Did you know that LED Lighting is considered plant and machinery and therefore it is eligible for this tax relief announced in the recent budget? There are no restrictions on this claim for size or type of business.
The savings are greater still, as installing LED Lighting already reduces your lighting costs by 60-70%, and the savings you would obtain via the tax relief will only increase the saving a business can make. In addition, there is a reduction in long term maintenance cost, as LEDs have a working life of 15-20 years, along with a 5–7 year warranty.
The only restriction is, as always, the amount of annual investment allowance you are allowed.
There are two types of capital allowance claims:
The AIA allowance had temporarily increased to £1 million between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2020 and reverts to £200,000 from 1 January 2021.
