Case Study

Recent Clients include Lavenders Care Home, a family run care home in Kent which has been running for 35 years. In 2014 we were appointed to complete a full Property Capital Allowance review after many years of extensive and unclaimed improvements work. Capital Allowance Review Service analysed the property expenditure of £1,105,059 and generated of £392,850 capital allowances; producing an overall tax saving of £157,140. Due to the tax already paid by the owners they were able to claim back a tax refund in the first year to the sum of £55,762, which was an excellent result for the Client.


Tax relief available from Property Embedded Fixtures & Features has been around for over 100 years.  They are routinely missed due to accounting procedures only picking up on expenditure for movable items that are covered by an invoice. Our role is to identify and establish the full value of qualifying items that are embedded in the fabric of the property. Alongside its work recovering taxes for our Clients, we are also dedicated to supporting our peers in the tax industry by helping them to enrich their knowledge and understanding. We were part of the HMRC working party that created the new legislation, with a 100% claim record to date. Moving forward Capital Allowance Review Service are keen to continue to embed our services within organisations that both advise and support the commercial property sector.
