Frequently Asked Questions

Can my property be depreciated over 25 years instead of 40?

Short Answer: No.

The standard depreciation period for the building structure of residential properties, as set by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), is 40 years (2.5% each year). For residential properties, it’s not possible to depreciate over a 25-year period. Depreciating a property over 25 years (4% a year) is only set for specific commercial or industrial properties such as manufacturing.
