Property Depreciation, Business Asset Depreciation and Balancing Adjustment Reports  

The ATO has provided extensive tax publications and access to tax rulings to me to ensure all my reports comply with current legislation  


Other Services in Depreciation 


I can also provide balancing adjustment reports for when a property investor or business owner disposes of his/her property or business assets or decides not to hold or use them anymore or there is an involuntary disposal of the asset. This involves calculating the difference between the termination value of the asset and its adjustable value at the time of the balancing adjustment event. If there is a balancing adjustment event a balancing adjustment amount has to be included in your assessable income or claimed as a deduction. Hence, the difference between the termination value and the adjustable value will appear as income or a tax deduction. If the termination value is greater than the adjustable value the excess is included in your assessable income. If the termination value is less than the adjustable value the difference is treated as a deduction. The termination value is, generally, what you receive or are taken to receive for the asset when the balancing adjustment event occurs. The termination value is made up of amounts you receive and the market value of non-cash benefits such as goods or services you receive for the asset. Examples of termination values are proceeds from selling an asset or an insurance payout for the loss or destruction of a depreciating asset.


As assets that are plant under Division 40 depreciate to values under $1,000 they are eligible to be included in the Low Value Pool as Low value assets providing the investor/owner opted to use the Diminishing Value Method. I can update reports to reflect the movement of plant to the Low Value Pool where it depreciates faster giving greater up-front deductions & cash flow.


When property owners incur capital expenditure on renovations or structural additions to their property I can provide depreciation reports for those capital expenditures.

Business owners and property investors who purchase assets or lease assets to purchase later can deduct their depreciation off their taxable income.each plant asset depreciates from its installation date and its cost includes bringing the plant to its condition and location.




Plant and Low Value Pool assets depreciate from installation date ready to use and any subsequent buyer of the business plant asset or investment property plant asset inherits the remaining depreciation of that plant asset from settlement of the purchase.

if a property is on leased land or a business plant is leased then the lessee is considered to be that assets’ holder and entitled to its depreciation. Each owner of the business or property depreciates their cost of interest in the Plant & capital works.

An item of capital equipment which is re-built or replaced is depreciable over an effective life. an improvement to an asset which increases its income generation is also depreciated & not an expense. an insurance payout for these repairs is considered assessable income.
