Any new assets will have a useful life of 10 years and the Daniel and Olivia’s partnership business will use diminishing value method to depreciate their business depreciable assets.

ix. Daniel and Olivia live on the business properties, but 90% of mobile bills, 80% of electricity expenses and 60% of council rates relate to the Brekkie and Lunch and OZ Bottle Shop. The insurance premium paid is completely related to their business. Daniel and Olivia have a separate insurance for their personal goods.
