A practical, asset-by-asset guide to whether and when expenditure qualifies for plant and machinery allowances.
Save hours of time, and be confident of getting the right answer, when analysing expenditure for capital allowances claims. This practical and unique book, in A-Z format, explains when and why you can/cannot claim for the cost of more than 300 types of expenditure, including building alterations, barriers, car parks, clothing, demolition costs, tennis courts, ventilation systems, and much more (see full table of contents below).
The text provides clear, authoritative explanations as to what qualifies for plant and machinery allowances in given circumstances. Each entry includes appropriate statutory and case law references, together with HMRC guidance and the authors’ personal commentary, based on their practical experience of advising businesses on capital allowances over many years.
This book complements our Capital Allowances title and the two may be bought together as a discounted bundle – see top of page. Together, the two books offer more than 1,000 pages of practical and clearly written commentary, arranged in a user-friendly and accessible format.
