Notes: (*)

  1. Deposit Contribution - is your own cash contribution towards the property purchase. You may reduce your deposit amount by simply increasing your loan amount in the input page.

  2. If the Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) is greater than 90 per cent we have taken the assumption that an additional security property (cross securitisation) will be used as most banks will limit the borrowing to 90 per cent LVR for investment purposes on a single property (the resultant LVR will be 90 per cent or less) hence the Lenders Mortgage Insurance will only apply if total borrowing is between 80 to 90 per cent LVR. No lenders mortgage insurance premium is calculated if the LVR is below 80 per cent or over 90 per cent.

  3. Tax Savings - is a result of offsetting the Total Tax Deductions from your annual income hence, reducing your average tax rate (reducing your tax payable) using a negatively geared property. Please note that your tax payable may actually increase if your property is running in cash flow positive - the pie chart will not appear in the case of a positively geared property. The tax payable shown is based on the 2013/2014 tax scales excluding the Medicare levy.

  4. Depreciable items - these amounts are estimates and will vary for individual properties.

  5. Annual Interest Payment - is based on a fixed rate loan type with interest only payment option. Interest rate shown is a current average market 3 year fixed rate.

  6. Please note that the actual tax benefit and your cash flow position will alter when using an alternative interest mortgage rate other than the one used herewith.

  7. Confidence Rating Risk Scale - is based on the owner weekly contribution as a percentage of the weekly total property funding costs. Green Alert represents a favorable result (within a conservative range of owner cash flow contribution), Orange Alert represents caution (the owner cash flow contribution is regarded to be high), and Red Alert representing the Highest Risk (the owner cash flow contribution is very high which may effect owner surplus income position and jeopardise financial capacity and stability).
