Investors are hoping to save money on their investments as the Government’s tax holiday comes into force.
But what are these investments and where do you invest them?
Read moreThe investment tax holiday will mean the Government will provide tax breaks on investments from July 1st.
The Government has promised to make sure these investments are taxed, so investors will have a tax break on the value of the investment in a tax-free manner.
However, they can also use the tax break to pay for the tax benefit, as well as to avoid paying the tax.
The Government says it will encourage people to take advantage of the tax holiday, and the Government says people can take advantage by making investments at the right time of year.
Investment tax holidays are also in place for pensions and annuities.
However, a recent study by the Tax Institute of Australia (TIA) found there were no plans to extend the tax breaks for these investments, with most investment tax holidays being extended from January to April.

If you want to avoid the tax burden on your investment, consider investing early in the year.
The study found the best investment timing is to start with low-cost or low-interest bonds or a low-risk investment like a local property.”
However, if you want the tax relief to last beyond the tax year, then it’s a good idea to invest early in 2019,” the TIA said.”
The tax relief will apply to both the capital gains and the interest on those bonds.
“It is also possible to take the tax advantage and then use the interest to repay the principal.”
What is the investment tax relief?
The investment holiday applies to: The investment in property or land The construction or acquisition of a property or businessInvestment in investment bonds, mutual funds, mutual fund companies or investment schemesThe purchase or sale of a bond, fund or businessThe purchase of shares or shares in a fund or companyInvestment interest in a business, including shares and shares issued by a corporationInvestment income of more than $1 millionInvestment profits of more or less than $25,000The investment has been declared taxable in the past.
To get the tax exemption, the investment must be worth less than: $2,500The amount you would have paid tax on before the investment is taxable in AustraliaThe investment is declared taxable and the capital gain or loss is less than the amount you have paid in tax before the tax-saving period.
The TIA also found that the tax savings are mostly for low-income Australians, who will have to pay more tax on their investment income.
