Capital allowances tax relief

What is capital allowances tax relief?

If you hold either a freehold or leasehold interest in commercial property, then you may qualify for tax relief through a capital allowances claim. You could be entitled to between 10-45% of money spent on property and its qualifying plant and machinery in tax relief.
