What is Property Tax Depreciation?

As a building gets older, its structure and its assets are subject to general wear and tear. In other words, each year, the value decreases and thus, depreciates. When it comes to your investment property, these items are classified as either Plant and Equipment assets or Capital Works assets.

The ATO allows property investors, who generate income from their investment property, to claim the property depreciation as a tax deduction.

Division 43 Deductions refers to the deductions you can claim in relation to the property’s building structure. The effective life of the building structure of any residential or commercial property is 40 years. This means that you can claim deductions for depreciation over 40 years, provided that you’re generating an income from the property. 

This also applies to construction costs for any improvements or expansion of the building. 

The term “plant and equipment” refers to the fixtures and fittings found within the building and are generally easily detachable from the property. 

The rate at which plant and equipment fixtures depreciate depends on the ATO’s Asset Effective Life Schedule, which gives guidance on how long an asset is effective before it’s worn out. The ATO recognises more than 6,000 different assets that investors can claim tax deductions on.

Claiming tax depreciation on investment properties involves identifying its value, estimated construction costs, and fittings and fixtures. A tax depreciation report is a comprehensive report detailing how much depreciation you can claim on your investment property to pay less tax. 

The tax depreciation report document is typically prepared by a professional quantity surveyor, who will inspect your investment property and assign a value to each asset.
