Capital Allowances Reviews
If you own commercial property and are subject to UK tax, you are eligible to claim capital allowances on the qualifying fixtures and fittings in your properties. This is regardless of whether you are a landlord or you use the property in your trading business.
If you are in the process of, or considering, purchasing a new commercial property it is highly recommended that you review any capital allowances available at the time of purchase.
What are capital allowances?
Qualifying expenditure can arise on:
- the acquisition of a building;
- the construction of a new building;
- the extension, alteration or refurbishment of an existing building; and
- leasehold improvements to a rented property.
The expenditure can include:
- lighting and electrical systems;
- air conditioning;
- heating; and
- sanitary ware.
