Between April and December 2014 over £1.6 billion in capital allowances went unclaimed – how can you ensure your clients don’t miss out?
Since April 2014, solicitors acting on property transactions have been obliged to raise the issue of capital allowances relief with clients. The changes to capital allowances rules mean that purchasers and sellers have to protect their right to claim allowances early, otherwise they risk losing the ability to claim forever.
In a recent joint research project, the Law Society and Catax Solutions have investigated how legislative changes have impacted conveyancing solicitors over the past year. The research also examined the procedures that have been put in place to deal with capital allowances. The results will be presented and your queries will be addressed during the seminar.
Why you should attend
It is imperative, now more than ever, for conveyancing solicitors to be fully versed in capital allowances due to their impact on commercial property transactions.
Who should attend
Never before has capital allowances legislation been so pertinent for commercial property solicitors with clients who are commercial property owners, long term leaseholders and crucially their advisors. If you are involved with any stage of a commercial property transaction; acquisition, ownership or disposal, it is vital you are aware of the changes. This seminar aims to equip you with the knowledge you will need.
