Capital allowances are the only form of tax relief claimable on capital expenditure incurred by UK taxpaying owners and occupiers of commercial property. Used to offset UK tax otherwise due on income, capital allowances help profitable business save money as well as encourage investment. Businesses who fail to have a capital allowances recovery strategy unnecessarily overpay tax on a regular basis.
Capital allowances on commercial property expenditure are rarely maximised due to ever-changing tax legislation and the inherent requirement for specialist property valuation and building construction expertise. Our proven multi-disciplinary approach, combining our specialist skills and established dialogue with both HMRC and the VOA, ensures that our clients’ position is always truly maximised.
As strategic property advisors, Knight Frank has to understand clients’ property requirements in the widest context. By being at the forefront of the property-related decision making process, we can integrate our dedicated team early in each project, ensuring all expenditure is correctly planned and combining our specialist skills to maximise the various tax reliefs available.

We provide capital allowances advice on acquisitions and disposals of new and second hand assets, as well as on property developments, alterations, refurbishments and fit-outs.
