Capital Allowances

A tax relief for capital expenditure incurred on property used in the course of your business. Capital allowances are used to reduce corporation and income tax.

In the UK, depreciation is not an allowable deduction when calculating taxable profit; capital allowances are used in its place. The rate at which allowances can be utilised depends upon the category of capital allowance each particular asset falls within.

We seek to accelerate the rate at which tax relief can be utilised through a detailed analysis of total property expenditure.


A claim must be made in order to benefit from the relief.

HMRC can penalise tax payers for errors in their returns and have powers to scrutinise historic accounts up to 6 years in the past for those under investigation.
Our reports are prepared on a fully disclosed basis, in accordance with the relevant legislation, case law, and HMRC guidance.
