    End of attention

    When you acquire a depreciable item of plant, you can depreciate it only for the part of the year that you owned it. For example, if you purchased an item 3 months before the end of an income year, you would be entitled to 25 per cent of a full year's deduction for depreciation.

    If your plant was sold, lost or destroyed during an income year, you are allowed a partial depreciation deduction for the time in that year that you owned the plant. Refer to What happens if you no longer own an item of plant.
