Managing capital allowances is difficult for many firms because they tend to ignore the dual nature of the task. Claiming this allowance requires both the knowledge of tax experts on tax legislation and case law, and the expertise of surveyors and property managers in examining building specifications, lease clauses and the like. This dichotomy arises from the fact that fixed plant and machinery have no statutory definition and have been the subject of extensive law. Further complicating the task of capital allowance maximization is the unclear distinction between repair and improvement. Measures to improve capital allowances management are discussed.
