Embedded Capital Allowances Tax Relief

Embedded Capital Allowances tax relief offsets the hidden expenditure in a commercial property. Typically, this tends to include embedded elements within the property such as air conditioning, wiring, heating, lighting, and security systems. All UK taxpayers that own commercial property, personally or within a Limited Company, may be eligible to claim Embedded Capital Allowances tax relief.

Research and Development Tax Relief

Research and Development (R&D) tax relief is the government’s way of rewarding businesses that are investing in innovation by developing new, or improving existing products, processes, services, devices and materials or advancing the state of knowledge in their sector. R&D tax relief can be claimed for essentially anything that helps gain a competitive advantage in a new and innovative way, even for failed projects.

The Patent Box Tax Relief

Like Research & Development, the Patent Box tax relief is a way that the government reward companies that are driving innovation. The aim is to encourage the development of new patented inventions in the UK. If a company is making a profit on patented inventions, it will be eligible for a lower effective corporation tax rate of 10% on the relevant profits.

Remediation of Contaminated Land (RoCL) Tax Relief

Land and property owners may claim this relief for expenditure incurred on removing or treating contaminants in the land or property, such as Asbestos, Radon and Japanese Knotweed, or for bringing land that has been derelict for a long time back into use.
