PIPA Accreditation Program
This program has been developed by PIPA (Property Investment Professionals of Australia) as an industry benchmark of knowledge and skills for individual investors and professionals in industries involved with property investment. The six modules can be done individually or as a complete course to deliver education for anyone wishing to develop and expand their personal knowledge on property investment, or look for a career in property investment advising as a Qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA®).
Welcome to Module 3: Elements of Property Investment Advising. This is the third module in the QPIA Course. The module will assist your clients to achieve an understanding of the taxation and financial implications of a property investment strategy. The concept of gearing (from a taxation perspective), as well as other tax-related issues, are covered in this module. The concept of capital growth and cash flow are also covered here.
Australia has state based legislation which differs regarding subdivisions, land use, and zoning as well as differing leasing and tenancy legislation. These differences are covered here in Module 3.
