1 IR 265 February 2015 General depreciation rates The information in this guide is based on current tax laws at the time of printing.
2 2 GENERAL DEPRECIATION RATES Introduction General depreciation rates This guide sets out the general depreciation rates for both diminishing value (DV) and straight line (SL) that apply to assets acquired in the 2006 and future tax years. Inland Revenue sets the depreciation rates in the form of general and provisional determinations for all depreciable assets, other than fixed-life intangible depreciable assets or excluded depreciable assets, based on an asset s estimated useful life. New determinations and provisional determinations are published on and in our Tax Information Bulletin (TIB). For more detailed information on fixed-life intangible assets see the Depreciation guide (IR 260). Excluded depreciable assets must be depreciated using the historic rates see our guide Historic depreciation rates (IR 267). Note The IR 267 is only available on our website under Forms and guides. Our online depreciation rate finder allows you to quickly search for assets across all industry and asset categories. Go to (search keywords: work it out). The depreciation rates are set out in industry and asset categories. Assets which are unique to one or two specific industries are listed under the industry category. Assets which are typically used in a variety of different industries (for example, tanks, boilers and heating) are listed under the asset category. Assets are listed alphabetically within each industry and asset category. The following details are shown for each asset: Column 1 the estimated useful life Column 2 the DV rate Column 3 the DV rate including the 20% loading Column 4 the SL rate Column 5 the SL rate including the 20% loading. Depreciation on new assets, including new assets never used or held for use in New Zealand, and imported secondhand assets, is calculated using either the DV or SL rate plus 20% loading. For secondhand assets acquired in New Zealand, buildings and imported used cars, the 20% loading doesn t apply. Removal of 20% loading The 20% depreciation loading has been removed and will only apply to eligible assets with binding contracts for purchases that were entered into on or before 20 May Special rules that apply to buildings Buildings acquired on or after 19 May 2005 must apply the rates from the year except: buildings acquired as relationship property or under a wholly owned group company transfer that the previous owner depreciated using the old building depreciation rates in which case those rates continue to apply, and buildings that were purchased, or to be built, and the relevant contract was signed prior to 19 May 2005, the old building depreciation rates also continue to apply. From the income year, depreciation on buildings has reduced to 0% where buildings have an estimated useful life of 50 years or more. This applies to both commercial and residential properties, including leasehold property, and regardless of when the building was acquired. Depreciation will still be applicable for buildings with a life of less than 50 years. Even though many buildings can no longer be depreciated, depreciation recovery will still apply for those buildings when they are sold for greater than their adjusted book value. Estimated useful life The estimated useful life of an asset is the period over which an asset might reasonably be expected to be useful in earning income in New Zealand. The fact that an asset may have been previously used for a purpose other than deriving income (for example, private use) or carrying on a business overseas won t reduce its estimated useful life.
3 3 Maximum depreciation claims Whether you re using the straight line (SL) or diminishing value (DV) method you can t claim depreciation in excess of the cost price/value of the depreciable asset. To make sure you don t claim more depreciation than you re entitled to, you need to keep a track of the adjusted tax value of the asset. You ll need to keep a fixed assets register with the following information: a description of the asset original purchase price or valuation date the asset was acquired and the date in service estimated useful life of asset depreciation method to be used for the asset percentage of private use if any the adjusted tax value for each year. You use this information to complete a depreciation schedule. Example 1 April 2011 Simone purchases a dishwasher for $1,200, used 100% for business. Using the straight line depreciation method the rate is 21%. Original cost Depreciation rate Depreciation claimed Adjusted tax value Year 1 $1,200 21% $ $ Year 2 $1,200 21% $ $ Buildings and building fit-out asset categories The term building can have various meanings depending on the context in which the term is used. A building in ordinary circumstances is defined as: a structure of considerable size permanent in the sense that it s intended to last a considerable time enclosed by walls and a roof able to function independently of any other structure. However, a building is not necessarily a physically separate structure. Interpretation statement 10/02 Meaning of building in the depreciation provisions provides a full explanation and can be found in the Tax Information Bulletin Vol 22, No 5 (June 2010). The chattels and fit-out of a building, where it doesn t form part of the building, can still be depreciated. Interpretation statement 10/01 Residential rental properties Depreciation of items of depreciable property sets out a three-step test that Inland Revenue will apply to determine whether an item can be separated out or whether it s seen as being part of the building. You can find this in the Tax Information Bulletin Vol 22, No 4 (May 2010). Year 3 $1,200 21% $ $ Year 4 $1,200 21% $ $ Year 5 $1,200 21% $ $0.00 Simone can claim $ for the first four years. However, in the fifth year the final claim is $ This is because the dishwasher s adjusted tax value is less than the original calculated depreciation of $ The amount of depreciation claimed can t exceed the adjusted tax value so no further depreciation can be claimed on the dishwasher after year five.
4 4 GENERAL DEPRECIATION RATES The general depreciation rates, including the 20% loading, are listed in the table below and future years asset rates Assets other than buildings acquired on or after 1 April 2005 Buildings acquired on or after 19 May 2005** DV rate (%) DV rate +20% loading (%)* SL rate (%) SL rate +20% loading (%)* DV rate (%) SL rate (%) * The 20% depreciation loading doesn t apply to assets acquired after 20 May ** For buildings, depreciation will reduce to 0% from the income year where they have an estimated useful life of 50 years or more. How to find the right rate Follow this step-by-step process to find the right depreciation rate. 1. See the Industry category list in the contents pages. If there is an appropriate industry category for your industry and your asset is listed there, use that depreciation rate (either DV or SL), otherwise go to step See the Asset category list in the contents pages. If there is an appropriate asset category and your asset is listed, use that depreciation rate (either DV or SL), otherwise go to step If the asset is listed under an industry category (step 1) which isn t your main industry, and you use the asset in a similar way to the industry shown, use that depreciation rate (either DV or SL), otherwise go to step If none of the first three steps apply, use the default class from the appropriate asset category if the description of the default class is applicable to your asset. 5. If none of the first four steps apply, use the default class rate from the appropriate industry category if the description of the default class is applicable to your asset. 6. Where there is no appropriate listing for your asset under an industry or asset category, you can apply for a provisional depreciation rate.
