The Priority Report BMT Tax Depreciation
As a building gets older and items within it wear out, they depreciate in value. The Australian Tax Office (ATO) allows owners of income producing property to claim a tax deduction called depreciation, on a building’s structure and plant and equipment assets contained within it. Claiming depreciation is a significant taxation benefit, and one which many investment property owners are unaware of. Depreciation is a non-cash deduction—you do not need to spend any money to claim it.

U13A’s West Arana Hills— From the Manager Jo Pollard 2016 was a successful year for the WAHRLFC U13A’s!!! After playing well most of the season they ended on a high note by winning the GBJRL U13 Division 2 Grand Final. With the generous sponsorship from the Professionals, the year culminated in an end of season weekend away at a YMCA Camp at Joyner. The boys had so much fun swimming in the pool, having a campfire and toasting marshmallows, along with challenging themselves with raft building and the “Possum Glide”. The Possum Glide was a team activity where one person was harnessed at one end on their own, while 5 boys were harnessed at the other end together and on the count the boys would run forward, sending their single harnessed team mate shooting up into the air!! We now know that a couple of the boys have a slight fear of heights but with encouragement from their team mates they gave it a go and all completed the task. The coaching and management staff are very proud of the boys and really appreciate the support that Bradley Butten, Ian Weaving and their team have given to the boys this year. Without their support we would not have been able to give them this great experience. Thank you again for your support for the second year in a row!
From us all at Professionals Priority we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. We look forward to working with you in 2017.
