Businesses are allowed to claim tax relief on purchases of certain assets such as a vehicle or piece of equipment.

Capital Allowances allow you to deduct a proportion of the cost of the asset from your profits before calculating your tax liabilities, potentially yielding significant tax savings.

The nature of the expenditure determines the type of capital allowance that can be claimed and the rate of relief that is available.

The most attractive capital allowances include:

The Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) – 100%

  • Deduct 100% of the cost of the asset in the year of purchase
  • Available to all businesses on investments in plant and machinery (cars do not qualify)
  • The maximum deduction from profits is currently limited to £500,000

First Year Allowance (FYA) – 100%

  • Deduct 100% of the cost of the asset in the year of purchase
  • Available on certain energy and water efficient plant and machinery
  • Can be claimed in addition to AIA
