Save thousands with a commercial depreciation schedule

Wear and tear

Property depreciation is a tax deduction claimable by commercial property owners and tenants for the gradual wear and tear of a building and the fixtures and fittings within it over time.


The Australian Tax Office (ATO) allows this deduction to be claimed by all income producing property owners each financial year.

Increases cash flow

A tax depreciation schedule prepared by an expert Quantity Surveyor helps property owners and commercial tenants to substantiate depreciation deductions in a tax return and increases the cash flow from the property.

Commercial owners and tenants can claim

One of the more interesting features with commercial property investing, is that both property owners and commercial tenants are able to claim depreciation deductions for the various assets they own.
