Care home owners are increasingly becoming aware of the fact that their commercial properties are holding thousands of pounds in unclaimed tax relief in the form of Embedded Capital Allowances.
Care home owners are able to claim this significant tax relief on items that are considered to be part of the property, such as air conditioning, heating systems, boilers, kitchen and toilet fittings, security systems and more.
Whilst this isn’t news for some, many commercial property owners are still missing out on this highly sought-after tax relief. This is often due to a false belief that their accountant has claimed the allowances on their behalf.
Own a carehome?
Claim 35% of the original purchase value in previously unclaimed capital allowances
To identify, value and claim items embedded within a care home or aged care facility, a qualified professional requires the following;
a) Significant expertise in commercial property surveying. This includes understanding building and construction methodologies as well as UK industry standards and specialist knowledge of items likely hidden or missed within a carehome claim.
b) An understanding of how to implement the statutory formulas that HMRC consider the value of an embedded item within the property; and
c) Detailed comprehension of the UK’s complex tax guidelines, specific to commercial property ownership and compliant claiming of Embedded Capital Allowances.
These three requirements are needed for a successful Embedded Capital Allowance claim, which the award-winning team at HMA Tax are all too familiar with.

“Whilst a commercial property and it’s embedded items are likely to be the most valuable asset for a business, in the case for a care home it is often the least known or least acted upon incentive for ongoing relief and tax rebates”
It’s important care home Capital Allowances are claimed, as the opportunity for tax relief is quite significant at approximately 35% of the property’s purchase price.”
