Case study:
A sheep farm purchased for $2.6 million

From the tax depreciation schedule, they find out they can claim a huge $311,500 in depreciation deductions in the first full financial year alone and a massive $1,066,000 in the first five cumulative years

Some of the biggest depreciation deductions he can claim in the first full financial year belong to the following assets:

  • $176,000 for sheds
  • $44,200 for dams
  • $28,000 for silos
  • $23,200 for yards and loading ramps
  • $17,400 for fences
  • $10,300 for water tanks

This is just a selection of assets found within the property, so is not an exhaustive list.

The table below shows the difference depreciation can make to Doug and Kathleen’s scenario.

Depreciation claimable Tax savings (30%)
First financial year $311,500 $93,450
First 5 cumulative years $1,066,000 $319,800
Total $1,367,000 $410,100

Simply by claiming depreciation, Doug and Kathleen improved their after-tax cash position by $410,100.
