Expert Advice with Tyron Hyde - 1/06/2015


In this QS Corner we release the world’s first Renovation Depreciation App (Niche I know!)

Have you ever carried out a renovation on your investment property and wondered how much you could claim in depreciation?

Or perhaps, you want to carry out a renovation and are trying to make the numbers stack up but dont know how much depreciation you can claim?

Well, do we have the app for you!

We have just launched the worlds first renovation depreciation calculator!

Our brand new app enables property investors to enter a value of the proposed renovation and quickly work out the potential depreciation deductions.

You can also compare the deductions available, for instance, when doing a kitchen versus bathroom renovation.

The app is available for both Android and Apple users.

Download the app through a link on our website or head to the usual places such as the Apple App Store or Google Play to find the link.

Search for “Renovation Depreciation Calculator” and not surprisingly the app will be the first one that shows (yes, its pretty niche - but Im pretty proud of it).

I welcome any feedback or improvement ideas and can be contacted on:
