Capital Allowance Super Deduction
budget 2021 - capital allowance Super-deduction benefits for uk COMPANIES
A Superb Tax Incentive for Companies to Make Much-Needed Investments in Plant & Machinery
In order to help stimulate business investment and promote economic growth, in the 2021 Spring Budget, the Chancellor announced the introduction of temporarily increased tax reliefs for the purchase of qualifying new plant and machinery, providing a capital allowance which exceeds the cost of the asset:
- A 130% first-year super-deduction capital allowance on most new plant and machinery investments that ordinarily qualify for 18% main rate writing down allowances
- A 50% first-year allowance for qualifying special rate assets that ordinarily qualify for 6% special rate writing down allowances.
The new Super-Deduction applies to all qualifying NEW plant and machinery purchased from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2023. The new super-deduction, however, only applies to NEW equipment and does NOT apply to second-hand equipment.
Examples of Potential Savings:
1. Example 1
Purchase Price = £15,000, Tax Deductible (130%) = £19,500, Total Tax Saving (@19%) = £3,705
2. Example 2
Purchase Price = £35,000, Tax Deductible (130%) = £45,500, Total Tax Saving (@19%) = £8,645
3. Example 3
Purchase Price = £70,000, Tax Deductible (130%) = £91,000, Total Tax Saving (@19%) = £17,290
4. Example 4
Purchase Price = £120,000 Tax Deductible (130%) = £156,000, Total Tax Saving (@19%) = £29,640
Why Buy Second-Hand?
With the fantastic benefits afforded to companies via the new capital allowance Super-Deduction scheme, the financial case for buying second-hand equipment no longer remains a viable alternative.
The new super-deduction allows you to cut your tax bill by 19p for every £1 you invest in plant and machinery!
