Investment Property FY2023

I've started working on the figures I'll need for completing my 2022-23 FY tax return. One of my new items for this year's return will be my investment apartment. The purchase was settled in late Feb and I was able to rent it out immediately. So for FY23 the relevant figures are:

Settlement date: 24 Feb.

Mortgage Interest paid:                 $17,133.82

Interest rec'd (on deposit etc)                                $1,754.61

Strata Levy:            $2,118.20

Water rates:            $320.99

TOTAL                                   $4,900.44

Depreciation (DVM) FY23:                $9,276.55

TOTAL:                                  $33,852.06             $14,504.61

Net LOSS FY23:                          $19,347.45

Tax refund (@32.50% marginal rate):                            $6,287.92

Now that I know the current figures for insurance, strata levy, rates etc. I will be able to estimate my expected tax deduction for FY24 and submit a PAYG withholding tax variation form so I pay less tax out of each pay, rather than receive a large tax refund. This will help improve the monthly cash-flow situation. The variation takes about 4 weeks to process, so I should try to get it done this coming weekend.
