Feel free to discuss with us how we can maximise the available tax benefits from your investment property.

Property tax legislation and how it applies to an individual’s personal income tax situation is complex. The Australian Government and the Australian Taxation Office regulate changes to property legislation affecting hundreds of thousands of investment properties throughout Australia. Our team of qualified and experienced Quantity Surveyors and Tax Analysts understand the property tax implications for you and can help you claim the maximum allowances from your assets.

Understanding Property Tax Legislation

With recent changes to property tax legislation impacting property owners, it’s more important than ever to ensure you are fully aware of what you can and can’t claim as depreciation for your investment property
Newly constructed properties purchased after 9th May 2017 are eligible for capital allowances or depreciation claims for costs associated with the construction of the Building (Division 43), plus additions such as swimming pool, tennis courts, and saunas.  Depreciation allowances on new Plant and Equipment items (Division 40) are applicable. Plant and equipment are considered to be non-fixed items within the property such as whitegoods, carpets, air conditioning, heating, security systems, solar panels, and furnishings.

Older or second-hand properties purchased before 9th May 2017 and earning rental income can still claim property depreciation allowances. To learn more, check out  “ What is Property Tax Depreciation "

Differentiating between Repairs and Capital Allowances / Depreciation

Some property owners confuse Repairs with Capital Allowances. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) will be reviewing these deduction claims closely, so it’s essential for investors to ensure their depreciation schedules are accurate and compliant.
Deductions associated with work on your investment properties are divided into two types – Repairs and Capital Works. Works you can claim immediately are considered Repairs, while Capital Works can be claimed overtime on specific assets. Repairs to existing structures or items in your investment properties can be claimed only in the period they occur.

Deductions on new or existing assets involving the building structure or plant and equipment items within your property are allocated an expected life and, in some cases, you can claim depreciation for up to 40 years. Typically, depreciation is applicable for Capital Works (Building Division 43), and Plant and Equipment items (Division 40) included in new extensions or renovations to existing investment properties.
