Blake’s numbers without a depreciation claim
Blake’s numbers with a depreciation claim of $54,800
Without depreciation, Blake was only generating $315 of profit from his office space investment. However, by taking advantage of the Australian Tax Office’s tax breaks and making a depreciation claim, he started generating $789 each week – which is $474 more than before his depreciation claim.
This means that Duo Tax was able to save Blake a total of $24,660 in his second year of owning the office space.
The great thing about his depreciation schedule is that it’s valid for up to 40 years! So, Blake can continue saving money each year, as long as he continues to own the office space.
