    Dumb question.

    I need access to redraw funds on an IP loan for a legitimate tax-deductible (but not property related) expense.

    How can I get these funds to the third party and maintain deductibility without refinancing or splitting the loan (I don't have the time to do this).

    If it's a deductible loan - and the funds are being redrawn for deductible purposes.....I'd assume it would all remain deductible. Hit up your accountant though.

    Cheers

    I agree with Jamie, just make sure it doesn't pass through an account with personal funds.
    I have read a bank cheque being mentioned before.

    Won't be deductible unless you are onlending at the same or a higher interest.

    What you would do is enter into a loan agreement with the other party. Then split the loan down the track.

    What if he was buying shares, for eg? Could he just buy them and use a spreadsheet to keep track of things?

    Oh, I read it he was giving to a 3rd party such as a spouse who would invest.

    If investing in shares directly then the same principles apply. Borrow to invest, transfer from the loan account to the brokerage account and then just apportion the interest by using a spreadsheet. Won't matter if you get it wrong as the tax will be the same overall.

    No, I am paying an expense related to my primary profession/business.

    I need the money to go directly to the company providing the service.

    So, one can transfer redrawn funds directly to a non-linked account by the sounds of it.

    Or, even better, can I pay the expense on a credit card with nothing else on it, then transfer the redraw to the credit card, and still claim the redraw? I'm trying to get redraw funds rather than use those offsetting non-deductible interest. It's a reasonable amount of coin.

    Yes if the cc has no other expense you can refinance this debt by borrowing. Don't go via any intermediary account but pay directly from the loan.

    Just avoid debt composting.

    What does that mean Terry?

    I can only guess piling and piling it up without ever paying it (or the non-deductible debt) off in it's place.

    Not sure what it means yet as I just made it up. But it could relate to mixing purposes and letting the deductions dissolve.
