A Lincolnshire lighting company is urging businesses to take advantage of the latest government initiative, which offers huge tax savings and will drastically cut company operating costs.
Spencer Coffin, director of Procure Direct, specialises in reducing organisations’ utility bills by installing LED lighting, Solar PV and Far Infrared heating and wants business owners to capitalise on the Super-deduction scheme.
Announced on 3rd March and coming into operation tomorrow (1st April), the Super-deduction is a new 130% first-year capital allowance for qualifying plant and machinery assets, such as LED lighting.
According to Gov.uk: “The super-deduction will allow companies to cut their tax bill by up to 25p for every £1 they invest, ensuring the UK capital allowances regime is amongst the world’s most competitive.”
LED lighting is classed as integral features which fall under the plant & machinery category for capital allowances purposes.
Under the proposal, HMRC says that investments in plant and machinery will receive tax relief of 130% from April 2021 to April 2023, which includes integral features.
As such LED lighting qualifies as an integral feature for capital allowance purposes, it will be eligible for super deduction capital allowances.
“There has never been a better time to invest in LED lighting,” says Spencer. “LED is incredibly cost-effective without this incentive. The Super-deduction makes it a no-brainer. Not only will a company be reducing their corporation tax, but they will also be reducing their utility bills by as much as 70%!”
Established in 2005, Procure Direct has undertaken more than 700 LED lighting schemes across educational establishments, retail settings and commercial buildings, including offices and warehouses.
‘We believe the average saving of installing LED lighting is around 65%, and the average payback period is about two years. Not only does LED lighting make financial and environmental sense, the light quality it produces is far superior to traditional fluorescent tubes, creating more productive working environments and more welcoming retail spaces. With the government’s super-deduction coming into force, there’s never been a better time to move to LED.”
As well as installing LED lighting, Procure Direct offer free site visits and no-obligation cost-saving audits.
