Capital Allowances

These days, asset management means far more than managing a building and the space it represents. All financial investment advisers have to add value to the service and create a positive experience for tenants and everyone who interacts with the building, whether inside or outside the asset.

Cushman & Wakefield ensures that your company operates optimally and in the best possible way so that your tenant is satisfied and stays. We have multidisciplinary teams who are highly experienced in sectors, properties, locations and people who work to achieve your objectives and those of your company.
What are capital allowances?

The tax authority says that, “up to 20% of the amounts disbursed to subscribe for shares in new or recently created companies can be deducted, as well as temporary capital contribution, provision of business or professional knowledge for the developmnent of the investee company under the terms established in the investment agreement between the taxpayer and the organisation.” 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. In other words, they can reduce taxable profits for companies, businesses and individuals. All property transactions are 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. Although case law and legislation has attempted to define precisely what can be claimed, the position is still quite unclear. We therefore recommend you entrust these matters to the capital allowance team at Cushman & Wakefield who may achieve considerable savings. 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. Although case law and legislation has attempted to define precisely what can be claimed, the position is still quite unclear. What is clear, however, is that you will benefit significantly by using specialist help.
