We understand the importance of cash flow for real estate investors and specialize in assisting our clients with obtaining PAYG withholding variations. These variations allow you to receive your tax benefits regularly, improving cash flow and making investment property ownership more affordable.

The benefits of a PAYG withholding variation include:

- Cash flow improvement: A downward PAYG withholding variation reduces the amount of PAYG tax withheld, accounting for additional tax deductions such as tax-deductible expenses and depreciation from your investment property. This ensures you have more cash in hand regularly rather than waiting for an annual tax return.
- Building a property portfolio: This variation can be particularly beneficial for those looking to expand their property portfolio, as it helps make additional investment properties more affordable.
- Depreciation claims: Furthermore, claiming depreciation can further enhance your cash flow.
It's important to note that a PAYG withholding variation, or Section 221YD, does not replace the need for a normal tax return. You will still need to consult an accountant at the end of the year to calculate the actual amount of tax owed.

Our Services:

At Newcastle Accounting Services, we provide expert assistance and guidance with the application and calculation of Section 221YD and other tax deductions. Our goal is to ensure you receive your tax benefits as soon as possible, allowing you to focus on growing your rental property portfolio with peace of mind. Contact us today to benefit from our specialized services tailored to your rental property needs.

Welcome to Newcastle Accounting Services, where we understand the intricacies of Capital Gains Tax (CGT) and its impact on your financial portfolio. CGT is a tax levied on the profits generated from the sale of capital assets such as property, shares, cryptocurrency, managed funds, and collectibles.


Real estate (including your primary residence, subject to certain conditions)
Shares and securities
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum
Managed funds
Collectible items such as art, coins, and jewelry

Reporting a capital gain to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is crucial, and it must be done within the financial year in which the asset was sold. The reporting process occurs within the tax return of the asset owner, whether it's an individual, company, unit trust, discretionary trust, family trust, or self-managed super fund (SMSF). Each structure has distinct tax treatment and offsets, emphasizing the importance of seeking expert advice to minimize your tax liability.

When preparing and lodging your CGT return, it's essential to enlist the assistance of a knowledgeable tax agent. A tax agent possesses the expertise to ensure the accuracy of your return, maximize the deductions and offsets you're entitled to, and provide guidance on strategies to minimize your CGT liability. Moreover, they ensure your compliance with relevant tax laws and regulations.
