Capital Allowances – The New Fixtures Rules

Protect your reputation, manage risk and save your clients time and money!

This was not just CPD/CPE - this session sought to deepen and broaden your understanding of Property Taxation and hopefully change your thinking forever! For too long Capital Allowances have been considered an after-thought, potentially saving the client some money – but in the majority of cases Capital Allowances are ignored, or looked at long after the purchased transaction has completed. Poor understanding of the Capital Allowances rules leads to under-valued claims, no claims or inadvertently giving away Allowances too cheaply by acceptance of s198 elections for £2. Commercial Property Standard Enquires (CPSEs) regularly pose the pertinent questions, but responses seldom are conclusive – “information to follow” the most frequent retort… But a more robust, informed and rigorous approach will preserve the right to Capital Allowances, increasing transaction values for the client and potentially generate enhanced tax savings.

The new Fixtures regime introduced by Section 187A and 187B CAA2001 via Schedule 10 FA2012 makes it essential that the transaction due diligence now captures the relevant capital allowances details – otherwise the legislation stipulates the capital allowances will be NIL forever! Excellent and proactive communications during the transaction between the lawyers, clients, their tax advisers, surveyors and accountants – will enhance outcomes – ensuring client value is truly optimised.
