Michael’s numbers without a depreciation claim
Michael’s numbers with a depreciation claim of $15,700
Without depreciation, Michael was only generating $55 of weekly profit from his warehouse investment. However, by taking advantage of the Australian Tax Office’s tax breaks and making a depreciation claim, he started generating $167 each week – which is $112 more than before his depreciation claim.
This means that Duo Tax was able to save Michael a total of $5,809 in the first year of owning the warehouse.
The great thing about his depreciation schedule is that it’s valid for up to 40 years! So, Michael can continue saving money each year, as long as he continues to own the warehouse.
