If you have property interests or are an advisor to clients with property, get in touch to arrange a remote or an in-person meeting with our experts. We are open from Monday to Friday, from 9am until 5pm.
We are a multi-skilled team that covers all the required technical disciplines to deliver expert advice. These disciplines include chartered surveyors & valuers, specialist knowledge of complex legislation, chartered accountants & tax experts aswell as an ex-HMRC inspector and property lawyer, just to name a few. The CARS team includes a mixture of local ‘Stokies’ and those from a little further afield, plus a variation in age, gender, experience, and expertise. One way in which our team members do not differ, is their determination, excellent communication, and professional but friendly attitude to clients and colleagues alike.
A word from our Managing Director Chris Roberts
‘We pride ourselves on going about our business in the right way to help clients secure the available tax benefit. Having a business that has grown over a 20-year period without a sales team, shows how trusted Capital Allowance Review Service is.’

Our approach supporting clients and their advisors with property capital allowance claims ensures we help build and protect relationships.
Our process follows 3 simple steps.
1. Free Initial Assessment
We will discuss your potential claim and explain what information we require in order to complete our free initial assessment. Once we have the available information, our team of experts will review it accordingly to determine whether an approach and claim could be possible. Where a claim is possible, we will talk you and your advisor through a bespoke forecast claim illustration before progressing a full review.
2. Establish Claim
Once it is confirmed that an approach is possible and how the potential capital allowances could benefit your tax profile, the next stage is where we calculate the claim. Our project management team get in touch with you to organise your case and discuss arranging the surveying part of the process. After preparing a full inventory of property embedded items, our specialist team will determine the qualifying items by applying the appropriate legislation. It’s important to also remove any items that have already been claimed via accounting routines.
3. Tax Work
At the point the claim value is prepared, we then look to apply the claim to your tax profile. It’s important we carefully consider all the possible options to ensure tax savings are crystalised in the most efficient way. Your tax return is amended, and re-submitted to HMRC, by our tax team. Once completed, final reports are prepared and issued to both you and your advisor.
