also deductible if the penalty interest payment was made to free the taxpayer of having to continue to pay interest on the loan."

How To Deal With An Overheating Car Engine 2019-05-17T11:05:36Z how-to-deal-with-an-overheating-car-engine Vehicles today are structured with engines that produce ground-breaking measures of warmth.

Property Acquisition Investor Aged Care Investment Financial Planners Sydney NSW 2019-05-17T06:56:08Z property-acquisition-investor-aged-care-investment-financial-planners-sydney-nsw How to Make your Investment Property Work For You Traditional property investment may hinge on the long-term returns it brings in terms of capital growth. But for many Australian investment property owners, the short term returns provided by rental properties are their reason for buying the property. They don't have the time or money to wait for the property value to grow and provide capital gains. But for a rental to be successful, and that rental income to flow, the property has to be operational and occupied as soon as possible, says Matthew Mousa, TLKPartners’ financial and property acquisitionadviser. Why Australians Invest in Property Investment properties account for more than a quarter (or 2.6 million) of Australian dwellings, and most are individual investments. The owners' reasons for investing in the first place are varied. But the most common one according to close on 80% of 1,000 survey respondents was, “I want to set myself up financially for the future”. Other popular responses claimed it was more beneficial than shares, tax benefits, retirement preparation, and negative gearing, in that order. A far smaller 33% cited capital gains as the reason for investment. Yet more than half their owners are claiming losses on their tax returns. RELATED ARTICLE: Millennials Investment Property Advisor Chartered Accountant TLK Partners Kingsgrove Sydney Open for Business Immediately Mousa says that tenants are the lifeblood of property investment, and determine its success or failure. However, many first time investors seemed to be unaware of the urgency to get the property running and occupied. Instead, they are spending too much time (and money) on unnecessary renovations and touch-ups or beautifying the premises in the belief that this is necessary to attract the right tenant. Instead, Mousa says the most crucial requirement is that the property is available, it's in good condition, and it is clean, safe and functional. Unnecessary extras and frills are unlikely to push up the rent, and may even be a deterrent should potential tenants not feel at home with the style. He says the vacancy rate in the area largely controls the rental rate and advertising spend, and the number of tenants looking for a home. And the type of tenant a property attracts is mostly governed by its location. Unless a low vacancy rate replaces choice with desperation, tenants will opt for rentals in areas which provide security, ease of access, and convenience. Students will look for a place close to the university, and office workers will want the shortest commute to work. Families, on the other hand, will probably opt for a house close to schools, shopping centres and hospitals. RELATED ARTICLE: Impact Of ALP Tax Change Proposals By Aged Care, Estate Planning and Private Wealth Management Accountant Financial Expert Thomas Mousa of TLK Partners In Sydney Keeping the Property Working Post-occupation maintenance of the property is vital, according to Mousa, both for the owner and the tenant. If maintenance is handled correctly and timeously, it can encourage good tenants to stay long-term and provide a stable rental stream, instead of packing their bags and leaving which could result in a break in the income flow until another tenant is found. And proper maintenance will not only keep the property in shape and the tenant happy, but it will prevent its market value from sliding down. For maintenance to be kept up to date, a capital budget is needed, preferably amounting to about 5% of the annual rental income. This is to cover the costs of small projects like replacing blinds, gutters, smoke alarms and so on, as well as bigger ones that arise less regularly, like a bathroom or kitchen, refurbishment, painting the property, or replacing an appliance like a stove or fridge. RELATED ARTICLE: Private Investors Property Income Has Tax Implications Says TLK Partners Expert Matthew Mousa Think Long Term Finding the right tenant, one who pays the rent regularly and on time, who keeps your property clean, and doesn’t cause a nuisance, may seem like a dream come true for a property investor. But keeping one is even more important, says Mousa. Making the tenancy work for the owner involves having the right background checks and systems in place when choosing a tenant, so as to protect the rental business and income. Making it work for the tenant calls for the owner to provide them with a comfortable home on a well-maintained property, be consistent and professional, charge a market-related rent with reasonable increases, and attach fair terms and conditions. "Property investors trust TLK Partners to steer them in the right direction and to assist them in maximising their return on investment," Mousa concludes.

AASW supports International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) 2019-05-17T00:07:39Z aasw-supports-international-day-against-homophobia-biphobia-intersexism-and-transphobia-idahobit On 17 May, the Australian Association of Social Workers recognises the importance of this date and issues raised by IDAHOBIT, as we continue to take a stand against discrimination of the LGBTIQ community. It marks the day the World Health Organization made the decision in 1990 to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder. AASW National President Christine Craik said, “Today is the day before a Federal election. We call on the next government to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy’ across the nation. “As social workers, we have noticed that the use of these discredited therapies has actually been on the rise in Australia. It is a situation we have been monitoring. As a profession, it can sometimes be our job to help un-do the damage that these so-called ‘therapies’ can cause to families and individuals.” Ms Craik said much action is still needed to counter discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in Australia. “We are saddened and disappointed that homophobic, biphobic, intersexist and transphobic views continue to be broadcast, and that they are given air time in our media and community,” she said. “We only have to look at highly influential but misinformed media commentary which led to the ultimate disbandment of the Safe Schools program nationally. We want to see the Safe Schools program reinstated in its full scope and we urge the next government to do so. These programs save lives.” Ms Craik urged Australia to promote human rights and counter homophobia, biphobia, intersexism and transphobia internationally. “There is much influence that Australia has abroad, particularly in our part of the world. It would be great to see our political leaders taking a diplomatic stance on Brunei, which recently introduced and then retracted the death penalty for homosexuality. It is still illegal though. It is good to see the recent boycotts have gone some way to working. Brunei is a fellow Commonwealth country and one in our region. Now is the time for political leaders to flex diplomatic muscle and use it to promote human rights.” Christine Craik is available for interview.
