Residential Case Study
4 Bedroom House Built in 2009

Four-bedroom house built in 2009 purchased for $490,000

The 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 for the property 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 $1,955. Weekly cash flow back to Eve is $37.60

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 $4,585 in the first full financial year and $22,925 across the first five financial years of owning for her property. 

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.

  • I have used Capital Claims Tax Depreciation for 2 of my properties. One located in Queanbeyan and the other down the coast. CCTP were able to accommodate both locations. Sean and the team were particularly helpful with our elderly resident at our coastal property showing plenty of patience. The reports were professional,thorough and easy to follow and well worth the cost. If you have an investment property - you need CCTD to keep you up to date.
