Application for a provisional depreciation rate 申请获得临时折旧率

About this Guide

You are required to claim depreciation on an asset and then account for it when you dispose of that asset. We recommend that you consult a tax agent when considering claiming for depreciation, however, it is still your responsibility to be aware of your tax obligations. Use this form to apply for a provisional depreciation rate. You can apply for a provisional depreciation rate if there is no applicable general rate for your asset: for example, an asset which is new to the New Zealand economy (i.e. invented or imported), or an asset class which has been missed from the classes for general updates.
