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.

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 to offset his Capital Gains Tax.

  • 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.
