I recently had a renovation done on a IP in Feburary. New kitchen and new carpet put in. Do i need to get a depreciation report done or can i use the guide that is on the tax page? It said for carpet something like 10 years?CatalystParticipant@catalystJoin Date: 2008Post Count: 1,404
If it's one or 2 things you can do it by the tax page but there are probably many things you aren't claiming.
Most depreciation companies won't do a report unless you get your money back the first year. So worthwhile doing.
Scott at http://www.depreciator.com.au is fantastic. Email him with details of how old the place is, what it's constructed of, reno's you have done and he'll let you know whether it's worthwhile doing.insanoParticipant@insanoJoin Date: 2009Post Count: 34
I used Washington Brown recently to do all my dep schedules, they were very efficient and friendly. Catalyst is right they knocked me back on two of my properties as they were not worth doing.
They did mention however if I was to renovate it was worth doing a dep schedule before and after as they can write down the scrapping of items and then later on depreciate the new items.
I paid $600 per schedule and they're worth their weight in gold!!Corey BattParticipant@cjaysaJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 1,010
