Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Gas Compliance Certificate
A Certificate of Conformity issued by an authorised person as defined in the Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 made by the Minister of Labour under section 43 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993, to the effect that the gas installation on the property conforms to the required health and safety standard. The cost of the certificate and any repairs that need to be made are for the sellers account and is required by law for the property to be transferred to the buyer’s name.

Also called leverage. The degree to which an investor or business is utilising borrowed money to acquire income producing assets. Negative gearing refers to a situation in which the income generated by an asset does not cover the interest on the loan. Positive gearing means the asset produces sufficient income to cover the loan to acquire the asset.

General Lien
A lien such as tax lien or judgement lien which attaches to all property of the debtor rather than the lien of, for example, a trust deed, which attaches only to specific property.

Geometric Mean
A measure of central tendency calculated by multiplying the series of numbers and taking the nth root of the product, where n is the number of items in the series. The geometric mean is defined only for sets of positive numbers. For example, the geometric mean of 6 and 7 is the square root of (6*7). The geometric mean of 6, 7 and 8 is the cube root of (6*7*8); and so forth.

Geometric Mean Return
It is also called the time-weighted rate of return or the average compounded rate of return. It is calculated by taking the geometric mean of a portfolio’s sub-period returns. Where there is a great variance in sub-period returns, this is a better return measure than the arithmetic mean return. Unlike the internal rate of return, it is not influenced by the timing and weights of money-flows.
