Re: Tax Tips prior to investement

thanks...

so, again to be simplistic, are there any types of investments (bonds, equities, etfs etc) which are any more or less tax efficient ?

(i'm assuming here the answer is 'no' but I've learned the hard way it's better to ask dumb questions before making a decision)
Berkshire Hathaway would be 100% tax efficient as it pays zero dividend & capital gains are tax free, where bonds are generally bought for income which is taxable in full, going forward when interest eventually rates rise, the capita; value will fall. As Bonds are paying less than inflation they have to be a poor long term investment. Why would you lend money for less than a couple of % above inflation?
