Tax refunds and relief for hotel owners
Our service helps owners of Hotels identify unclaimed capital allowances and receive tax refunds. Our service is guaranteed to be fully HMRC compliant to get you the maximum tax refund.
If you own a hotel property and pay tax in the UK then you could be missing out on thousands of pounds of tax allowances. Embedded Capital Allowances are applicable to a host of fixtures and fittings embedded within a building when it is purchased and/or added after purchase.
Items within the hotel such as lifts, radiators, air conditioning, bathrooms, commercial kitchens, security systems and fire alarms are claimable. These represent just a few examples of items that are frequently part of a building when its purchased and included in an overall price paid.
Typically we would expect to find around 40% of the original purchase value of the property in previously unidentified Capital Allowances. £225K of allowances in a £500K property which translates as £90K in tax refund and/or reduction in future tax liability to a higher rate tax payer. So it’s an exercise well worth doing.
Claiming Embedded Capital Allowances is a risk-free exercise well worth considering when you own commercial property. You can estimate your total claim using our claims estimation tool or book a consultation with one of our claims specialists who can prepare an estimation on your behalf.
