What is a tax depreciation estimate?

A tax depreciation estimate helps to outline likely deductions for any type of residential or commercial property including both capital works deductions for the structure of the building and plant and equipment deductions for the assets contained within it.

A tax depreciation estimate can be very useful for property investors and can:

  • Help to inform them before purchase of a property about the likely deductions available.
  • Assist after purchase to identify likely deductions available before obtaining a depreciation schedule for use with tax returns.
… a BMT staff member assisted me with a free depreciation approximation for a townhouse I was considering purchasing. This was done within the day. This exceeded my expectations of service.
