Excellent Facilities and Location, Delivers Investors of the Panorama Apartments Depreciation Bounty

Situated in the heart of Brisbane’s entertainment precinct, close to vital business and health services with stunning views, the Panorama Apartments are delivering excellent results for investors through depreciation allowances.

Earlier this month, our Property Tax Analyst inspected Panorama Apartment, developed by the Arden Group, which includes 256, one and two-bedroom apartments across 27 levels,

Residents receive access to a range of top-class facilities including gym, rooftop pool, sauna, outdoor cinema and entertainment area. Investors are entitled to claim depreciation allowances for a share of these common areas, along with car parking, foyers, lifts, bathroom rooms and even the mail room.

In the depreciation reports compiled for property investors, our Property Tax team identified up to $19,261 in depreciation allowances, for both the Building and Plant and Equipment items, during the first year. The depreciation benefits will continue at a diminishing rate for up to 40 years.

 These included standard depreciation items such as:

  • Air conditioning, ventilation fans
  • Kitchen exhaust, range hood, stove, oven, and dishwasher
  • Fire controls, security systems 
  • Hot water systems, dryer
  • Carpets and blinds
  • Vehicle controls

Plus a share of common Plant & Equipment items including:

  • Pumps and filtration systems for pool 
  • Sauna equipment 
  • Furniture and fitting, BBQ, plant pots and planters 
  • Television receivers
  • Kitchen equipment 
  • Artificial grass and matting, and rugs
  • Fire extinguishers, detection alarms, hoses and nozzles
  • Gym equipment
  • Lifts and elevators 

The Panorama Apartments are just one of the many projects our Property Tax team is working on to help investors gain a greater return on their properties. To find out how you can benefit from depreciation allowances, contact our team.
