After one whole year of doing podcasts, I realised that we haven’t really talked about any accounting or tax topics. Probably not one of the most exciting topics but it’s something that everybody needs to know about because creating wealth is not just about what money you make but how much you can keep so minimising taxes is essential. 

So I invited the best person to tackle this topic today, Stuart Wemyss — a leading financial adviser with over 20 years of experience.

Today, we talk about the three phases of a property’s life, and the tax considerations for each phase.Stuart also gives us some tips on how you can minimise tax and enlightens us on how we can make better investment decisions today.

Let’s kick off the year with an insightful conversation and be sure to tune in next week for Part 2.
