Tax depreciation is a frequently overlooked method of obtaining tax deductions with large financial benefits.
An investor not claiming depreciation could be likened to leaving the property vacant.
Smart investors can optimise their investment returns by maximising their allowable claims. Even the cost of the tax depreciation schedule is fully tax deductible.
Depreciation schedules can be used to successfully claim eligible tax deductions. Your tax depreciation schedule will be compiled by a highly qualified quantum surveyor (tax agent)- This is the only occupation recognised by the ATO who can provide such a service.
You can claim depreciation of buildings and structural improvements.
Buildings, pergolas, fencing, paving, driveways.
Plant items will increase your claim significantly.
Appliances, floor coverings, window furnishings, heating and air conditioning.
