Meet the 2021 Ryman Healthcare Gardener of the Year finalist from Matakana

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Trish Allen is giving away her garden harvest -- again! During the 2020 lockdown, she gave away over 140kg in fruit from her home orchard. This year, she didn’t have fruit to swap but her vegetable garden was packed with winter crops. “I had masses of broccoli, cauliflower, kale, silverbeet and French sorrel. So I gave out a lot of parcels of those to anyone I knew who needed it.”

Main Home Exemptions

Weston & Associates Ltd Chartered Accountants

Hi again

Exemption for your main home under the bright line tax is full of fish hooks .
One example is:
Often clients assume because they are “now living in it” their home (previously rented) is exempt.

When using Trusts the main home exemption rules can be blurred. It is very important you check with your Tax Advisor so that settlement on sale or purchase happens correctly. Done incorrectly there are significant taxation liabilities.

If you would like some independent advice or need an Accountant please call us.
