Interest payments methods
There are three ways to prepay your interest on your Portfolio Lending loan:
What are the benefits of prepaying interest?
By prepaying next year’s interest on your margin loan you may be able to claim a tax deduction on some or all of your prepaid interest in this financial year. Note: You should seek your own taxation advice when considering prepaying interest.
Provide certainty over your interest rate costs for the coming financial year. Should interest rates rise, your costs do not.
By prepaying interest before June 30 2020, you won’t need to make any interest payments on your fixed loan until June 2021.
What are the risks of prepaying interest?
Choosing to fix all or part of your loan
- Interest rates may fall during the period; an opportunity cost.
- If you choose to repay a fixed loan early, your prepaid interest is not refundable.
Bell Potter offers you the ability to fix all or part of your loan – you nominate how much of your loan you would like to fix.
