Taxmail - Kiwi bach: new tax rules for mixed-use assets 

Issue 1, July  2012


In the 2012 Budget, the Government confirmed it would tighten the rules for taking deductions on assets used privately and to generate income (“mixed-use assets”).   At the time, the details were sketchy. 


However, a statement by Revenue Minister Peter Dunne (PDF: 1MB) sheds more light on the proposals.  Interestingly, the proposals include the intention to ring fence losses if the asset does not generate enough income.

Taxmail discusses the proposed mixed-use asset rules, including the impact of the proposed loss ring-fencing, which is targeted at those mixed-use assets with low levels of income.


This is an indication perhaps that these are considered to be essentially private assets, rather than signalling the wholesale return of loss ring-fencing.
