Replacing a bathroom vanity in basement rental

Recommended Posts

Hi, I don't claim CCA on a basement rental in my principal residence but I had to replace a bathroom vanity which was in bad shape.  Can I claim it as a current expense? or am I out of luck?  I don't twant CCA.

Hello Rsand,

You can verify with the CRA or an accountant but it seems like it could be a current expense.

Does the expense maintain or improve the property?     The cost of a repair that improves a property beyond its original condition is probably a capital expense. If you replace wooden steps with concrete steps, the cost is a capital expense. Footnote 1     An expense that simply restores a property to its original condition is usually a current expense. For example, the cost of repairing wooden steps is a current expense.
