Tax Depreciation Schedules

Capital allowances may offer the owner of income producing property considerable relief from taxation. We aim to calculate the maximum value of the allowances that are available to claim against assessable income.

All items in our schedules are supported by legal argument which is based on our knowledge of all relevant statute and precedent case law surrounding these allowances.

There are two main types of allowances defined in the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997:

1. Depreciation Allowances (Division 40) which apply to ‘Depreciation Assets’ in the building such as Removable floor coverings, heating & hot water systems, Air-conditioning units and security services, etc.. all of which may be claimed at higher rates.

2. Capital Building Works Allowance (Division 43) for capital expenditure on the Building Works and Structural Improvements. The allowance is based on building costs at the date of construction.

Generally the building allowance is claimed at the rate of 2.5 % however, if the building is used for manufacturing purpose, the rate of 4.0 % may be adopted
