DOES THE SUPER-DEDUCTION TAX BREAK APPLY TO MY OFFICE?

The short answer to this question is ‘yes’. The super deduction tax break does apply to your office but only on qualifying purchases in certain categories. It also applies to other business equipment too. This blog gives you a quick overview.



In April this year as part of the budget announcement, the Government told us all about their new £25bn super-deduction tax break scheme. The scheme is intended to be highly beneficial for businesses. And the Government has hopes that it will aid economic recovery by encouraging businesses to invest in themselves.


WHAT IS THE SUPER-DEDUCTION TAX BREAK?

The super-deduction tax break allows businesses to claim back 130% of expenditure for new (or first year) business equipment against their taxable profits. This applies on qualifying purchases between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2023.

The super deductions will apply as follows:

• 130% of the costs of qualifying business purchases which would normally incur main rate capital allowances • 50% of the cost of qualifying plant and machinery which would normally incur special rate capital allowances.
