  • For industrial and hotel buildings acquired during 2017 and 2018, a deduction for wear and tear at 7% per annum will be allowed (increased from 4% per annum).
  • For buildings used for agricultural and livestock production which were acquired during 2017 and 2018, a deduction for wear and tear at 7% per annum will be allowed (increased from 4% per annum).
