Property Depreciation Schedules - The New reality

Our Inspection Process – TaxMax500

At Washington Brown, we try to make the inspection process as smooth as possible for you. Once you have provided the Required Information to us, that’s all your work done! We set out about organising the onsite inspection.

This begins with getting in touch with the Access Contact you have put down – often your real estate agent. From there, our inspector will organise a time to inspect that suits the tenant, aiming to complete the inspection within a week in most cases.

Our inspection process is designed to maximise your depreciation every time, and it’s taken over 20 years to perfect the art.

All our inspectors use our digitally powered quality assurance process – the TAXMAX500 – which evaluates every property across 500 variables, and is constantly updated as ATO policies change.

A standard inspection involves our inspector measuring the dimensions of every room, nook and cranny, documenting each and every one of the fittings, fixtures and built in assets within. In fact, we’ve created an app that ensures our property inspectors can’t proceed from one room to another without documenting and photographing particular items from a very specific list.

It doesn’t finish there, our inspectors will also make sure they inspect and evaluate the common areas, basement/garage area and amenities. You’ve bought a share of these areas, we make sure you claim it!

By putting these checks and balances into place, using our 20 years of experience, we can guarantee to get you the maximum deductions – every time.
