Tax Depreciation: Recent changes, changes to come and a few myths
AVAILABLE AS LIVE SESSION OR VIA A RECORDING
CPD Points: 1.5

This session will cover some of the challenging issues that come up in Tax Depreciation.

What you will learn:

- How to use the Commissioner's  effective life ruling (TR 2018/4 - Income Tax: effective life of depreciating assets);
- How to apply Division 40 to composite items, especially when the $20,000 instant asset write off might apply (TR 2017/D1 Income tax: composite items and identifying the depreciating asset) for the purposes of working out capital allowances; 
- Can I claim any Division 40 deductions for my business’ website? (TR 2016/3 Income tax: deductibility of expenditure on a commercial website);
- What can I claim when I am a part of a strata body? (TR 2015/3 Income tax: matters relating to strata title bodies constituted under strata title legislation);
- And we will look at the myths of tax depreciation schedule, including the myths that have arisen in relation to the recent changes in tax depreciation. For example, to sell the property, the current owner who lives in the property does substantial renovations, including adding numerous depreciation assets. They then sell the property to a new owner. Can the new owner claim Division 40 deductions on the new depreciable assets? What if they had never been turned on?


Who should attend:

Anyone with a good understanding of tax depreciation schedules.
