New Rules for Reporting Income Tax on Rental Properties

From the 2019-20 income year, you can only claim deductions on the amount of income you earn from your rental property. All deductions must be ring-fenced, meaning any excess deductions (or losses) will be carried forward and added to other property deductions in a later income year. You cannot use excess deductions from your residential property to reduce your other income, such as salary and wages or business income, which would result in a reduced tax liability.

  • The new ring-fencing rules apply to all residential land (including overseas based properties) unless it falls under one of the exemptions, such as if the property is your main home
