What does a Perth depreciation schedule look like?
A tax depreciation schedule example is simply a booklet or pdf breaking down the amount you can claim.
There are two types of depreciation that you can claim.
Firstly you can claim the capital works allowance, and secondly, you can claim the depreciation on the Plant & Equipment assets.
Remember, you have to have the property as an investment property to claim the depreciation.
You can not live in the property and claim property depreciation.
Most people receive their depreciation via email these days, so it looks more like a pdf than a booklet.
What is included within the Capital Works allowance?
The capital works deduction refers to the structure of the building.
This structure can be claimed over 40 years from when the property was built and is also known as the Division 43 depreciation.
Let’s say you buy a 10-year-old property in Perth; you can now claim the original building cost for the next 30 years at 2.5% per annum.
SO if your property cost $100,000 to build ten years ago, you would be able to claim $2,500 for the next 30 years if you acquire that property today.
What is included within the Plant & Equipment?
Plant and Equipment items refer to those included within a building that are more easily removable.
This is why they have a shorter effective life.
This means that it’s not expected to last as long.
Plant & Equipment items include carpets, Ovens, Blinds & Dishwashers etc.
