In 2014 new legislation came into force that dictated how Capital Allowances should be treated at the point of disposal or acquisition of a commercial property owned by a UK taxpayer.
These New Rules continue to be very misunderstood and the consequences underestimated. We see more and more examples where a property transaction has taken place and the new rules have not been implemented correctly, if at all, and the net result is taxpayers are losing a benefit that they should have been entitled to. In addition to this, property advisers are exposed to negligence claims.
- Are you in the process of buying/selling a commercial property?

- Have you completed significant property improvements to a commercial property you own or lease?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, please call and let our expertise clarify the situation.
