Tax deduction for building an extension for a home office


I look after a husband & wife business (Chartered Surveyor) run as a Partnership from their home.

Client has outgrown dining room office and is contemplating either building an office in the garden (ready made 'shed' office) or converting the unused double garage into a dedicated space - their preferred option.

I am interested in implications for claim back of VAT and what costs could be offset as an expense within the Partnership - for the building / purchase / conversion etc

Referencing this site and VAT help pages confident that VAT can be claimed with a personal use disallowance, but interested in others practical experience and whether anything other than the cap ex such as shelves etc could be claimed?
