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 bought a commercial property prior to April 2014?
  • Have you bought or sold a commercial property since April 2014?
  • 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.

Could this be you?

Case History – what can be gained?

When legislation is understood and applied properly, significant tax savings can be secured.  The case study attached illustrates a transaction where both the Vendor and Purchaser have secured tax savings and the property advisers involved are not exposed to the risks.
