Investment Property Depreciation

Investment Property Depreciation in particular to your rental Real Esate and Business Assets

Generally speaking, it is surprising how many Business Real Estate/Commercial Property Investors are not fully aware of the importance of the tax concessions of property and equipment depreciation. In particular, it is even more surprising that many real estate and business owners either have underestimated property assets or even no depreciation schedule.

One of the first items that I ask vendors before they sell or with new buyers just after they buy is to strongly consider hiring a quantity surveyor if they don?t have a full depreciation schedule. Above all the Depreciation Schedule would verify all depreciable assets items included in the property and/or business sale.

Investment Property Depreciation is of extreme importance with your investment real estate strategy. While depreciation tax concessions are higher with a newer property, they also apply to older investment real estate.
