4 Bedroom House Built in 1973

A Case Study of savings from our expertly prepared Depreciation Schedule.

The facts, and figures

Nick purchased this four-bedroom house for $495,000 in June 2020

Renovations completed by previous owner in 2014 were kitchen, laundry, bathroom, deck and built-ins

Nick is receiving $420 per week with a total rental income of $21,840 per annum

Without a tax depreciation schedule, Nick’s tax deductible expenses per financial year for the property totalled $32,460

Nick’s tax bracket is 37%

After applying the tax depreciation schedule, in the first full financial year in 2021 Nick’s after-tax return was $1,072. Weekly cash flow back to Nick is $20.67.

The outcome

Nick contacted Capital Claims Tax Depreciation who provided a detailed tax depreciation schedule.  Nick was entitled to claim in tax depreciation deductions $2,599 in the first financial year and $12,995 across the first five financial years of ownership of his property. Total deductions claimable over the life of the property equal $115,965.

Also Nick’s property falls under the current legislation where a value is assigned to existing plant and equipment assets – Division 40.  This may help reduce Capital Gains Tax when the property is sold.  If Nick sells his property in 7 years, he is entitled to claim $17,984 in Division 40 depreciation to offset his Capital Gain.
