Expert Advice with Tyron Hyde - 16/11/2016
Property depreciation is the loss in value of an asset (building) over time due to wear and tear, physical deterioration and age.
Under Australian tax law, if you own commercial real estate or commercial property that is rented or used for income-producing purposes you are entitled to claim the depreciation of that property against your taxable income.
There are two types of depreciation allowances available: depreciation on Plant and Equipment, and depreciation on Capital Allowances.
 In order to maximise the tax savings on your investment property you’ll need a professionally prepared Tax Depreciation Report or Tax Depreciation Schedule.
