Over time your property and the plant and equipment within it wear out. The Australian Tax Office (ATO) allows you to claim depreciation on these items every year for the effective life of each item. This will decrease the tax you pay on the income from your investment property, thereby saving you money at tax time!
How do you claim Depreciation Deductions?
A qualified Quantity Surveyor can prepare a simple report called a Tax Depreciation Schedule for your property, which will include all the items in your property that are decreasing in value. Your accountant will use it when preparing your tax return to ensure you receive the maximum tax-deductable depreciation you are entitled to.
Whilst we do not recommend particular tax depreciation companies, clients of All Residential Real Estate have used the following companies to prepare tax depreciation schedules for their investment properties in the past.
