Amending Prior Year Tax Returns


The challenge emerged when a client enlisted our services to aid with their tax return. Following a comprehensive assessment, we uncovered a significant oversight—the client had failed to account for property expenses depreciation on their investment property for multiple years. Consequently, it became imperative amending prior year tax returns.


To tackle this issue, Endurego Tax provided vital assistance to the client by facilitating their collaboration with a proficient Quantity Surveyor (QS) and meticulously crafting an extensive depreciation report. Ordinarily, tax return modifications are constrained within a two-year timeframe, with no amendments allowed beyond that period. However, we leveraged an exceptional niche ruling within the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to successfully reverse the tax return outcomes for an impressive span of up to 20 years.


As a result of our efforts, the client experienced a substantial windfall—a staggering tax refund exceeding $50,000. This outcome left them elated and deeply appreciative of our exceptional work in rectifying errors in their prior year tax returns and securing such a significant refund. Our ability to effectively address their predicament and deliver a positive outcome not only met their expectations but also further solidified our reputation for providing excellent service and comprehensive solutions.
