Claiming capital allowances on the purchase, construction and renovation of land & buildings is a specialist area of tax legislation, often requiring the skills of surveyors and capital allowances specialists.
Whilst accountants will make claims for capital allowances for their clients on machinery, equipment etc for use in a business, capital allowances on investments in buildings are regularly under claimed.
By maximising claims or identifying missed claims for capital allowances on investments in land & buildings, significant tax savings can be achieved. This provides cash repayments and long term tax savings.
