Track rental property income and expenses with MyBMT

Our new tool helps you stay on top of your investment property paperwork

MyBMT’s new ‘Income and expenses’ tool makes it easy to record and track property costs, so you don’t forego any deductions at tax time.

The 'Income and expenses' tracker has specific categories like body corporate fees, cleaning costs and insurance to simplify your expenditure. The income and expenses are formatted in line with the Australian Taxation Office and MyGov to provide consistency and ease of use for you and your accountant. It also calculates your net rent, can add in the depreciation values from your report and shows your total outlay so you can stay abreast of your financial position.

Weekly, fortnightly or monthly emails can be set up to update your expenses, ensuring you stay on track.

Once your rental property income and expenses are recorded, you can download a copy of an annual report. This can be shared with your investment team by clicking the ‘Email my accountant’ button. Not only does the new feature benefit investors, it makes it easy for your accountant when they complete your tax return.

Use income and expense information within PropCalc

The information from MyBMT’s new ‘Income and expenses’ tool can be used in PropCalc to calculate the cash flow required to buy and hold a property.

PropCalc allows you to customise data and factors in rental income, the number of weeks rented, annual income and any depreciation claims available for income producing properties.

It also accounts for a range of expenses such as interest, stamp duty, the deposit amount, insurance, council and property management rates, body corporate fees, repairs and maintenance costs.

The data provided by both PropCalc and the ‘Income and expenses’ tool can help you to maximise your cash flow and expand your investment property portfolio.
