For Property Investors it’s time to make a note of all the tax-deductible items at the End of this Financial Year. There is a wide range of deductions on a rental property for an Investor provided they have retained all the appropriate documents and invoices.
To name a few deductions, they are as follows:
- Advertising for tenants
- Cleaning costs
- Council and water rates
- Strata/body corporate fees
- Electricity and gas
- Gardening costs
- Insurance (building, contents, etc.)
- Interest on the investment loan
- Land tax
- Repairs and maintenance
- Reasonable travel expenses (for inspection of property).
- White Goods (though subject to depreciation value)
These are few of the most common deductions one can make on their Investment Property. However, these are not necessarily applicable to all investment properties or investors, and may not always be paid in full.
Tax-Planning: can help with all your deductions and get maximum benefits. Starting early and planning your tax components wisely can be helpful. Make sure you have all the relevant documents and receipts for the same.
