1. Bathroom accessories
Bradley Beer, CEO of BMT Tax Depreciation, says that bathroom accessories are modest additions to an investment property that can be easily overlooked, but investors may be able to claim around $125 in deductions for things such as toilet brush holders, shower caddies and soap holders. “As these assets cost under $300, the ATO allows investors to claim their full value as an immediate deduction in the first full financial year,”...
