New Zealand Investment property


New Zealand Local time


South Africa Local time


The good news for South African investors -

  • No capital gains tax

  • No land transfer tax

  • No stamp duty

If the property is rented out and shows a positive return, tax may be applicable.

The cost of finance is deductible from the income received and the resulting profits are taxed at New Zealand rates. This can also be credited against domestic tax in SA under a South Africa/NZ tax agreement. We are happy to arrange for advice on structures for New Zealand property ownership which can be held personally or through a company or trust.
