Positive Cash Flow Property

This is an investment property where income (usually derived from rent) is greater than the sum of all the expenses of the property. Effectively, you are receiving more rent each cycle than you are paying in expenses.

In this structure, each property pays for itself and can provide investors with additional equity and the opportunity to then purchase other investments.

Negative Cash Flow Property

A negative cash flow property, or what is often called a negatively geared property, is when your income is less than the sum of all your expenses – or in other words, the rent does not cover all of your costs.

This structure can offer a number of tax benefits in the form of tax deductions and is popular among investors that are making the most of capital gains. Your investment strategy will depend on your income and it is very important to talk to your accountant about the right structure for you.
