Please find below some basic information that might be sufficient to satisfy your immediate questions.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE FIRST HOME OWNERS GRANT?
- $10,000 grant, for buyers who are building a new home. This includes completed homes from builders that have never been lived in.
- Note. Grants are no longer available for buyers buying an established property. However you may still be eligible for Stamp Duty exceptions as outlined below.
- Stamp Duty exemptions are also available depending on the property:
- Established home less than $430,000 = Nil Stamp Duty (save $14,430)
- Vacant land less than $300,000 = Nil Stamp Duty (save $8,835)
- Tiered discounts are available above these amounts as well.
AM I ELIGIBLE FOR THE FIRST HOME OWNERS GRANT?
- Are you an individual who is over 18 years of age
- You (and your spouse) have never owned property before in Australia
- Are you an Australian citizen or permanent resident
- Do you plan on living in this house for at least 6 months, in the first year of purchasing

Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions most people make in their lifetime. With such an important purchase you need to be making an informed decision about what is available, and what best suits your needs – not just considering what your current bank has available.
At Byfields Finance Solutions we have access to up to 35 lenders. Each with different facilities, features and lending criteria. Some will lend more than others, some are more competitive on price and others are more willing to help if your circumstances are difficult.
When you let Byfields help you through this maze, we will make sure we understand what is important to you. We consider what your circumstances are and what your goals are in both the short and long term, as well as the little things that you may not have even thought of yet. We can then help narrow these options to find the facility that best meets your needs at the most competitive price possible.
Importantly. As we deal with lenders daily, we are able to get you the sharpest rates possible, as we create competition for your lending and are aware of all the specials and offers available in the market.
So whether you want a new home, your dream home or to refinance your existing loan to get a better deal…. Byfields can help.
Property investment has always been a favourite for Australians looking to build their wealth. It is generally considered to be more stable than the stock market, and provides greater returns than what you get from bank interest.
With the right advice, property investment can provide tax advantages in negative gearing your income to reduce tax and has the potential for significant capital growth. However, property investment can be a costly process if not done well. You could be paying much more than you need to, diminishing any eventual profits.
This is where Byfields can help. With access to 35 lenders, our finance experts will find the most competitive Investment loan options available, and guide you through the maze that is the loan process.
Recent changes to the way most banks view, assess and price investment loans, means there has never been more reason to have a Byfields finance expert help you navigate your options, or to review your existing facilities to get the best deal for you – not your bank.
At Byfields we have the added benefit of having access to Accountants and Financial Planners in the group that can help ensure your investment plans and tax structure are set up correctly to maximise your return, reach your goals and ensure you are compliant.

SMSF Investment Loans
In recent years Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) have been able to borrow for property investment under some complex and strict regulations.
Despite these complexities, there are significant financial benefits to buying property in your SMSF which can eventually include:
- Generating tax free rental income
- Zero Capital Gains on the sale of the asset
- Protection of Assets by having it inside your SMSF.
However this kind of borrowing is complex, highly regulated and has many conditions as to what properties are eligible. Add to this recently a lot of lenders have changed or removed their policy on SMSF loans, and it’s imperative you deal with a broker who is aware of these changes and offers to find you the right solutions.
Contact Byfields Financial Solutions to see how we can help you invest in property inside your SMSF.
If you have a business, there are two related points that are imperative to your success:
1) Ensuring you have the capital needed for your business to grow, so you can focus your time strategically on growing the business, not being in the business.
2) Having a finance relationship with someone who understands your business, is contactable and will support you. Ideally acting in your best interest – not your banks.
Byfields Finance Solutions staff have over 13 years’ experience helping all kinds of businesses. From small family businesses with overdrafts, to complex corporates with structured finance arrangements, Byfields can help.

Commercial property is often considered a good investment in that it historically has provided a stronger yield and similar stability to investing in residential property, when compared to other asset classes such as investing in the share market.

Vehicles & Equipment
Financing vehicles, equipment and other assets in your business is an effective way to free up your cash flow and often improve efficiency in your business.
At Byfields, we help our clients obtain the assets they need to grow and improve their business, and ensure our clients get a competitive rate by adding choice and competition to their existing banking.
We help our clients organise the best way to structure these assets and have a panel of lenders who can assist with any asset required: Cars, Machinery, Farming & Earthmoving equipment, fit-outs and sometimes even IT & software.

Property development is an excellent way to realise the value of a block or groups of blocks. However banks have specialised guidelines on how to evaluate the feasibility and strength of potential development proposals.
Byfields staff have experience with Property developments from simple triplex residential sites to multimillion dollar apartment blocks.
We can help guide you through the process to ensure you know from our initial meetings the general criteria required to successfully secure finance and complete a development. Including having the right contact within the banks, and knowing what terms are available in the market to help maximise your return.
