Please note that only cash income received is assessable for tax purposes and no GST should be claimed.

In order to be able to claim rental deductions you should receive rental income or the property was available to be rented out and steps were taken to rent the property e.g. advertised for rent.

Generally rental property deductions can be sorted in four categories:

  • Deductible in the first year (e.g. repairs, water charges, insurance, advertising, interest expense)
  • Deductible over several years (e.g. depreciation and borrowing costs)
  • Capital expenses (can be claimed only once the property sold e.g. stamp duty)
  • Non deductible (e.g. landscaping and expenses related to private usage of the property)
