Commercial Property Owners

Owning commercial premises
When you buy or obtain a commercial property such as a shop, factory or office – it’s important to keep your records right from the start.

As a landlord, you may be entitled to claim a tax deduction for depreciation and capital works on any improvements you make to a property.

A depreciation deduction claim is related to depreciating assets that are not affixed to the building and are functional units in their own right. The claim is based on the effective life of that specific asset.

A capital works deduction claim relates to the building and structural improvements that are permanently affixed to the land and building. The claim is generally limited to 2.5% p.a. on the construction expenditure.
