Other Business Tax Services

Here at Naylor Wintersgill we believe that as your growing business continues in its success you will benefit from the wider business tax advice, knowledge and experience within this firm. With this, we can also offer the following services in respect of:

Capital Allowances

Capital Allowances can be claimed on capital expenditure such as commercial vehicles and plant and machinery. It’s important to ensure that the correct capital allowances claim is made on your corporation tax return; whether that be under Annual Investment Allowance or under one of the enhanced capital allowance schemes.

We can help to review this for you and ensure that your capital allowances have been claimed appropriately.

Enhanced Capital Allowances

If you decide to buy a long term asset such as a building, you may be able to claim capital allowances based on this expenditure. This tax relief could be generated from capital expenditure on commercial property including the purchase of old or newly built property, construction of a new build property, building alterations, extensions, refurbishments and fitting out of a let property.

If you’re unsure if you’re eligible to make a claim, our team of experts have experience in successfully guiding our clients in this area and are here to help.

Research and Development Tax Relief

Research and Development (R&D) Relief is a government initiative which allows businesses to claim Tax Credits on any activities they have undertaken to improve growth and develop the business. Tax relief for expenditure on Research and Development has been available now for several years, however, there are still many businesses that haven’t properly considered whether they could qualify for this relief and are missing out.

Businesses that operate in a variety of sectors have made successful claims and in view of the fact that tax relief at effectively 46% could be available, it goes without saying that this is an extremely valuable relief and is a fantastic opportunity to retain some much-needed cash in your business.

Naylor Wintersgill has been very successful in this specialism and we’d be more than happy to help guide you through the process and make the claim on your behalf.

The Patent Box

The Patent Box allows a company to apply for a lower rate of Corporation Tax to profits generated from its patented inventions after 1 April 2013. Whether you’re designing a product with a view to obtaining a patent or already own or exclusively license-in a patent, our team can assess your eligibility to access this lower rate of Corporation Tax and make an election on your behalf.
