4 Bedroom House Built in 2009

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

The facts, and figures

Eve purchased this existing four-bedroom house for $490,000 in Jan 2020.

No renovations have been completed by Eve or previous owner.  Eve is receiving $500 per week with a total rental income of $26,000 per annum.

Without a tax depreciation schedule, Eve’s tax deductible expenses for the 2021 financial year totalled $33,776.

Eve’s tax bracket is 37%.

When the tax depreciation schedule was included, the first full financial year calculations gave Eve an additional $2,399. Weekly cash flow back to Eve is $46.13.

The outcome

After speaking with her Accountant about the importance of a depreciation schedule, Eve contacted Capital Claims Tax Depreciation.  This schedule outlined that Eve was entitled to a depreciation deduction of $5,785 in the first full financial year and $28,925 across the first five financial years of owning for her property.  Over the life of the report $167,765.

Also, Eve’s property falls under the current legislation where a value is assigned for existing plant and equipment assets – Div 40. This may help reduce Capital Gains Tax when the property is sold.  If Eve sells her property property in 5 years, she is entitled to claim $22,073 to offset against her Capital Gains Tax liability.
