I'm hoping someone has been in a similar situation, or can offer some advice.. I have been looking for a PPOR in Sydney for the past while, but may have to move back to the UK at some stage down the track. I'd like to turn this into an IP and hopefully have the rent cover the mortgage. The plan would likely be to return to Australia in later life with a decent portion of this paid off. I'd make this my PPOR again for at least 6 months. What tax implications am I up for here? I will be working in the UK but I gather I'll be a foreign resident for tax purposes due to rental income. Will I still be able to claim the usual IP tax benefits such as interest/strata/management costs even though I won't have Australian income besides the rent? How would this work if I had to contribute extra to the mortgage during the early years? Cheers!
