Without depreciation, Isabella had to pay $45 out of her pocket each week. However, by taking advantage of the Australian Tax Office’s tax breaks and making a depreciation claim, Isabella started pocketing $27 each week.
This means that Duo Tax saved Isabella $3,737 in her first year of owning the investment property.
The great thing about her depreciation schedule is that it’s valid for up to 40 years! So, Isabella can continue saving money each year as long as she owns the property.

This is an accounting tool designed to help estimate and calculate the declining value of capital works and plant and equipment assets and relies on accurate figures to present accurate estimations.
