Residential Rental Property Acquired Before 2012 Tax Year
Grange Associates Ltd - 27 February 2012
If you acquired a residential rental property before 1 April 2011,
building depreciation changes are likely to have an impact on you. Although there will no longer be a
depreciation allowance on the residential rental property itself, any separately scheduled chattels can still
be depreciated at the prevailing rates.
If you did not previously schedule the chattels separately from the
building itself, you cannot claim any depreciation on them from the beginning of the 2012 tax
Any chattels purchased on or after 1 April 2011 and scheduled
separately from the building can be depreciated at the prevailing rates.
For further information on the IRD’s approach to differentiating
between chattels and residential property fit-out, have a look at our article on Residential Rental Property
