Our Commercial Services


The Initial deprecation schedule should be completed upon construction or acquisition of a property. This will enable owners the opportunity to maintain tax deprecation schedules, which will in turn maximise your tax returns. As Quantity Surveyors, we identify and estimate (where required) all eligible depreciating assets. It includes capital works, maintenance, and depreciation reports. Our AIQS and RICS qualified Quantity Surveyors conduct all the assessments. At the same time, the Quantity Surveyors document and provide photographic evidence to comply with ATO substantiation requirements. 



Our detailed asset registers are compiled through a comprehensive survey carried out by our Quantity  Surveyors. A detailed asset register will provide you with a full list of assets, which in turn will assist with compliance, audits , sinking funds, asset planning and ongoing tax deprecation.



Often over looked is the deductions you may be entitled to upon demolition of an asset. Whether it is capital works or a depreciating asset, the un-deducted value (written down
value) of the asset can be claimed in the year of demolition.



Upon lease expiry the capital works component of the tenants fit out reverts to the landlord if the fit out is not demolished. Our assessment identifies the eligible capital
works component.
