Government extends investment tax relief 

The Annual Investment Allowance £1 million temporary cap will be extended until 1 January 2022.

A £1 million tax break to stimulate investment in UK businesses, to support confidence, is to be extended, HM Treasury has announced.

Businesses, including manufacturing firms, can continue to claim up to £1 million p.a. in tax relief through the Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) for capital investments in plant, machinery and integral feature assets until 1 January 2022. The extension of the temporary £1 million cap was originally due to revert to £200,000 on 1 January 2021.

This move is intended to boost confidence as companies look to weather the pandemic and plan for the future.
