Capital Allowances

The intricacies of legislation and challenges in interpreting the rules often result in businesses not claiming all the entitled tax relief.

What are Capital Allowances?

Capital allowances offer immediate tax relief on capital expenditures, leading to significant cash savings for businesses. This encompasses a broad spectrum, ranging from computers to extensions in commercial properties. Unfortunately, many businesses fail to claim their full entitlement to capital allowances due to a lack of understanding about eligible items for claims.

Contrary to common belief, there is no time limit for claiming capital allowances. Therefore, reviews of historical expenditures can uncover additional tax savings. All types of businesses, including landlords under specific circumstances, can benefit from claiming capital allowances.


Capital allowance claim categories:

  • Annual investment allowance (AIA)
    The AIA provides businesses with a 100% tax deduction for qualifying expenditures.
  • Writing Down Allowances (WDAs)
    WDAs gradually write off asset expenditures over time at rates of 18% or 6%.
  • First Year Allowances (FYAs)
    FYAs can be claimed in addition to the AIA, offering 100% tax relief on specific capital expenditures, including new zero-emission cars and goods vehicles.
  • Super deduction
    Introduced as a temporary measure until March 31, 2023, the super deduction provides an enhanced deduction of 130% on qualifying expenditures.
  • 50% first-year allowance
    Introduced alongside the super deduction until March 31, 2023, the 50% first-year allowance allows a 50% tax deduction on qualifying special rate pool expenditures.

Accurately identifying and allocating expenditures across these categories is crucial for optimizing capital allowance claims.

Commercial Property

Leewop specialises in advising on making capital allowance claims for commercial properties and can help property owners or leaseholders identify qualifying expenditures on fixtures and fittings. This work can be carried out on existing buildings, where no claim has previously been made, as well as on construction projects and as part of the purchase or sale process, including advice on the drafting and agreement of S198 claims between buyers and sellers. We can also assist in making structures and building allowance (SBA) claims where capital allowances are unavailable.

Land Remediation Relief

In cases where businesses remediate land for contamination they weren't responsible for, a claim can be submitted to receive tax relief on 150% of the incurred expenditure. Decontamination activities may involve, but are not limited to, tasks such as asbestos or Japanese knotweed removal. This investment strategy and allowance claim can prove beneficial for preserving and enhancing building assets while also minimizing tax liabilities.
