At Duo Tax, we understand that value and outcomes of the depreciation schedule is most important to any investor and hence we provide an immediate guarantee of depreciation over the phone. This then allows you as the investor to work out feasibility before we even leave our office to undertake the work. Ultimately providing you with free consultation prior to commencing any work.

All properties purchased within the last 2-4 years, yield plenty of depreciation no matter the age of the building. This is due to the fact that the ATO allows you to claim depreciation on older properties even if it’s built in the 1960’s or 1970’s. Albeit, they are limited to claims of plant and equipment (referred to as Division 40 – ITAA).

How can I get started?

To receive a rough estimate, you can use our rental property depreciation calculator to discover how much you should expect to receive in tax deductions for each full financial year. Alternatively, you can give our office a call or send us an email to with your rental property’s address, this will allow us to search and estimate the depreciation for a 2 year period. This then guarantees your tax deduction prior to commencement of inspection. Once you’re happy liaising with one of our depreciation experts, they’ll assist you with your report. Otherwise order online via our Order a Depreciation Report page.
