About the Claim

Our client’s studios were constructed to meet the highest standards, and designed with flexibility in mind, by considering the potential for future relocation. The design incorporated the ability to easily strip down the building to its shell if a decision was made to move to alternative premises. Our focus was on thoroughly reviewing the acoustical aspects of the building. We examined and distinguished between movable elements and those integrated into the structural framework. This in-depth analysis was crucial to fully understanding the complexities of the space and optimise the capital allowances claimed.

We then collaborated closely with the client to gain a deep understanding of the building’s mechanics and how it was specifically designed to accommodate the incurred expenditure. By combining the insights from our survey and the client’s valuable input, we carried out an evaluation of the eligible capital allowances. Our team used their expertise to identify and assess the qualifying assets within the studios, ensuring a thorough and accurate claim.

The outcome of our diligent efforts exceeded expectations, leading to an exceptionally strong capital allowances claim. The collaboration between our team and the client proved fruitful, resulting in a claim that maximised the available tax relief. The satisfaction of our client stands as a testament to the quality and effectiveness of our approach. This case showcases our commitment to providing exceptional results in capital allowances optimisation.
