Are you sure that you have claimed capital allowances?

For many reasons Capital Allowances claims have not been prepared for over 70% of commercial properties in the UK. Capital allowances may be claimed by a property owner or investor provided that they have incurred capital expenditure on an asset that they own and use in their business.

Similarly, tenants may claim capital allowances on expenditure on fixtures and fitting installed by them during the term of their lease provided that the lease is still ongoing and not about to cease.

You can still claim

Many Clients are not aware that they could have claimed capital allowances on the purchase of the property. A taxpayer can still claim capital allowances even where the property was purchase over 20 years ago, provided they still own it.

Pool it or lose it

Indeed, changes to the capital allowances rules in 2012, have raised the importance of establishing the capital allowances position before considering disposing of a property.

Have you claimed tax relief on refurbishments?

Similarly, capital allowances on refurbishment and fit out costs are sometimes not claimed.

However, in our experience, it is usually the case that a significant proportion of these costs can be tax deductible in some shape or form.

It is not too late
