Before tenants move in I did some maintenance to the house including new air con and shower etc.Some people say this is initial repair before rental and its fees can not claim for tax refund or depreciation, it can only be considered when I sell the investment property. Is it correct?

But you might be able to ‘depreciate’ them.Terryw | Structuring Lawyers Pty Ltd / Loan Structuring Pty Ltdhttp://structuring.com.au/Email MeLawyer, Mortgage Broker and Tax Advisor (Sydney based but advising Aust wide) http://Terryw.com.au/Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
