Our Commercial Services

Depreciation Schedules

An initial deprecation schedule should be completed upon construction or acquisition of any property. It enables owners to maintain tax deprecation schedules, maximising your tax returns. As Quantity Surveyors, we identify and estimate all eligible depreciating assets. Including capital works, maintenance and depreciation reports. Our AIQS and RICS qualified Quantity Surveyors conduct all the assessments also documenting and providing photographic evidence to comply with ATO substantiation requirements.

Asset Registers

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.

Balancing Adjustments

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.

Tenant Abandonment

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.

Site Inspection

A qualified surveyor will carry out your site inspections both virtually and physically. Also, if no site survey is required, you will be offered a discounted fee.

Capital Works

Many properties will have undergone some cosmetic work. Therefore, our team will ensure this cost is calculated and included in your report.
