Can I Claim for the cost of a Replacement Kitchen for a Rental Property on my Tax Return?

If you are a landlord and replaced a kitchen in one of your rental property, the rules around what you can claim for against your income tax can be confusing.

The cost of replacing the kitchen units, sink etc will be tax allowable.  However if you replace the washing machine with a washer dryer, then as this would be considered an improvement.  In this case you would not be able to claim for the full amount of the new washer dryer, you would need to deduct as an expense the value of replacing it for a like with like washing machine.
