We are currently running a 10 part depreciation series here at On Property.

I was lucky enough to score an in person interview with the managing director of BMT Quantity Surveyors – The largest quantity surveyor business in Australia.

They have hundreds of staff all over Australia and Brad is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to depreciation for investment properties.

Below are the links to the 10 episodes. If you want a downloadable PDF of all 10 episodes simply click here and enter your email address and we will send it to you when it is ready.
