3 Capital Allowances (CAs) Expenditure - plant and machinery, integral features, enhanced, land remediation and business premises; Sectors - all where Clients are subject to tax; Clients - investors, owner occupiers and in some cases developers; Transactions - new builds, refurbishments, acquisitions, disposals; Rate of relief - 10% to 100%; Tax reviews - immediate and significant gains achievable; Fee basis - no win / no fee. Capital Allowances Services for Construction Projects We believe that our success is a result of our ability to understand our client's requirements, adapt our services to meet the client's needs and work within defined parameters whilst at all times looking for further opportunities which may benefit the client currently and in the future. An outline of the services we provide our Clients includes: 1. Preliminary Tax Efficiency Design / Specification Report 2. Capital Allowances Survey - Initial involvement can increase the level of capital allowances available in a development by as much as 15%. This enables the Client to fully utilise the available tax relief within the period of investment. - Detailed property surveys allow comprehensive identification of all qualifying assets. On-site records and photographs provide documentary evidence to support our claims with HMRC. 3. Fully Disclosed Claims - Comprehensive and fully disclosed format and methodology recognised by HMRC, which obviates the need for common queries. 4. Construction Cost Information and Collation of Information 5. Final Claim and Negotiation with HMRC - Obtaining, or preparing, detailed cost information to substantiate and optimise the Client s capital allowances, as well as prepare a fully disclosed claim in a format accepted by HMRC. - Delays to a claim and any subsequent allowances caused by account and retention agreement delays can be alleviated by using our expertise to quickly finalise claims using reasonable estimates and achieve agreement with HMRC. - Our recognised fully disclosed claims reduce HMRC queries and eliminate the risk of a later discovery. Page 2 of 9

4 Capital Allowances Services for Acquisition Projects An outline of the services we provide our Clients includes: 1. Initial Entitlement Review - A comprehensive review of legal documentation and enquiries with the property vendors (and prior vendors if applicable) enables us to establish an initial entitlement to claim Capital Allowances for the Client. - We will determine whether there have been any prior claims, elections, or if there are any other potential restrictions, as well as the ownership of the fixtures, which could affect the Client s claim. 2. Capital Allowances Survey 3. Reconstruction Cost Estimates and Land Values - In order to optimise the Client s entitlement, a detailed onsite survey will be undertaken to obtain supportive records and photographic evidence. This will enable comprehensive identification of all qualifying assets which will assist in agreeing our claims with HMRC. - As a property acquisition includes a capital consideration for building, fixtures and land, a reconstruction valuation of these elements needs to be undertaken to establish the Client s capital allowances claim. - We are fully qualified to prepare reconstruction costs using our extensive knowledge, expertise and the latest pricing indices. We are also able to draw on the experience of our in-house qualified Chartered Quantity Surveyors. - In addition we are qualified in preparing detailed and fully supportive land values, using residual and comparable evidence where applicable, in accordance with the Valuation Office Agency s guidelines. 4. Fully Disclosed Claims - Our robust claims are prepared in a comprehensive and fully disclosed format, which is accepted by HMRC and obviates the need for common queries. 5. Negotiation with HMRC - The methodology used within our claims, as well as the fully disclosed format, reduces HMRC queries and eliminates the risk of a later discovery. Overage Capital Allowances for Acquisition Projects Overage Claim Entitlement - Legislation changes in April 2008 have enabled investors to prepare an overage claim on Integral Features, introduced with the 2008 Budget. Even on transactions where an election has been agreed, there may be entitlement to claim. - Therefore we will undertake a comprehensive review of legal documentation and any prior claims or elections to establish the Client s overage claim entitlement. Page 3 of 9

5 Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECAs) Expenditure - energy-saving and water conservation equipment, including lighting, boilers, refrigeration and rainwater harvesting; Sectors - all where Clients are subject to tax; Clients - investors, owner occupiers and in some cases developers; Transactions - new builds, refurbishments, acquisitions; Rate of relief - 100% first year tax saving; Tax reviews - immediate and significant gains achievable, strict qualifying criteria; Fee basis - no win / no fee.
