Tax Depreciation Quantity Surveyors

Qualified Quantity Surveyors William Shakespeare’s definition of Quantity Surveyor: “When we mean to build, we first survey the plot, and then draw the model, and when we see the figures of the house, and then must we rate the cost of the erection. Which if we find outweighs ability, what do us then, but draws anew the model in fewer offices, or at least desists to build at all.”
