On the 9th of May 2017, the ATO announced sweeping reforms to the depreciation laws that have really changed the game for property investors.
While the changes present some challenges for investors, one benefit is that buying new property is more affordable (from a cash flow perspective), than investing in second-hand property.
If you invest in a brand-new property, you can claim depreciation on both the structure of the building and the highly depreciable assets (such as flooring, appliances, window treatments, etc.).
Those non-structural assets show wear and tear faster than structural assets. Therefore, investors in new property will be able to claim a significant portion of their depreciation in the early years, when they can benefit most from lower taxes and better cash flow.
The bottom line: Investing in brand-new property has undeniably fantastic cash flow advantages.
