Capital cost for CCA

I'm confused about capital cost addition.

 

1. If I purchase a rental property (real estate) with a mortgage, I can claim CCA on the total purchase price 

    since the title has passed to me, correct?

 

2. What if I purchase an equipment with financing (Total purchase price=$100,000, down payment=$40,000,

    Monthly payments=$5,000)? Should I add whatever I have actually paid to capital cost or total purchase

    price of $100,000?

Take CCA on $100k, make sure to uncheck the acceleration of CCA, profile has acceleration checked by default. Don't miss out the interest on the financing portion.

For some of my clients claiming CCA is the best options when considering CCB and income tested benefits. Yes, at some point there will be huge recapture but then we can have the client contribute heavily into RRSP that year.

I pray you have better understanding of CCA and also glad I didn't go to the same school as you did.

Thank you but where can I find the info about acceleration? I reviewed the restrictions of the acceleration

but couldn't find relevant info

Hasib, I appreciate your input. What can't I claim acceleration for the equipment purchase?

This is not a rental property nor a rollover transaction.
