Building allowance vs cost base of the property

Did you know that the cost base of the rental property must be reduced by any building write-off that has been allowed, or is allowable when calculating a capital gain on the sale of a rental property?

Normally, the above rules only apply to a dwelling that was originally acquired on or before 13 May 1997. However, if the dwelling has a new deemed acquisition date because it was first used to produce income after that date, the cost base adjustments will be required for any building write-off.
