Property Capital Allowances

Important when buying or selling property

Commercial property owners (including qualifying furnished holiday lets) can claim capital allowances on qualifying capital expenditure as a tax deduction. This is a valuable reduction when companies and individuals have spent their own money buying or improving commercial property.

Property capital allowances are also an important factor when selling a commercial property. If you’ve installed new equipment into the property, then these can be considered.

There are several types of allowances, applicable to different asset categories, and also available for short-life assets, long-life assets, energy-efficient and water-saving assets.

Typically, less than 50% of capital allowances are claimed due to lack of awareness. As the rules are so complicated, Essendon Tax can help you to secure the right tax savings.
