About the Property Investment Calculator

(NEW) Updated for the interest deduction reinstatement announced by the National-led Government in late 2023.

With the National government announcing a phased reversal of interest deductibility, we have released a new version (v9) in Jan 2024. You specify the interest tax deductibility threshold to be applied for each of the next 3 years. For a new build or social housing, simply put all 3 years at 100%. 

The calculator does not consider any actual dates, so date when the tax deductibility thresholds change relative to today are not factored in. Instead, the calculator works of a simplistic idea of "years of ownership" and shows your assumed revenue, costs, growth etc, for each such unit of a year. You are recommended to seek independent tax advice from a qualified accountant to more precisely quantify your tax liability and make sure you have the optimal structure to invest in property.

Understanding the numbers is the most critical part of your decision process when buying an investment property.  Unfortunately most people spend very little time looking at the cashflows and financials of a property.

Whether you’re buying your first rental property or you have a number of properties, you can use this calculator to help you do the sums.

How it works

You type in figures such as:

  • Purchase price
  • Loan amount
  • Interest rate
  • Various annual costs such as rates, insurance, maintenance, etc
  • Rental income
  • Property management cost
  • Chattels value estimate (explained with an attachment)
  • Annual expected % increases in capital growth and rent.
  • Likewise annual expected % increases in ongoing costs
  • Tax rate

The calculator will (over a 30 year period):

  • Show you how much of the rent will cover the costs of owning the property and how much you will need to contribute (or what the positive cashflow is)
  • Compare the Interest Only and Principal and Interest repayment costs
  • Show you the effect of different levels of deposit 
  • Show you what spending on a renovation will mean for your ongoaing cashflow and equity return
  • Give you an estimate of your potential tax changes (rebate or extra payment)
  • Work out the Gross Cashflow (before tax) and Net Cashflow (after tax)
  • Project your capital growth and cashflows over 30 years
  • Allows for rental increases and CPI.

IMPORTANT

Any tax estimates are high level and this is NOT a tax management tool. It is designed to approximate, over both a calendar year and longer periods of time, what you can reasonably expect to earn in cashflow and capital growth. This is based on a set of inputs like price, deposit and rent, as well as insurance, rates, maintenance, interest rates etc. You are recommended to seek independent tax advice from a qualified accountant to more precisely quantify your tax liability and make sure you have the optimal structure to invest in property. 

System Requirements:
The calculator was made in Microsoft Excel. It has been tested on modern versions of Excel for Windows & Mac
