  2. Body Corporate Costs (If applicable strata titled property)
  3. Cleaning
  4. Council Rates
  5. Depreciation (Refer document above – This is a non-cash expense)
  6. Electricity/Gas/Water if you as landlord are responsible
  7. Inspection/Travel costs

Please note that this is a generic list of things to keep a track of. Your accountant will advise further on what items need to be documented.

Depreciation is a major deduction and is of the non-cash type of expense. This means you can claim a deduction for depreciation although you have not actually outlaid any cash to incur that deduction.
