Capital Allowances: Annual Investment Allowance

The Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) limit will remain at £100,000 for expenditure until 31 March 2012.

For a business that is not incorporated and limited liability partnerships, this old limit of £100,000 applies until 5 April 2012.

The AIA, which provides 100% upfront relief for qualifying plant and machinery expenditure, will reduce to £25,000 per year from these dates.

However, although in many cases it may be beneficial to advance expenditure, transitional/timing issues mean that delaying expenditure may also be beneficial.
