    We had to replace a clothes line for $290 and installed a water meter in a duplex for $785.

    I sent these off to the quantity surveyor to add to our schedule, and he added both at 2.5% per year for 40 years.

    When I look at
    D6 Low-value pool deduction 2019
    and
    Understand Low-Value Pooling | BMT Tax Depreciation
    I reckon I should be deducting at 18.75 in first year and 37.5 after that.

    Why did the QS put them in the 40 year schedule? Should I take them out?

    Thanks
