Super Deduction-130%-Update – Applicable For Car Parking Lift Purchases

From the 1st of April to the end of March 2023, companies can claim 130% capital allowances on qualifying new machinery which includes car parking lifts and car lifts. This ‘super-deduction’ effectively means that for companies paying corporation tax at 19%, for every £100,000 they spend on a variety of assets they get a £24,700 reduction in their tax liability.


How does it work?

If you buy a new excavator for £100,000, that capital expenditure x 130% equals a £130,000 deduction from taxable profits. Multiply this by the current rate of corporation tax (19%) and you get a £24,700 reduction in the company tax bill.

The ‘super deduction’ doesn’t apply to used assets, but companies can still apply their standard 100% Annual Investment Allowance on purchases of up to £1m made before the 31st December 2021. This would give a £19,000 tax deduction on every £100,000 spent.

If you need to increase your car parking or storage with car parking lifts, the super deduction rate will make it much more affordable.
