Super Fund Investor

Your super fund is a business, and like all businesses, your fund should be claiming its maximum allowable deductions, under Australian taxation law.

It doesn’t matter what sort of property your fund owns, or holds shares in – your fund should claim the depreciation of the building, and any fittings, fixtures, plant and equipment.

If your property is part of a strata group, you will also be entitled to a proportion of the depreciable value of common area installations such as:

  • Driveways and walkways
  • Garden reticulation
  • Fire detection and suppression systems
  • Shared wet areas (kitchen, showers, toilets)
  • Common area lighting
  • Fencing, electric gates and associated motors and sensors
  • Security surveillance and recording systems

Your attributable portion of the depreciation value will be in line with your unit entitlement.
