What does the super-deduction mean for dental practices

What does the super-deduction mean for dental practices?

What, (you may ask), is the ‘super-deduction’? Put simply, the super-deduction allows your company to claim back up to 25p for every £1 you invest in ‘qualifying’ equipment assets.

The super-deduction tax opportunity runs until 31 March 2023; after that date, there is a planned corporation tax rise, so don’t delay.

The super-deduction enables dental practices to invest in the business and write this equipment off within the first year. This reduces the pre-tax profits, which may ultimately reduce the tax liability more than ever before. However, this is depending on your circumstances.

From a tax planning perspective, a Hire Purchase agreement has the same tax allowances as if you are paying cash for an asset. This enables the qualified asset to take advantage of the 130% tax break.

On the other hand, the super-deduction does not apply to leasing. This is because you do not have title of the equipment as it is a lease rental. However, as a slight aside, you are able to offset all the rental payments against profits using the annual capital allowances to reduce your tax bill (visit https://www.gov.uk/capital-allowances/annual-investment-allowance for further details).
