Capital Allowances for Care Homes

If you own a care home or nursing home, it is likely that you can benefit from a Capital Allowance claim. All the fixtures and fittings that you and your staff use as well as any updates and upgrades you’ve made to make it a lovely place for your residents to live could qualify you for a tax refund or tax relief.

Nursing Homes and Care Homes contain numerous items that may qualify as claimable under the Capital Allowances Act 2001. The kind of items which can be claimed for are:

  • Reception Desks

  • Grab rails and integrated mobility aids

  • Emergency Call Networks

  • Emergency Lighting and Fire Detection Equipment

  • Fittings in toilets, baths, and showers

  • Heating and Ventilation Systems

  • Air Conditioning

  • Hot and Cold Water Systems

  • Electrical Systems

  • Lifts

  • Suspended Ceilings and Partitioning

How much tax relief could a care home claim through Capital Allowances?

Within a commercial property valued at £750,000, there may be as much as £240,000 in unclaimed Capital Allowances. For a property owned by an individual that equates to a tax refund or future saving of as much as £96,000.

How do I claim Capital Allowances for my care home?

The first stage is to book an initial consultation which we can do in-person or online. We don’t do the hard sell; we just want to know as much as we can to help you as much as we can. We then speak to your accountant to gather some more information and then arrange for a trained member of staff to visit your commercial property. They gather information about the claimable items in the property and send that to a tax accountant to write a report which is sent to HMRC. Your claim is collected and sent to you less our success fee. The fee is 5% of the allowances that we identify for you. The process usually takes 8 to 12 weeks.
