Capital allowances on solar panels - 8%?

Can company get 100% allowance on solar panels

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Just got client's data to do accounts to March 2019 and solar panels have been installed.  Client apparently told could claim 100% allowance by salesman but as far as I can see they count as integral features & only 8% allowance claimable.  Am I wrong & salesman right?

You can get AIA on integral features but as far as I know the enhanced FYA don't apply to regular solar panels.

If you categorise these are integral features, you need to be claiming AIA on them in priority to any AIA on the 18% pool additions.

If the AIA covers all your additions, you're grand.

The 8% rate only applies to the balance after you've claimed AIA, which, with a bit of luck, will be zero.
