Andy Milnes, Senior Claims Specialist, explains:
“One of the strangest aspects of this subject, is that whilst the commercial property a business or individual owns is quite likely their most valuable asset, they are rarely aware of the opportunity for tax relief that comes with it.
In the case of commercial property, you need a specialised team to determine the qualifying items embedded in the property, knowledge of the relevant statutory HMRC formula and an understanding of the complex tax rules associated with these types of claims. All of this experience is applied to an embedded capital allowance claim.”
For many commercial property groups and larger funds, their in-house teams are highly skilled and equiped to manage multiple, significant cash producing investments. However, in many cases, we are finding that this often means that capital allowance are neglected due to an either a lack of understanding or preference to allocate resources into perceived higher yielding exercises.
By applying our specialist knowledge, our team can identify embedded items within your existing portfolio and produce significant claims. This is a risk free exercise that is guaranteed to improve your overall tax position through ongoing tax relief, and often, a sizeable initial tax rebate.
It is well worth any commercial property owner getting in touch with HMA Tax so that they don’t miss out on the significant tax relief that is available.
