What is defined as investment property is a building or a mixture of both that is owned or leased under a particular party or parties for the purpose of earning rental or capital appreciation or a mixture of both. The use of labour hire for the property may also figure into the main equation where this definition is concerned. You can learn more in-depth information about labour hire from AWX’s blog.

The most common type of investment property that is found in this situation is land held for long-term capital appreciation. Some would refer to it as a land bank. Another common type of investment property is land held for some future purpose or event unknown that is a yet to be determined use. There may be some labour hire involved with this land investment to keep it up for valuation purposes. 

Yet, another land investment property type is the building under lease for an operating lease. Another type is the vacant building which can also be leased out under an operating lease. Investors purchase land as an investment property even though construction is in progress on the property and even development for use in the future as an investment.
The use of labour hire will be a common event as long as the event is properly connected with the investment property that is held for commercial use.

Reasons for this type of property maintenance will involve property interest held by the lessee with an operating lease. The operating lease can be taken into account as per the definition in the IAS 17 document. The document regarding the lease information will be factored in as if it were a finance lease. These leases will be counted as fair market value per lease. 

A note should be taken about partial ownership. When part of the property is earning rent or is maintained for partial owner use with separate income per section, this property can be counted as a separate income with partial investment income. This also applies to partial use of capitalization appreciation. 

Ancillary services will only be counted depending on the proportion of the services rendered to occupants of the property. Depending on the amount of service given, this will determine what if any degree the entity offers a service relationship. If it is an appropriate service relationship then the degree of service rendered will determine the degree to which this property is an investment property. If it is then partial, the calculation of partial investment property is made.
