UK Property Business — Capital Allowances
Annual Investment Allowance
This section contains boxes to enter expenditure qualifying for Annual Investment Allowance and to allocate it to the Main Pool and Special Rate Pool as appropriate.
Max annual investment allowance available for period shows the maximum annual investment allowance claim that the company can make for the period, including claims made at Trade – Capital Allowances.
If you have entered an annual investment allowance claim at Trade – Capital Allowances, then the amount claimed will appear in this section as Trade total expenditure.
If there has been a change in the Qualifying expenditure limits during the period, then there will be two boxes for each of the Main pool and Special rate pool: one for expenditure before the limit change and one for expenditure after.
If part of the annual allowance is to be allocated to a group or connected company, enter the amount allocated in Amount claimed elsewhere. If the chargeable period straddles a date of change of the annual limit, enter the amount for the notional chargeable period and also include this amount in the adjustment for the chargeable period.
If the company also has a Trade, the amount entered will be reflected in the Annual Investment Allowance section for this activity.
Total annual investment allowance claimed shows the total amount claimed as Annual Investment Allowance in respect of the company’s UK property business. This amount is included in Total capital allowances/(balancing charges) at the bottom of the page. It does not include any claim made at Trade – Capital Allowances.
First Year Allowances
This section contains boxes for Electric charge-points, Zero-emission goods vehicles, Zero-emission cars and Other expenditure for both the Main pool and Special rate pool, as appropriate.
Use these boxes to allocate any First Year Allowance claims to the relevant category.
Total first year allowance claimed shows the amount you are claiming as First Year Allowances. This is included in Total capital allowances/(balancing charges) at the bottom of the page.
Use the First Year Allowances Super-deduction section to claim the 130% super-deduction.
Enter the amount of expenditure on which the claim is to be based. The uplifted amount will appear in the Claim column.
50% First Year Allowance
Use the First year allowances section, to claim first year allowances on special rate plant and machinery.
If applicable, enter the expenditure's balance in the Writing Down Allowance section.
Enter amounts in Additions under Special rate pool.
Disposal of Assets Subject to a Balancing Charge
If a company disposes of an asset which has been subject to a First Year Allowance super-deduction claim or a 50% First Year Allowance special rate plant and machinery claim, then a balancing charge may arise in respect of any disposal proceeds.
This section calculates the balancing charge and includes it on the return form CT600.
Enter at Proceeds the amount received for the assets. If the proceeds received for an asset exceed the acquisition cost, then use the acquisition cost instead.
The balancing charge equals the proceeds, uplifted for the relevant amount of the super-deduction relief received. The relevant amount is calculated as 1.3 times the acquisition cost for that portion of the accounting period which falls before 1 April 2023.
Thus, for an accounting period ending before 1 April 2023, all of the super-deduction uplift will be clawed-back.
For an accounting period which includes 1 April 2023, some, but not all, of the uplift will be clawed-back.
The claw-back is calculated as follows:
- Multiply Proceeds by 0.3.
- Divide the number of days before 1 April 2023 by the total days in the accounting period.
- Multiply the above two results.
- Add to Proceeds.
For an accounting period which begins on or after 1 April 2023, none of the uplift will be clawed-back and the balancing charge will be equal to the proceeds.
50% Special Rate Plant and Machinery Claim
Enter at proceeds only that portion of the amount received which relates to the First Year Allowance claim.
For example, if the FYA claim related to 50% of the asset, and disposal proceeds of £5,000 are received, then enter £2,500 here. The remaining £2,500 should be entered in in the Writing Down Allowance section, immediately above the Disposal of Assets Subject to a Balancing Charge section.
