2017 Federal Budget

Under proposed changes announced in the 2017 Federal Budget, residential property investors who exchange contracts on a second-hand residential property after 7:30pm on 9th May 2017 will no longer be able to claim depreciation on plant and equipment assets, these properties will still have a deduction available on qualifying capital works.

All properties acquired prior to this date will not be affected. We will shortly be adjusting the calculator to accurately reflect the changes.

Additional information

Investors who purchase a new property will be able to continue to claim depreciation as they were previously. These changes will affect the total deductions outlined within the results table of this calculator for properties purchased after this date.

We are currently speaking with government to further understand the intricacies relating to the proposed changes.

If you have any questions or require a depreciation estimate for a property purchased after 9th May 2017 please contact our office on 1300 728 726.
