Interest Limitation Rules 2023 - 9 March 2023 (On Demand)


The interest limitation rules apply from 1 October 2021. For some property investors, interest deductions are being phased out from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2025. For other property investors, interest has ceased to be deductible from 1 October 2021.

The interest limitation rules apply to a broad range of residential property, but there are exceptions. The latest Tax Bill includes an additional exception for large-scale “build-to-rent” developments. There are also a number of exemptions to these rules, including for new build land, land owned by dealers, developers and builders, and for some subdivisions.

This webinar considers the application of the interest limitation rules, including who is affected by the new rules, what type of property the new rules apply to, when the exemptions apply, and what issues arise in applying the rules in practice. Consideration will also be given to restructuring borrowings to minimise the impact of the rules.
