About Capital Allowances

Capital allowances opportunities can arise in a number of different ways:

  • When expenditure is incurred on constructing, purchasing, fitting out, refurbishing or extending a commercial property
  • When buying or selling a commercial property: the value of the capital allowances must be agreed as part of the contract otherwise the claim will be lost

Typical properties that benefit from capital allowances include:

  • Purchase of an office building – allowances available on initial investment plus further claim on any redevelopment costs
  • Hotel acquisition and refurbishment including serviced apartments
  • Restaurants and entertainment venues
  • Residential care homes, nurseries and holiday lets

Make sure your clients aren’t missing out on capital allowance relief.
