Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Hello,

I need to replace the whole double garage door in a rental property as it is beyond repair, costing $2700

Do I claim it as depreciation plant or expense?

Thanks in advance.

Repair (expense) vs Replacement (capitalise and depreciate) - see here

 

In short - if you replace the whole thing, you generally capitalise and depreciate. If you are only replacing / repairing part of an asset then its repair.

 

For you - it sounds like you need to capitalise and depreciate.
