80 per cent of property owners are missing out!

Any owner of a property that generates an income is eligible to receive significant taxation benefits.

“Research shows that 80 per cent of property investors are failing to maximise the deductions claimed from property depreciation and are therefore missing out on thousands of dollars in their pockets,” said Bradley Beer, the Chief Executive Officer of BMT Tax Depreciation.

80% of property investors are missing out on important deductions.

“Depreciation is often missed because it is a non-cash deduction – the investor does not need to spend money to claim it,” said Mr Beer.

As a building gets older, items wear out – they depreciate.  The Australian Taxation Office allows property owners to claim this depreciation as a deduction.  Depreciation can be claimed by any property owner who obtains income from their property.

New and old properties have the potential to attract some depreciation benefits for the owner to claim as a tax deduction.  The widely spread idea that older properties will attract no claim is largely untrue; it is worth having an expert look into any scenario.

Ensuring that the depreciation claim is maximised on any building requires a combination of construction costing skills and a thorough knowledge of tax legislation.  This rare combination of skills has resulted in a limited number of Quantity Surveying firms specialising in property depreciation.

Consult the expertise of a qualified Quantity Surveyor such as BMT Tax Depreciation to maximise depreciation deductions for an investment property.

    Debbie is our accountant and has been for seven years. She is thorough and always does what she can to honestly get us the best return but always adheres to the ATO guidelines. We recommend her to our friends and wouldn’t take our business to anyone else. Thanks Debbie.
