We would be needing an Ikea then
I think it's because NZ tenants don't tend to stay as long. Also renting here is often more because of a lack of money to buy a house (or a kitchen) than because they want to.

- you said the kitchen is not depreciable.....if you replace it, does it mean it can be expensed....or is it just the old kitchen's value written off?
- I have a roof that should be replaced...it's asbestos so can't be repaired. Can this be expensed?
My accountant has told me that I can only claim the labour costs for the above...nothing for materials

- Fence is not building. So I'd need a bit more information but sounds like an improvement to the fence. Therefore write off old (if there is one) and capitalise the new one. Then claim depreciation on new fence each year
- old kitchen is part of building. So difficult to write off. New kitchen, as long as similar level as old one, will be an expense. It is not an improvement to the whole building.
- generally the roof woudl be a repair, as is part of building. As long as not improved, ie bigger, longer, extra rooms etc.
Guys, What about a DVS. I recently installed one in a rental. Is this tax deductible ?
Sorry another one, part of our carport is leaking and also it needs more bracing. If we put in more bracing and then replaced all the coloursteel on the carport is this claimable under repairs and mainteance?
personally I would like to just replace the carport but council says I need to get a new building consent (which they probably wouldn't give us)
