A significant increase in buyer activity has resulted in properties selling again on the first weekend of listing.

NPB Brisbane has seen the return of Multi Offer situations to the market-place again in numbers last witnessed well over a year ago.

River front properties are also back in fashion again with sales figures picking up and values holding their own again in a side of the market that has been very depressed lately.

Depreciation: the LOW DOWN

Understanding the basics of depreciation is a must for all property investors. In short, it is a tool that will leave you with more money in your bank account each year at tax time.


Depreciation is basically a Tax deduction available to property investors.

Depreciation allows you to claim for the wear and tear experienced over time for an investment property. This tax deduction recognises the fact that building itself, as well as its plant & equipment become worn out over time and will eventually need replacing.

Like any tax deduction, depreciation basically reduces your taxable income, so basically if your income was $100,000 and you had deductions of $10,000 for the year, you only pay tax on $90,000.

Ask yourself some questions:

Is it too late for a Depreciation report?

How is it calculated?

I own an older style property, should I bother claiming?

Why do I have to use a Quantity Surveyor?

What is a residual write off?

9 out of 10 property investors pay too much tax…don’t be one of them!

Contact Stephen McGee and we can introduce you to one of our “Partners in Property” who can make sure that you are getting the best out of your investment.
