Corporation tax services
Efficient tax planning can lead to significant improvements to your bottom line. Our corporation tax services team can help you take advantage of tax opportunities and reliefs and act on your behalf in discussions with the tax authorities.
Annual Investment Allowance
The Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) provides a 100% deduction against taxable profits for the cost of most plant and machinery, currently up to £1 million in any 12 months. Where a company spends above the annual limit in an accounting period, the excess generally attracts allowances at a lower rate of 18% or 8%.
The threshold has changed several times in recent years and the rules for periods straddling the change in limit can be complicated. Read more about AIA.
If you are planning significant capital expenditure, we can advise you on the best timing to maximise the tax relief available to you.
Transactions between connected parties could be caught by transfer pricing rules. A transaction may be adjusted for tax purposes if the rules deem that it is undervalued. We can help you navigate these rules

Advance planning is key to ensure that expanding in the form of overseas subsidiaries does not trigger unwanted tax consequences.
