Erskine & Owen have been long-time commentators to us here in HK on the NZ property market. They specialise in helping people create passive income through property investments and provide a comprehensive service, from financial planning, mortgage brokering and sourcing investment properties to property management.
If you have any questions on NZ property and the outlook for the NZ property market, feel free to reach out to them. They'd be happy to help:
Are you a Hong Kong Permanent Resident that also holds a New Zealand Passport? Are you thinking of moving back (or have you already moved back)?
The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong has contacted the New Zealand Society of Hong Kong for participant recruitment for a Hong Kong Research Grants Council funded study on Hong Kong Returnee Families. They wish to speak to returnee families planning on moving out of Hong Kong or who have already relocated.
If this is you (or someone you know) and you can spare an hour for an interview (in person or by phone) then they would very much like to hear from you!
Des Trigg has kindly provided us with his latest NZ Tax Update that covers Depreciation Deductions on NZ Property, and with rates up to 67%!
Of importance to both the offshore and onshore NZ residential & holiday property investor, Des advises of the possibility to use NZ property depreciation deductions to off-set income. And even if you haven't yet claimed, you haven't missed out!

The New Zealand Society of Hong Kong is the only non-profit NZorganisation in HK. Established as the community organisation for New Zealander's living in Hong Kong it is entiely self-funded. Since 1957 it has been run by a committee of enthusiastic and active volunteers(not the same people throughout - we're not that old!)who freely donate their time, skill, talent and effort to organise great NZ events, administer the society, raise funds from sponsors, keep the NZ community in HK together and generally make sure NZ'ers in HK can have a cracking great time - whatever they do.
The benefits of being a paid-up member of the Society are too numerous to list completely, but just to mention a few: member discounts at society events; member benefits; free beers; heaps of warm fuzzies from supporting NZ's community in HK. All this quite apart from the opportunity to hang out with exceptional and amazing folk.
Support your own people, the New Zealanders who live here - join your Society!
