How does GST get recorded for rental properties?

There's no GST to pay on rental income from long-term residential renting.

You also cannot claim GST on your long-term rental expenses. So essentially, as a property investor, you can't collect GST on the rent charged to a tenant, nor claim GST on any expenses you incur, even if you’re registered for GST.

As myRent was built for NZ residential landlords we don't record or account for GST on any reports we generate.
