Capital Allowances

Why Claim Capital Allowances?

We can help you identify expenditure eligible for allowances which have previously been unclaimed. Capital allowances are a valuable form of tax relief available to anyone incurring capital expenditure when buying, selling, building or renovating commercial property.

Identifying the actual plant and machinery will be the only way to obtain relief for most property expenditure. There is no fee for our team’s work if our specialists decide that a claim is not viable. You do not pay anything until the successful claim is processed by HMRC.


Specialist input is needed to identify the maximum amount of expenditure qualifying for relief.

QA specialises in providing additional accountancy services, traditionally working alongside your accountant to obtain maximum tax savings.
