We instructed Catax to investigate the Capital Allowances opportunity in our property prior to exit in September 2014.
As a Limited Partnership with both UK on-shore and off-shore investors, the investment had a complex ownership structure. Despite this, Catax was able to provide us with a tailor-made solution that successfully secured a significant tax benefit through unclaimed Capital Allowances.
The Catax team kept us up-to-date at each stage of the transaction and on completion of the process, each beneficiary received a detailed breakdown of their Capital Allowances benefit dependent upon their personal circumstances. The exercise resulted in higher rate tax payers benefitting from £9,174 in Capital Allowances per £25,000 tranche invested in the deal.
Highly knowledgeable in this niche area of tax, the Catax team were proactive in addressing all our queries from the instruction stage through to receiving our initial benefit analysis. The process was executed with precision and in line with our expectations.
As a result of this exercise our investors received an initial substantial benefit and have continued to feel the positive effects of on-going reduced tax liabilities.
Catax are now our appointed Capital Allowances adviser for all retrospective and current year claims within our portfolio. They have also been instructed to provide advice in connection with all commercial property acquisitions and disposals. As such, we would recommend Catax to any commercial property owner due to their experienced team, streamlined process and the significant claims they are able to identify.
