Why Do I need a Quantity Surveyor Report?

At summit quantity Surveyors, we understand that to be able to provide industry-leading tax depreciation and Capital allowance schedules there needs to be an up-to-date database of current construction costs.

When one thinks of the constructing a new building, oftentimes one neglects to think about the financial checks and balances that are implemented to ensure that the project meets it’s costing and budgetary requirements. Quantity survey reports are an essential function to the construction process and belong to essential practice as opposed to simply implying good practice.

Along with this the importance of reporting essentials such as Work In Progress reports must be highlighted. The importance of remaining on your financial track during construction is exceedingly important, for investors as well as all stakeholders. A work in progress report will provide managers and contractors with a up-to-date, accurate estimation of the true value concerning the current project.

As a result these quantity survey reports play a vital role in construction tax accounting. It allows you to stay on top of the billing cycle as well as to know the true value of the current building or construction project. This provides financial officers, managers and all stakeholders the ability to closely monitor expenditure and to make sure that everything does not exceed its budgetary constraint. Quantity Survey Reports are considered best practice when it comes to responsibly managing construction projects.

Although a major construction project is a massive undertaking with many turning cogs, at summit QS we aim to streamline the process for you and make all quantity survey reports easily accessible and precise. With 25 years of experience, we can confidently provide you with a quality constructive service that adds value to your project.

We are proud to be on the approved list of quantity Surveyors for the National Australia Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Saint George bank for construction finance report and valuation of work in progress reports.

Gerrie Swift 


I could not be happier with the service provided by Anthony and would give 6 stars if possible. Desktop Tax Depreciation Schedules make sense with new builds, very reasonable price and no need to schedule onsite visits.
I will be recommending Summit to my current and previous developers to share with their clients.

Michelle Smith

Anthony from Summit Quantitve Surveyors looked after us with two of our investment properties and we were extremely pleased with the service we received. Anthony personally completed our reports and they were both completed within a few days of being ordered. Would definitely recommend Summit Quantity Surveyors.
