Tax refunds and relief for Doctors, Dentists and Veterinary practice owners

Our service helps surgery owners identify unclaimed capital allowances and receive tax refunds. Our reports are guaranteed to be fully HMRC compliant to get you the maximum tax refund.

Owners of medial practices are often unaware that their building is holding thousands of pounds of unclaimed tax relief in the form of Embedded Capital Allowances. These are allowances on items such as fire alarm systems, security shutters, lighting, toilet facilities – essentially everything that would remain in your property if you tipped it upside down.

Typically we would expect to find around 23% of the original purchase value of the property in previously unidentified Capital Allowances. £126K of allowances in a £550K property which translates as £50K in tax refund and/or reduction in future tax liability to a higher rate tax payer. So it’s an exercise well worth doing.

If you own a commercial property and are a UK tax resident, then you are eligible to make a claim. We specialise in Capital Allowances Tax Relief and our expert in-house team work exclusively in this niche area of taxation. On average it takes only 6 weeks from our initial meeting to you receiving your relief from HMRC.

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.

Recent Insights

Read our recent industry news and insights, written by our expert Capital Allowance specialists.

Embedded Capital Allowances can be claimed by various UK commercial property owners, and veterinary surgery owners are no exception. It may come as a surprise to some that vets could claim a great deal of tax refunds on their property simply due to the size of the property and the items inherent within the building.

The particular items that would qualify for a claim within a surgery are essential items without which the adequate treatment of animals would not be able to take place. Therefore, it is important for vets to claim the tax refunds they deserve on these important items, and further realise that these allowances are a right, not a privilege. The kind of items that would qualify may surprise some, and would include plumbing, electrical equipment, air conditioning, surgical equipment and more. These items are considered part of the building, and are often costly to run, which is why tax refunds can be claimed on them. If the veterinarian has been overpaying a great deal of tax, then it is crucial for them to claim back the money they deserve.

Aside from the tax refunds, there are further benefits to making a claim on a surgery. If a successful claim is identified, then this could positively impact upon the value of the property, which will benefit the surgery owner if and when they come to selling their property.

The process of making a claim is an easy and stress free one, with minimum input from the property owner and maximum output from us, the capital allowance specialists. On average, we find over £100,000 worth of allowances on every property, and we have a 100% success rate with having claims accepted by HMRC. This is a truly risk free exercise that could bring fantastic benefits to the individual veterinary surgery owner and their business.



Whilst Embedded Capital Allowances are heavily ingrained within vet, dentist & doctors surgeries, some plant and machinery items generate significant allowances when identified, valued, and claimed correctly. These include:

  • Reception Desks
  • Heating and Ventilation Systems
  • Air Conditioning
  • Specialist Equipment
  • Electrical Systems
  • Machinery to automatic entrance doors
  • Nurse Call Alarms
  • Suspended Ceilings and Partitioning


Probably not. It’s a highly specialised area of tax statute and requires very specific knowledge of this area as well as a specialist team that includes a chartered surveyor and a chartered tax specialist.

No, Capital Allowance claims do not effect the value of your property and don’t make any change to your Capital Gains position.

No, we submit all our claims to HMRC for approval and the refund comes from them. Our reports are very detailed and ensure HMRC have all the information they need when processing your claim.

Absolutely not. We look at claims for you on a results only basis, which means that if we do not find allowances that have been approved by HMRC, then we charge you nothing and any initial costs are covered by us. Our fee is completely linked to a successful outcome, so there is nothing to lose by investigating a potential claim.
