WHAT IS A CAPITAL ALLOWANCE?

A capital allowance is a tax relief every UK business can claim against its taxable profit. It falls under the UK Government’s Capital Allowances Act. It means there’s the potential for your business to pay less tax if you’ve spent money on assets – property, equipment, fixtures, vehicles, plant and machinery and much more. With capital allowances, you have a big opportunity to make the most of valuable tax reliefs.

Capital allowances are most useful if you’re buying, building or renovating a workspace. Or, if you’re spending money on other assets such as property, equipment, fixtures, vehicles or electrical services. Did you know that different items have different tax allowances? This can come right down to the type of air conditioning or ironmongery you choose. And on a big project, an awareness of this can save your business thousands of pounds.

MAXIMISE. ACCELERATE. REDUCE

Put simply, we maximise and accelerate capital allowance claims for businesses so they pay less tax. We do it for businesses and developers. And sometimes, because of our expertise, people also come to us and hand us existing claims or estimates started by other tax advisers. We often take these claims to the next level.

We know you’re looking for a fast process too. The best claims are the ones that benefit your business quickly. So, we’ll identify the right treatment that will accelerate your claim to the earliest point in time, making sure we’ve done a thorough review to maximise the reliefs.

And in the end, you’ll have a reduction of tax payments. Simple. This can be used for all sorts of things – paying down any debts or reinvesting to help your business grow.
