Too often investors miss out on valuable deductions because they don't believe a depreciation schedule will be worthwhile for their property. 

Don't waste time assessing the feasibility of a depreciation schedule for an investment property - leave it to an expert.

Understanding the history of a property, including work completed over time, estimating benefits since purchase, and forecasting future deductions all takes time and specialist knowledge.

Our experts have their head in this space all day and using professional industry tools such as PDSlive, as well as our own custom estimating software we can provide a reliable estimate of deductions QUICKLY and FREE.

Our tip, get in touch with our team regarding any type of investment property.  Old or new, residential, commercial, industrial, retail, any income producing property.

If a schedule exists for a property already, we are happy to do a free review of the deductions identified and advise if the claims are being maximised.

Don't leave your money sitting on the table for the ATO.  You might be surprised at what hidden deductions are available in your investment property.

Use the features of our report to compare depreciation schedules in the market:


40 year forecasts

Our reports forecast a full 40 years of deductions making it a once-off purchase for the life of the investment.

Diminishing value and prime cost

Both methods of depreciation are reported allowing the investor to tailor their strategy to their personal circumstances.

Low cost and low value pooling

We utilise both methods so investors can claim aggressively in the earlier years of the investment when costs of holding are typically higher.

Pre-purchase renovations

For older properties our team will identify any works completed over time and ensure construction, asset values and effective lives are calculated from the most recent completion or install dates maximising all potential deductions.

Inclusion of preliminary and consultant fees

Our asset values include apportionment of preliminary and consultant fees to ensure maximum, legitimate values are attributed to all assets.

Disposal of assets – “scrapping”

Where applicable, scrapping is included as a standard in our depreciation schedules to ensure investor claims for renovations are maximised.  Scrapped items are valued and written at 100% in the year of disposal.

Full estimation of construction and asset costs

Where full costs are not available our team are qualified to estimate the full costs.

Lifetime of free updates

We will update reports free of charge when investors replace/install new assets and provide evidence of the costs of those assets.

If you own an investment property, the best way to ensure your depreciation deductions have been maximised is to use a depreciation schedule prepared by Capital Claims Tax Depreciation. For an estimate of deductions you may be entitled to, or to have your current depreciation schedule reviewed free of charge, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
