Who Is Washington Brown?
Washington Brown is one of Australia’s oldest and most respected quantity surveying organisations, preparing more than 220,500 reports and over $26 billions of dollars in depreciation savings for property investors over the last 40 years.
As Quantity Surveyors, we work directly with the banks and developers (such as Commonwealth Bank and Lendlease) and know the actual costs of construction because we’ve inspected countless properties for progress claims. Here are a few reasons why more Australian property investors choose Washington Brown.
The Real Reason We Established The National Depreciation Register
Washington Brown established The National Depreciation Register in response to the recent changes to the budget, which left property investors feeling confused about what depreciation costs they can claim moving forward.
While you will still need a property inspection to prepare a depreciation schedule for a house or if you purchased the property before the 9th May, 2017, it may not be required if you purchased an apartment after this date.
There’s a faster, easier and less costly way.
If you purchased a residential second-hand apartment after 9th of May, 2017, then we most likely already have the costs related to your property on file. You don’t need to pay for an inspection, as we already know what costs are associated with your unit.
Simply use Washington Browns search algorithm to find your property and the associated depreciation report. You benefit by utilising Washington Brown’s vast records and can order the report online (for a minimal, one-time fee) and find out exactly what tax-saving depreciation you can claim.
We already have the construction cost for your property on file – so we’re able to pass those savings onto you.
There has never been a faster, easier and more affordable way for property investors to maximize tax returns and put more money back into their pockets.
