Capital Allowances

WHAT ARE CAPITAL ALLOWANCES?

Capital allowances save you money. In fact, they are the only way to claim tax relief on Capital expenditure incurred on commercial property by both UK and overseas taxpayers.
WHAT CAN YOU CLAIM?

Tax on profits can be offset by the allowances you claim. Quite simply, they can reduce taxable profits for companies, businesses and individuals. Therefore, any property or construction transaction provides an opportunity to claim Capital allowances. Once you’ve made a claim, you should then take steps to protect your benefit, even if you plan to dispose of the property or asset.

However, exactly what can be claimed is not an exact science. Despite case law and legislation trying to define exactly what can be claimed, the position remains unclear. What is clear, though, is that you will benefit significantly by using specialist help.

HOW WE CAN HELP


We bring our vast experience, along with our tried and tested approach, to getting the best results for you, whatever the property type. We provide an in-depth and detailed ‘end to end’ service on every project we undertake. This means that opportunities to claim are not missed and alternative types of claim are always investigated.

You can rely on us to generate a healthy return for you on the investment of our fee.

OUR SERVICES INCLUDE


Checking that you have a valid claim and collecting all the data required to make the claim.

Surveying the property and making photographic and written notes to support the claim, including measurements and sketching floor plans if required.

Preparing a detailed analysis of all costs showing the tax treatment of them and the allowances that are being claimed.

Negotiating a settlement with HMRC.
