Hofmann Megaplan offers advice about how to make the most of your tax allowance as a garage
Did you know your business could benefit from significant capital allowance measures?
1. Annual Investment Allowance (AIA)
Introduced in 2008, AIA is an allowance for tools and equipment which allows a business write off 100% of qualifying capital expenditure against taxable profits for the same period.
AIA is an incentive for a business to invest because it accelerates the tax relief available in the year of purchase, rather than over several years, helping cash flow and enhancing business growth.
The super-deduction tax break was introduced in the 2021 budget. It allows you to claim 130% of what you spend on qualifying equipment for your business against taxable profits until 31 March 2023. Super-deduction provides 25p off company tax bills for every pound of qualifying spending on plant and machinery.
What else can you benefit from?
In addition to AIA and the super-deduction you can also access the new 50% first-year Allowance and benefit from the Structures & Building Allowance for investments until 30 September 2026. Click here for more information.
What are the potential savings?
Depending on your expenditure on tools and garage machinery you could claim up to 130% against your taxable profit. For example, if you spend £10,000 on qualifying tools and garage machinery, your company can deduct £13,000.
