The Super-Deduction Scheme was among the Government’s measures announced in the Budget to help businesses.
Aimed at organisations investing in plant and machinery, the scheme was the Government’s response to the significant falloff in investment that has taken place since the start of the pandemic.
From 1 April 2021 until 31 March 2023, companies investing in qualifying new plant and machinery assets will be able to claim:
The result is the super-deduction will allow companies to cut their tax bill by up to 25p for every £1 they invest.
Businesses can also benefit from:

A company incurring £1m of qualifying expenditure decides to claim the super-deduction. Spending £1m on qualifying investments will mean the company can deduct £1.3m (130% of the initial investment) in computing its taxable profits. Deducting £1.3m from taxable profits will save the company up to 19% of that – or £247,000 – on its corporation tax bill.
