130% SUPER-DEDUCTION ENDS 31 MARCH 2023Jan 16 2023
The 130% super-deduction for the investment in plant and machinery was introduced in the March 2021 Budget. The enhanced tax deduction is available to limited companies that acquire new plant and machinery between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2023. Companies should consider bringing forward plans to acquire new plant to benefit from this generous tax allowance. Note that the expenditure must be incurred before the 31 March 2023 deadline.
£1 MILLION ANNUAL INVESTMENT ALLOWANCE NOW PERMANENT
The 130% super-deduction for investment in plant and machinery only applies to limited companies, however the Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) is available to unincorporated businesses as well as limited companies.
In the recent Autumn Statement, the Chancellor announced that the AIA for expenditure on plant and machinery would become a permanent £1 million allowance.
The annual limit was originally scheduled to revert to just £200,000 from 1 January 2021 and has been extended twice to 31 March 2023. Businesses will welcome the certainty that this provides.
