Serviced Apartments, Holiday-Lets & Student-Lets

Helping you understand the tax savings that can be made on your serviced apartments, holiday-lets and student-lets through capital allowances.


Are you aware that you can claim (Property Capital Allowances) for Serviced Apartments, Student-Lets, Multi-Lets & Holiday Lets?

The lettings industry can claim for all the “assets” in the communal/non-dwelling areas of their letting properties.

This is usually 10% – 25% of the purchase price and development/improvement costs.

Property Capital Allowances for Serviced Accommodation, Holiday-lets & Student-lets.

If you own these types of property, you can usually claim Property Capital Allowances even if bought after 2014 and no claim was pursued at the point of the sales contract (i.e. separate rules apply to these classifications of property) As a firm of Chartered accountants who specialise in this area, we can virtually guarantee you that you are missing out on tax rebates from HMRC if you have not had a full Property Capital Allowance survey on your properties.

If you would like to know more, click here to get in touch with us.

Who Can Claim?

You must be a UK tax payer and be paying tax. Typically, you will receive a rebate against your last year’s tax, you will then be able to offset the Allowances against this year’s tax bill and if there is any excess, carry that forward to mitigate your future tax bills.

Q. Surely they have been claimed by myself or my accountant against all the invoices I have already paid and claimed for in improving my Serviced Apartments, Holiday Let or Student-let?

The answer is NO!

Unless you have had a survey report from an experienced Property Capital Allowance organisation (usually 12-15 pages with photographs and the list of everything quantified and claimable) then you have definitely NOT claimed all the Property Capital Allowances you are entitled to. These allowances have been enshrined in law since 1878 and are available to be claimed by commercial property owners.
