111: Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid of CGT

Why is it that most people avoid Capital Gains Tax (CGT) like the plague?

Well, it’s really all because of perspective.

Capital Gains Tax is a concept people tend to have a lot of fear around because they want to avoid tax altogether when in fact, it’s actually just a concept of business. If you sell a property you have to pay tax.

Today, we dive deep into the topic of CGT from an angle that most people wouldn’t take, that is, the belief that it shouldn’t scare you to think about it at all! We share how you can think about it strategically and how the benefits of your strategy actually outweigh the cons.

We also tackle where CGT is and isn’t applicable…
What Capital Gains Tax really is…
The benefits of holding property for 5 years versus selling it right away…
And heaps more!

See you on the inside!
