This 100% Tax Relief on IT Purchases.

Do I calculate my corporation tax and then knock off the cost of my new PC, or, do I knock the cost of the new PC off of company profits and then calculate the corporation tax?

You calculate profits and tax without the relief then fill in the right bits of your ct600 to get the deductions

You can deduct the 100% tax capital allowance from the profits before calculating the corporation tax.

You still have to make the claim for the capital allowance on the CT600 (Company tax return).

Being a numpty and steadfastly refusing to learn how all this crap works (otherwise why would I hire an accountant?!) - break this down for me:

If I spend 5 grand on a PC - how much would it *really* be costing me, presuming a turnover of about 60k and profits of about 30k?

....there must be an easier way to do this crap.... :(

Assuming taxable profits without purchasing computer equipment £30000, corporation tax would be £4750

Same taxable profits £30000, less £5000 purchase of computer equipment, corporation tax on £250000 would be £3562.50
