Quantity Surveyor (or Tax Depreciation) Report
Quantity surveyor reports are usually another term for tax depreciation schedules. These reports are one of the ways an investor can maximise their tax return.
A depreciation schedule saves property investors money, by allowing them to claim deductions on the depreciation of their investment property.
Quantity surveyors have been recognised by the ATO as the experts in preparing tax depreciation reports and tax depreciation schedules.
According to the ATO, a quantity surveyor is required to prepare your depreciation schedule where the construction costs are unknown.
Quantity surveyors will estimate the original construction cost of your investment property, as well as identify and value any renovations and Plant & Equipment assets.
Essentially, you can claim depreciation on your investment property just like you can claim the wear and tear of a car. The great news is, you don’t need to incur any additional expenses to claim this deduction each year. In this way, it is known as a ‘non-cash’ deduction.
How much will a Quantity Surveyor Depreciation Schedule cost?
Prices for the Quantity Surveyor schedule vary but range from $385 to $770 depending on location and whether the property needs to be inspected or not.
