Energy and water saving equipment could well become a much more significant business cost over the next decade with supply prices expected to rise and the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) adding the cost of Carbon Allowances for many medium to large organisations. Tax relief and energy performance are set to become more closely entwined and Davis Langdon is developing a suite of services to reflect this. Our Carbon Assessor software will be providing the management tool for emissions reductions closely relating to our tax relief capability. The 2008 changes to the UK Capital Allowances system have placed much greater emphasis on the Enhanced Capital Allowances scheme – offering 100% first year relief on qualifying energy efficient equipment - a much more attractive incentive than the 10% writing down allowance given on non qualifying assets. The Banking Team helps organisations improve their performance through effective risk and financial management.

Company description
Most overseas countries in which we operate have a tax depreciation regime based on accounting treatment, instead of Capital Allowances. Some use a systematic basis over the useful life of the asset and others have prescribed methods spreading the cost over a statutory period, not always equating to the asset's useful life. Some regimes have prescribed statutory rates, whilst others have rates which have become acceptable to the tax authorities through practice. From our experiences there is a need to embrace and engage local tax expertise who have a long and trusted track record of dealing with the tax or revenue authorities (at local and national level as applicable), not necessarily on depreciation, but on tax matters.
We can blend in our experience, an unrivalled 35 year track record of cost segregation skills, analysing construction costs and building components, for taxation purposes and offer a single point solution for clients. Most buildings will benefit from a cost segregation service under most regimes but new buildings of a high specification will most certainly benefit. Whether it is for Capital Allowances or tax depreciation, assets would need to be cost segregated and classified properly, to maximise the end result.
We would be pleased to provide advice and undertake a desk top assessment of expenditure that could qualify for tax depreciation, at no charge subject to information being supplied to us direct. The UK is not the only tax regime offering investors, owners and occupiers valuable incentives to invest in plant and machinery and environmentally friendly equipment, so what about the international picture? Davis Langdon’s Banking Tax & Finance Group operates internationally and in every instance the same fundamental skills are required.
