Scale of Capital Allowance Values

As a guide to the potential size of losses that could happen if the details are incorrectly entered. All industries have different levels of the Capital Allowance that could be available.

The actual value of Capital Allowance is calculated against the purchase price plus all acquisition costs – legal fees, stamp duty, surveys etc. plus allowable and unclaimed development costs.

Therefore, a £1,000,000 hotel could have £400,000 of Capital Allowances to claim giving £80,000 of corporation tax saving or up to £180,000 saving for a higher rate tax payer.

These tax savings can be considerable and both parties could lose them forever if CPSE.1 section 32 isn’t filled in correctly at the point of completion of the sales contract.
