Myth Busted!

Old properties aren't worth a depreciation schedule

Time and time again, we hear of investors who have missed out on tens of thousands of dollars in legitimate tax depreciation deductions because they believed their properties were too old to be eligible.  The myth of old properties not being worth a tax  depreciation reports is busted day after day by leading tax depreciation specialists.

Myth Busted!

All depreciation reports are the same

Not all tax depreciation schedules are equal. Whilst the ATO prescribes standard rates for effective lives of construction and plant and equipment items, the varied methodologies used by depreciation service providers can result in thousands of dollars of difference in the final schedule outcome. A quality depreciation schedule improves the cash-flow position of a property, sometimes substantially, and can impact on the overall investment strategy adopted by investors.

Myth Busted!

Accountants can take care of depreciation

Accountants are not qualified to estimate construction costs, which includes more than just materials and construction labour.

For example, accountants are not qualified to estimate construction works and associated costs of previous works over the life of the property.
