About Us

our history

Build Cost Pty Ltd, was established in 1998 to provide Depreciation Schedules as a specialised service making us one of the very first to specialise in tax depreciation. Since then we have completed thousands of schedules across all types of construction including residential, education, manufacturing, commercial and short term traveller accommodation.

From small beginnings we have grown to have physical offices in 4 locations throughout Victoria and soon to open in Sydney.

Due to the experience and qualifications of our staff, Build Cost has been awarded full Tax Practitioner status by the Tax Practitioners Board – we believe all our competitors only have been awarded restricted recognition. That means, if required, we have the authority to advise other related tax matters without breaching any rules or regulations and have the ability to communicate with your accountant with more authority.
