The UK government’s proactive approach to fostering economic growth is evident in its introduction of Full Expensing. This initiative aims to address the UK’s longstanding business investment challenges and make the nation’s Capital Allowances regime among the best in the world. By offering 100% first-year relief on qualifying investments, Full Expensing builds upon the monumental success of the 130% Super-Deduction introduced in 2021.
To benefit of Full Expensing:
- The investments must be in new and unused plant and machinery.
- The assets should be used for a qualifying activity, such as trading or manufacturing.
Businesses have demonstrated a strong preference for Full Expensing due to its simplicity and generosity, making it an attractive option for enterprises looking to amplify their investment strategies.
Just as the Annual Investment Allowance (AIAs) empower businesses to reduce their tax liability, Full Expensing is another feather in the cap of Capital Allowance claims. These are specific tax reliefs designed for businesses to subtract some or the entire cost of an asset from their taxable profits. Capital Allowances encompass various types, such as AIAs, Writing Down Allowances (WDAs), First-Year Allowance (FYAs), and Structures and Buildings Allowances (SBAs), each catering to different business needs and investment types.
