Aggregator identifies opportunity in budget changes

A boutique aggregator has partnered with a tax depreciation specialist to capitalise on measures announced in the 2017 federal budget.

In line with the budget’s changes to rules around depreciation, eChoice has announced that its brokers will now benefit from the aggregator’s newest partnership with tax depreciation specialist company BMT.

eChoice general manager Blake Buchanan said the aggregator recognised impending changes were likely to be made to rules governing tax depreciation for investors, and identified a suitable partner that could offer brokers a respected information service they could depend on for their investor clients.

“Now that changes to depreciation rules have become reality as part of the Treasurer’s budget delivery, the intention is for our brokers to be able to connect their investor clients with the depreciation specialist at the point of sale,” he said.

“This offers a significant value-add for their businesses to already have that critical service on-boarded well before July.”

As brokers continue to arrange more investment loans, the need for concise and current advice on rules around depreciation is critical, BMT chief executive Bradley Beer said.

“This partnership with eChoice will really complement the existing service their brokers provide to the investor market, by delivering a necessary element of legal clarity around changes and how they will affect each individual borrower.”
