Many UK businesses have unclaimed capital allowances within their commercial buildings.

Whilst capital allowances on many moveable items may have been claimed, our team of qualified tax specialists in conjunction with an independent firm of RICS qualified Quantity Surveyors, can identify additional items that have remained unclaimed.

Through a detailed onsite survey and in-depth knowledge of the Capital Allowances legislation, we can in most cases secure you a tax refund.

There is no financial risk to you; the charges for the survey and claim are calculated as a percentage of the additional Capital Allowance identified and claimed.
