Parogon Group

About the claim

Parogon Group had completed significant renovations and improvements to two restaurants. The costs incurred were extensive and therefore created the important task of securing the maximum level of tax relief using the tax breaks available. Their Accountant, DJH Mitten Clarke, applied good accounting routines to capture allowances that could be highlighted from the available invoices. We were then tasked with applying our process to enhance the level of allowances over and above what accounting routines secured.

Our approach

The first step was to gain a clear understanding of the works completed by gathering all available information relating to the renovations and improvements. Once we understood what had already been treated by the accountant we can start forecasting what our process could potentially achieve using our 20 years’ experience of completing reviews of this type.

Using forecasts, we were then able, alongside DJH Mitten Carke, to determine how any additional allowances secured would benefit the client’s tax position. It was clear any enhancement would benefit the client therefore the full process was started. This involved a detailed on-site survey reviewing all the areas that had been renovated. This is a crucial part of the process as it creates a clear breakdown of the items installed that invoices by contractors & suppliers rarely provide.

Examples of some of the embedded qualifying items that we found...

  • Bench

    Fixed bench seating

  • Partition screen

    Room partition screening

  • Storage unit

    Fitted storage units

  • Flooring tiles

    Non slip flooring tiles

Once a detailed breakdown of items is prepared and valued accordingly, we were then able to work through each detail to determine whether items qualify and for which tax break.

As a result, we were able to significantly enhance the level of Capital Allowances.
