Capital Allowances Explained:

If you own a business property, you can claim tax relief on the embedded fixtures that were in the building when you purchased it. In other words, if you were able to turn your building upside down, it is the fixtures and fittings in the fabric of the building which did not fall out that would qualify. This includes electrical, heating and ventilation systems, kitchens, bathrooms, carpets, drainage, alarms and much more.

·       For most building types, owners can reclaim between 20% and 40% of the costs spent to buy, refurbish or build the property.

·       A claim on these fixtures could represent a substantial tax saving and, in most instances, cash repayments of tax from HMRC.

·       As a complex area of tax legislation, most property owners are unaware that they are eligible to claim, HMRC estimate that 8 out of 10 business owners are missing out!

·       Due to the need for surveyors and expert tax knowledge, it is often misunderstood or overlooked and is not something an accountant would have already claimed.

·       Zeal offers a technical survey of your building, at our own cost, to determine if you are entitlement to claim.

To date, Zeal has a 100% success rate on our submitted claims and our clients receive on average £33,000 in tax relief per property!
