Capital allowances: the new rules
The good news is that for expenditure incurred on or after 1 April 2008, for companies, and 6 April 2008 for sole traders, partnerships and some landlords, plant and machinery allowances are extended to cover expenditure on the addition of thermal insulation to all existing buildings used for trading purposes or let as commercial property.
Residential property businesses may instead qualify for the £1,500 per dwelling-house, landlord’s energy saving allowance to cover cavity wall, loft, solid wall, hot water system, draft proofing and floor insulation.
The allowance on insulation is restricted to the 10% rate but it is better than nothing.
