Expert Advice with Tyron Hyde - 18/03/2018

In this month’s QS Corner - we launch the National Depreciation Register (NDR)


Property investors are set to save time and money through the launch of the first-ever National Depreciation Register (NDR) in Australia.


The NDR, is an established database that includes residential properties in Australia and their depreciation costs.


Washington Brown has made use of the extensive data it has accumulated over the past 40 years to create the NDR, which property investors will be able to access online, searching for their property in seconds and downloading a report quickly, after selecting the right affordable package for their needs.


The NDR was established in response to the changes to depreciation in the Federal Budget last year, which saw depreciation claims for second-hand residential properties purchased after May 10, 2017 limited to building allowances, with plant and equipment allowances no longer able to be claimed.


The changes left many property investors feeling confused about what depreciation costs they can claim moving forward, but the NDR provides a quick and easy way to find out for each property.


We hope the NDR will save you time and money - find your property today at
