Capital Allowances

“A tax relief on qualifying expenditure that can be set off against taxable profits, not solely a tax relief for large items of machinery and plant like cars, ships and manufacturing lines but also certain expenditure on buildings themselves and certain items within commercial properties.”

Capital Allowances can be a very effective way of reducing the after tax cost of purchasing, constructing or refurbishing property. Our specialist RICS qualified consultants specialise solely in maximising the capital allowances position for clients who have incurred expenditure on commercial property acquisitions, new build developments, fit outs and refurbishment projects.

Our Capital Allowances services include:

  • Investigation and evaluation of historical expenditure to assess the availability of tax reductions for previous years
  • Pre-contract advice on commercial property acquisitions
  • Advice on disposal of property interests
  • Preparation of detailed capital allowances claims documents suitable for submission to the Inland Revenue and tax advisers
  • Negotiation of claims settlement with the Inland Revenue
  • Project Management of capital allowances claims on new build and refurbishment projects from inception stage to final handover stage
  • Evaluation and assessment of existing capital allowances information systems including benchmarking and updating in line with current legislation
  • Assistance in agreeing formula/percentage agreements with the Inland Revenue for multiple type projects and properties
  • Provision of in-house capital allowances training to client’s tax and/or property departments

As Chartered Surveyors specialising in quantity surveying, we are well qualified to deal with capital allowance claims. We use our extensive industry experience and knowledge of HMRC rulings and legislation to help our clients secure potential tax refunds.
