Capital Allowances Book 2012

Publication of Bloomsbury Professional's Capital Allowances: Transactions and Planning 2011/12 (14th Edition)

By Martin Wilson and Steven Bone, Capital Allowances Partnership Limited


Comments on a previous edition:


"a useful tool for agents in practice who need a comprehensive guide to how this tax works" ICAEW Tax Faculty's TAXline


"It tackles capital allowances in an original and enthusiastic way ... This manual contains a myriad of practical detail and will easily earn back its cover price" Nichola Ross Martin


"I recommend this book ... it is set out by transaction rather than tax relief so you can go directly to the chapter that deals with the transaction in front of you ... Overall the book is written with the busy practitioner in mind" Rebecca Cave, Taxation magazine


The Capital Allowances Partnership Limited is pleased to announce the publication of the 2011/12 (14th) edition of Bloomsbury Professional's popular annual tax title.  This examines the technical aspects of capital allowances and similar tax reliefs on property and, in addition, brings together the issues most relevant to individual transactions. Focusing primarily on the corporate property transactions tax practitioners deal with on a regular basis, Capital Allowances: Transactions and Planning 2011/12 demonstrates how the taxpayer can save money by maximising capital allowances and related tax reliefs.


It explains the practical and technical aspects of capital allowances and the related tax reliefs on property. These include reliefs for land remediation, business premises renovation and R&D tax credits.


This well established and popular title offers a unique transaction-based structure and many special features making it an extremely practical and essential source of reference.




The 2011/12 edition has been comprehensively updated to cover all relevant practical developments, legislation and case law since the last edition was published, including:



It also includes a new appendix that provides detailed guidance for property conveyancing solicitors upon the completion of capital allowances pre-contract enquiries.


Packed with practical examples and user-friendly commentaries, this book is an easy way of getting ahead of the competition. It will enable you to maximise capital allowances and tax related reliefs on a wide range of commercial transactions.
