Travel Deductions for Rental Properties Removed

As of July this year, deductions for travel to residential rental property have been disallowed.
In particular, the travel cost of attending inspections, maintaining the property or collecting rent have been excluded.

This includes travel for meetings at the property agent’s office or attending a strata meeting.
It is important to note here that the expenses relate to travel only.

As a result, landlords can still claim a deduction for repairs undertaken to their residential rental property.
Below are the only non-deductible costs relating to travel:
  • motor vehicle expenses
  • taxi and car hire costs
  • airfares and public transport costs and
  • any related meals or accommodation.
