Michaela’s numbers without a depreciation claim
Michaela’s numbers with a depreciation claim of $12,200
Without depreciation, Michaela was only generating $5 of weekly profit from her warehouse investment. However, by taking advantage of the Australian Tax Office’s tax breaks and making a depreciation claim, she started generating $92 each week – which is $87 more than before her depreciation claim.
This means that Duo Tax was able to save Michaela a total of $4,524 in the first year of owning the warehouse.
The great thing about her depreciation schedule is that it’s valid for up to 40 years! So, Michaela can continue saving money each year, as long as he continues to own the warehouse.
