Claim depreciation and increase cash flow on your investment property

80% of property investors are missing out on property depreciation deductions. Investment property owners are often unaware of the tax deductions available through property depreciation.

As a building gets older and the items contained within the property wear out, they depreciate in value. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) allows property investors to claim depreciation deductions on the natural wear and tear of assets associated to any income producing property.

Important Depreciation Facts:

  • The property does not have to be new: Most properties, both new and old, will attract some depreciation deductions. A common myth is that older properties will attract no claim. It is worth making an enquiry about any property
  • You need a specialist: Engaging a Quantity Surveyor who specialises in tax depreciation will ensure tax deductions are maximised and increase the cash return for property investors 
  • “The BMT Guarantee” BMT Tax Depreciation guarantees you will receive double the fee worth of deductions in the first full financial year claim or there will be no charge for their services 
  • BMT work with your Accountant: BMT Tax Depreciation will work alongside an investor’s Accountant to complement their service and maximise the available deductions for the investors 
  • Previous year’s tax returns can be adjusted: If depreciation has not yet been claimed, investors can claim back missed deductions from the previous two financial years. The ATO may have to pay the investor money back 

  • Improve your cash flow: Property depreciation can improve cash flow and reduce the cost of owning an investment property. In most cases, depreciation will pay for your yearly management fees and more
