Capital Allowance For Office Furniture: How Can My Business Benefit?

With office furniture having a massive impact on the comfort experienced at work, getting the right items is vital in allowing people to settle back in. This is something that has been recognised by the UK Government in the 2021 Budget.

From the 1st of April 2021 until the 31st of March 2023, limited companies can claim a 130% ‘super deduction capital allowance’ which effectively reduces their tax bills by 24.7% of the amount they have invested in furniture. With this representing just under a quarter-saving, many forward-thinking firms have already teamed up with furniture providers to take the government up on the offer. So, let us take a closer look.

Super Deduction Capital Allowance For Office Furniture

A capital allowance allows taxpayers to write off the costs of certain capital assets against their taxable income. This is taking the place of accounting depreciation, which is not normally tax-deductible, meaning that businesses can now deduct capital allowances when calculating their taxable profits.

Put simply, for every pound the company invests, their taxes are cut up by 25p.

There are two main types of capital allowances. These are ‘Writing Down Allowances’ (WDAs) for plant and machinery, and Structures and Buildings Allowances (SBAs), which cover the construction and renovation of non-residential structures and buildings.

Businesses can claim a 130% super-deduction (as well as a 50% first-year allowance) on office furniture as a WDA; creating an opening for firms to get great deals on new items.

Even if the business isn’t in immediate need of new furniture, a capital allowance provides an opportunity for them to source high-quality items, effectively futureproofing their workplaces and upgrading them for a fraction of the cost.
