 What is Rental Coach?

 

Rental Coach is an on-line course for landlords for their rental tax return

Rental Coach is a unique e-learning course that helps equip landlords to understand the numbers of their rental property and help answer all the questions you have related to your rental property.

You will be empowered to understand the numbers of the rental property so that you can make informed decisions.

Through using Rental Coach, you will be equipped with the knowledge to work out:

  • What income from your rental property should go in your tax return (and what you can ignore).
  • What expenses or deductions you can claim in your tax return (and what is not allowed).
  • What best practice is for running your rental property to comply with all the different laws and regulations.

You will also be confident that you are meeting your responsibilities as a landlord and be empowered to understand the numbers so that you can make informed decisions.

The course is written by accountants who are also teachers - learn from our experience in the industry. So you’ll find this course free of jargon and the tricky stuff will be explained in everyday language. You should be equipped with the tools you need so that you can feel confident in completing your own tax return and running your rental property.

What is in each version of Rental Coach?

Depending on the version of Rental Coach that you purchase, it will have different sections - just buy the version that suits your needs!

 

Lite - This contains two sections - Income and Expenses for understanding all the different types of Income you may receive from your rental property, and all the expenses that you can claim on your tax return.

Standard - This contains four sections - The Introduction section, Income, Expenses, and an Extras section for understanding your obligations as a landlord.

Full - This contains all six sections to cover everything you need to understand the numbers of your rental property and be able to complete your tax return.

What does the course cover? Here are all 6 sections.

Introduction - An Introduction that covers what this course is about and some of the important words you will see throughout the course.

 Some of the topics covered are: How do I calculate profit, what is a tax year (an important thing to know), what items of information you will need to do your tax return, and what is available for rent (another important thing to know).

Income - A section on Income explains what income is and what it is isn’t. We also cover other topics related to income such as Mate's Rates, Capital Gains, and how to calculate rental yield to be able to compare your rental property with other properties.

 

Expenses - A section on Expenses which goes through all the common expenses that you will have with a rental property and what expenses you can claim in your tax return. We literally go through the A - Z to make sure we cover everything!

We structure everything with easy to use menus so you can re-visit any topic for future reference.

Tax Time! - A section that will guide you through how to fill out your tax return on-line, getting a tax credit for any donations you have made, and other important things related to Inland Revenue that you need to know.

 

Give it a go! - A section where you can practice what you have learned with a fictional rental property we have created. This section also includes a blank worksheet that you can then use for your own rental property.

 

Extras - A section that covers a whole bunch of extra information that will help you be a great landlord (although we’re sure you already are)!

Some topics in this section are: Boarders and Flatmates, GST (Goods and Services Tax), Tenancy Agreements and what to have in them, Dealing with Bonds, Health and Safety Requirements, when things don't go so well (disputes), and what are you required to do as a landlord.
