This is a form of tax relief that allows businesses which pay tax in the UK to deduct from their taxable profit, the value of their qualifying capital expenditure on assets such as equipment or buildings.
Capital allowances can be claimed not only by companies, but also partnerships, individuals and overseas investors which carry out qualifying business activity such as a trade, property business, etc.
The UK government has continued to incentivise businesses which pay tax in the UK to claim capital allowances tax relief.
A number of changes to the scheme has continued to make capital allowances worthwhile for businesses to benefit from. Amongst these changes include the welcomed extension of the £1 million temporary increase of the annual investment allowances until March 2023 and the introduction of the temporary super-deduction allowances until March 2023. There is also the introduction of the enhanced capital allowances relief on qualifying capital expenditure at designated Freeport tax sites, until 30 September 2026.
