The BMT Rate Finder is provided as a general guide to allow you to examine the assets found in the latest tax ruling from the Australian Taxation Office. However, the Rate Finder is not endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office. The results produced by the Rate Finder and the general assumptions regarding year of application may differ from your personal circumstances. Diminishing Value rates are based on the assumption an asset was acquired after 10th May 2006.
