Rishi's big 'business give-away!'
Your new 'super deduction' - don't miss out!
To help with the economic recovery, the Chancellor announced two new enhanced capital allowances. From 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2023 companies can claim 130% first year relief on qualifying plant and machinery. That means a super-deduction of 130% of the investment incurred on most business equipment!
Who Can Claim?
Companies that pay Corporation Tax and invest in plant/machinery on or after 1 st April 2021 – 31st March 2023. Sole traders, partnerships and LLPs do not qualify.(they qualify for AIA however)
Which Assets Qualify?
The Capital Investment must be in new and unused plant and machinery and there is no expenditure limit. Assets CAN be funded via Hire Purchase Agreements. The Special Rate relief is also a 1st year allowance of 50% for assets that would usually qualify for the special rate of 6% tax relief.
