Unfortunately, many owners and leaseholders of commercial property miss claiming their depreciation deduction as they simply didn’t know about it.

Commercial Property Building Owners

Commercial building owners are entitled to claim and can be substantial tax deductions for capital allowance and depreciation of the building known as Division 43 and any brand-new or existing plant and equipment assets known as Division 40.

In many cases totalling tens-of-thousands in depreciation claims with some totalling hundreds-of-thousands in depreciation claims.

By claiming the depreciation deduction per financial year, this has helped building owners with their cashflow!

Commercial Property Leaseholders

When a leaseholder takes over quite often, they complete their own fit-out that represents their business.

This allows for leaseholders to claim depreciation for any structural improvements or additions made to a building known as Division 43 plus for plant and equipment assets known as Division 40 that they paid for and installed.

By claiming the depreciation deductions per financial year, this has helped leaseholders with their cashflow!

“Whilst the ATO does prescribe effective lives for commercial assets, quantity surveyors are qualified to revalue assets and ascribe new effective lives each time an asset changes hands.  This means that a quantity surveyor is able to value an asset based on its actual condition and future use and attribute new values and effective lives, potentially increasing your tax deductions for depreciation and immediate write-off.” – Mark Wilkins, Director – Capital Claims Tax Depreciation.
