  2. The income tax treatment of housing assets: an assessment of proposed reform arrangements

    Author(s): Alan Duncan; Helen Hodgson; John Minas; Rachel Ong; Richard Seymour

    Description: This research models several politically acceptable pathways to reform negative gearing and CGT so as to reduce impacts on less sophisticated property investors. Two reform models— a rental deduction cap of $5,000 and a progressive rental deduction based on income—could lead to savings of over $1.7 billion each. Both are progressive in nature, reducing tax savings from negative gearing as tax assessable income increases.

  3. Understanding opportunities for social impact investment in the development of affordable housing

    Author(s): Andrea Sharam; Michael Moran; Chris Mason; Wendy Stone; Suzanne Findlay

    Description: This research examined social impact investment (SII) in social and affordable housing in Australia. It considered US and UK models, together with interviews with government experts, social impact investors and not-for-profit housing providers, to inform the analysis. In Australia, the funding gap between tenants’ capacity to pay and the cost of providing housing is the most significant barrier to SII.

  4. Paying for affordable housing in different market contexts

    Author(s): Bill Randolph; Laurence Troy; Vivienne Milligan; Ryan van den Nouwelant

    Description: This study analysed recently completed affordable housing developments across Australia to ascertain how affordable housing project costs, revenues and subsidies interact. The research reveals the diverse funding arrangements adopted by providers, which have resulted in affordable housing project outcomes being driven by funding opportunities rather than by defined housing needs, and identified six key lessons about financing affordable housing.

    Description: An independent evaluation of the Queensland Government Department of Housing and Public Works pilot project with Brisbane Youth Service which provides mobile support services to assist young people aged 16–25, who are in social housing and are at risk of losing their tenancy and becoming homeless, to sustain their social housing tenancy.

  7. Pathways to state property tax reform

    Author(s): Richard Eccleston; Neil Warren; Julia Verdouw; Kathleen Flanagan

    Description: Reforming state and local government property taxes can contribute to a fairer and more sustainable housing system as well as delivering additional economic and social dividends. This research proposed a nationally coordinated incremental strategy with clearly defined short, medium and long-term objectives, including administrative reforms; a simpler and fairer revenue neutral transfer duty; and replacing transfer duties with a broad-based recurrent property tax.

  8. Supporting vulnerable households to achieve their housing goals: the role of impact investment

    Author(s): Richard Heaney; Paul Flatau; Kristy Muir; Gill North; Libby Ward-Christie; Eileen Webb; Kaylene Zaretzky

    Description: This study explores how social impact investment (SII) has been used for housing and homelessness objectives internationally; examines three case studies where SII has been used in Australia; and considers finance structures, such as impact investment mutual funds, that would enable social impact investors to create a portfolio of affordable housing securities that can balance financial and social return.

  9. Government led innovations in affordable housing delivery

    Author(s): Steven Rowley; Amity James; Peter Phibbs; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Laurence Troy

    Description: This project examined state government-led innovations in affordable housing through analysis of two state-level strategies and two state-level programs. The research shows effective strategies and programs rely on strong political leadership; adopt a whole-of-housing industry approach to consultation and implementation; communicate objectives effectively to all stakeholders; are resilient to changes of government; and are best run from a central agency with a flexible organisational structure that can respond quickly to opportunities.
