Good news for machine builders?

In its recent budget announcement, the Government indicated the availability of a new allowance that may prove to be good news for machine builders

Here is what the .Gov website states:

From 1 April 2021 until 31 March 2023, companies investing in qualifying new plant and machinery assets will be able to claim:

a 130% super-deduction capital allowance on qualifying plant and machinery investments

a 50% first-year allowance for qualifying special rate assets

The super-deduction will allow companies to cut their tax bill by up to 25p for every £1 they invest, ensuring the UK capital allowances regime is amongst the world’s most competitive.

The government has offered unprecedented support for businesses during Covid. Even so, pandemic-related economic shocks and the accompanying uncertainty have chilled business investment. This super-deduction will encourage firms to invest in productivity-enhancing plant and machinery assets that will help them grow, and to make those investments now.

See the Super-deduction factsheet for more information.
