Imagine undertaking financial feasibility studies for property development projects and property investments with consummate ease on your Apple Mac desktop, laptop or notebook, i.e. without much prior feasibility software tuition but with plenty of 'thinking' already done for you and lots of easily-accessed help available to you.
Feastudy 2 for Mac is now updated for the new (2018) Australian “GST at Settlement” laws. Consequently the program assumes that, at the settlement of each purchase of a “new Residential property” from a GST-registered developer, the purchaser must remit to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) either: seven (7%) of the purchase price of that property if the Margin Scheme (MS) applies to the transaction; or all of the GST that applies to the purchase price of that property if the Full Taxation (FT) method of GST applies to the transaction.
Please note that below on this page, Feastudy for Mac Professional is mostly shortened to “Feastudy Professional” and Feastudy for Mac Lite to “Feastudy Lite”.
Feastudy Professional is for investigating:
Feastudy Lite is an industry standard software tool for developers and valuers to investigate:
Feastudy Professional and Lite versions can quickly, accurately and comprehensively calculate and display the following reports for all types of development proposals:
Comprehensive financial information for an investment proposal is given in similar types of reports in Feastudy Professional, taking into account, among other things, the investor's:
Graphs for development proposals are also available for viewing on-screen and printing to paper from both versions of Feastudy.
When the user enters his or her required IRR and/or margin criteria, after all other relevant variables have been entered, both versions of Feastudy can be used to help determine the residual value of a development site for a particular development proposal and Feastudy Professional can also be used to determine the residual investment value for an 'already developed' investment proposal.
Feastudy Professional provides the following features, which are not included in Feastudy Lite:
Feastudy is user-friendly in that it enables easy entry of data in a logical and consistent fashion, gives explanatory text for all data inputs, provides context-sensitive help for all data entry windows, allows convenient functions for creating, copying and deleting cost or income items in lister windows and gives on-screen and hardcopy report information in a comprehensive and easily understood format.
The price of one licensed copy of Feastudy Professional is AUD$770.00 and one licensed copy of Feastudy Lite is AUD$440.00. Both prices include one year’s Program Maintenance and Support Services for your program copy and, during that year, comprise:
(a) any updates of the program which generally include any relevant corrections to but may contain some
enhancements of the software;
(b) any upgrades of the program which generally include enhancements of the software; and
(c) all reasonable operating and technical support for your use of the software.
You can trial the interactive Feastudy Professional demonstration program in Enhanced mode, which allows you to create new feasibility files, edit them and demo files, save all edited files, and print all reports and graphs (with a demonstration watermark across them) from those files for ten (10 days), by downloading the demo program from our website's Download page and installing it on your Mac, however you will require a Password to do this. Please use our Contact Us form to get in touch with us and we will email the password and other relevant details to you.
You may wish view the 15-minutes-long Feastudy 8 Demonstration Video, which demonstrates how a residential development feasibility study can be done using the current PC version of Feastudy. The graphical user interface [GUI] of the Mac version of Feastudy Professional is of course different from that of the PC version of that program but, most importantly, the video illustrates those things which are common to both the Mac and PC versions of Feastudy Professional and they are: the type of data that is required to be entered into Feastudy's data entry windows, access to the application's Help file, and the format of the on-screen reports for Feastudy’s Development files. (BTW, the formats of the printed reports and graphs from the PC and Mac versions of Feastudy for the same type of file are exactly the same.)
