Can I claim tax back on my garden office?

This evergreen question gets another look, this time by Helen Donkin, Director of Smart Spaces (one of their models is picture above). Writing on LinkedIn, she focuses on tax benefits including VAT and corporation tax, business rates and capital gains. Here's a snippet:
Can I offset the cost of my garden building against corporation tax?
As long as your garden building is not subject to planning permission and is considered to be a movable object, you may be able to offset the cost of purchase against corporation tax. All equipment that is bought for use within a business qualifies as capital allowance. And if the equipment qualifies as capital allowance, it can be classified as capital expenditure, which can be deducted from a business’s profits for the purposes of tax.
Well worth a read, though we would always recommend talking to your tax adviser before making any claims.

    Thats an eDEN Garden Room in the main image, not smartspaces. Maybe Helen should write about the copyright of images.

  2. Sorry, my fault, not hers. I've replaced it suitably. Thanks for letting me know.
