Capital Allowances are the only means of providing tax relief for capital expenditure incurred by both UK and overseas tax payers on their capital investment in commercial property and are rarely maximised. This is due to shifting tax legislation and the requirement for specialist valuation procedures. The complexity of modern buildings contributes too. We’ve developed a fully disclosed valuation methodology that meets the specific requirements of HMRC.
Our proven multi–disciplinary approach utilises a combination of specialist skills combined with a well-established dialogue with HMRC built on years of submitting claims, negotiating and agreeing values.
We have specialist expertise in:
• Tax and Accountancy
• Quantity Surveying
• Property Valuation
This approach enables us to maximise client capital allowances recovery levels and agree our valuations with HMRC as efficiently as possible.
