Frequently Asked Questions
What is ‘Annual Investment Allowance’ and what does it mean for me?
Every year, businesses are entitled to claiming a significant monetary investment allowance which qualifies for immediate tax relief. In other words, it is a way to claim tax relief on capital used within your organisation, usually plant and machinery. It is important to purchase any capital with your financial returns before the fiscal year is taxed to ensure the costs of your purchases are deducted from your final revenue amount and therefore does not contribute to your final tax figure.
How long do I have to claim my investment allowance?
The deadline for this financial year is 31st March 2021. Make the most of this time and save money for your business by browsing our latest range of Ford vans, complete with hybrid alternatives for a cleaner and greener future.
What can I use my investment allowance to buy?
You may use your investment allowance to purchase any qualifying capital that you will use for your business (not for personal use). These items include integral features, fixtures (fitted kitchens or bathrooms in offices…etc), machinery, business lorries, vans and trucks. Cars do not qualify for the Annual Investment Allowance although business mileage and fuel cost may be expensed.
What can I not buy with my investment allowance?
The Annual Investment Allowance cannot be used to purchase items that will be used for personal use or solely for business entertainment, for example, a yacht or a jukebox. You must also remain as the owner of any capital purchased and not lease the equipment. Other items that do not qualify include land and structure replacements such as roads, or building structure replacements such as doors, gates, gas and water systems…etc.
What happens if I miss the deadline this year?
Unfortunately, you will miss out on 2021’s Annual Investment Allowance and will need to wait until the next tax year to qualify. Get ahead of the curve and visit your local Sandicliffe Transit Centre to take advantage of our latest offers on New Ford Vans.
