How we help Short
Stay & Self-Catering
Did you know?
As the owner of a Short Stay or Self-Catering Accommodation property, you could be entitled to claim a specialist tax relief on the embedded fixtures that were in the building when it was purchased. It doesn’t matter how long ago the site was purchased or if original fittings have been repaired or replaced since acquisition.
In most cases, we identify 20%-30% of the property purchase price in unclaimed qualifying items. On average this amounts to £25,000 in tax savings!
Advice you can trust
Due to the extremely complex nature of tax legislation for embedded capital allowances, claiming this tax relief requires a team of tax and surveying specialists like us and is not something your accountant would have already claimed, unless they used a firm like ourselves.
Even if your accountant is certain this claim has been made on your property, it is very likely our dynamic and dedicated team will be able to identify missed qualifying expenditure and enhance your claim. You could still be missing out on thousands of pounds!

Testimonials: what our clients say
A ray of tax light! They were contentious and patient with us throughout and gave an excellent service! We had no idea about this part of the tax process. We would highly recommend that you contact them to assist you with your tax needs.
Mark Dimmock, Balnearn House Bed and Breakfast
I did think it was too good to be true, but as they pointed out, there was nothing to lose. I am very pleased with the tax refund, really amazed. Everything was dealt with very efficiently and professionally. I was kept up to date with proceedings throughout. I was also impressed with the speed that everything was done.
Rachel Fox, Beachmount Holiday Let
Great advice provided and a successful result with HMRC in reducing our taxation over the coming years. To be honest, I didn't fully understand and passed them over to my accountant, who understood immediately and approved their consultancy. The process was straightforward and they achieved the desired result. I am impressed with the service provided and my accountants have been given clear instructions on how to allocate the tax allowances. Big thanks for assisting us with this matter.
Jonathan Kaye, Cedar Manor Hotel
We can’t thank you enough for guiding us through the Capital Allowances reclaim process so efficiently and professionally! Without exception everyone has been so helpful and friendly. The entire process was so easy and quick and we have received a large sum of money which we simply would not have known we could reclaim! We are so grateful to everyone who helped us!
Mr & Mrs Carrington, Cheriton Bed and Breakfast
I was hesitant at first, usually if something sounds too good to be true, it is, but not with these guys. Completely hassle free and got us significant amount of money which otherwise we would never have got.
Lucian Coates, Hammonds Park Hotel
The whole process has been very clear, consistent and concise. The communication has been excellent and it felt like dealing with a family business; I wasn’t passed between multiple people. They completely delivered and have saved me thousands in current and future tax payments.
Sara Amil-Smith, Holmlea Bed and Breakfast
I was skeptical at first because I had never heard of ‘Embedded Capital Allowances’. After it was all explained to me (and after checking with my accountant), I was happy to go ahead. The process was extremely simple. They claimed a large sum of allowances on our behalf and proved me wrong in the process. I totally recommend having a chat with them, you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain!
Mrs Brint, Keigwin House Guest House
Great friendly service. They did exactly what they said they would do and saved us thousands in tax by carrying out a capital review of our business property. It was all agreed with the IR, no fuss or bother. Great service and very professional. We would highly recommend them.
Robert Down, Potters Moorings Hotel
On receiving a letter, I decided to query the claim with my accountants who are a major firm, Bishop Fleming. I was assured that the claim was worth pursuing. It was so worthwhile and the claim process was simple and did not entail lots of admin. I was staggered by the large refund I received. The claim is still being offset against current tax bills. I cannot recommend enough!
Diane Sime, Seven Stars Bed and Breakfast
Wow. I can’t fault them in any way. It is not often you receive a call that leads to over 100k in tax savings. Well that is what happened to me... Fantastic service, great people to deal with and a speedy outcome.
Bill Carless, Smythen Farm Cottages
We were recommended through our accountants. The team carried out a survey and put forward their capital allowances assessment in a very professional and timely manor with minimal input required from ourselves. The process was a success with claims that were greater than expected and were well worth the competitive fees charged. We would definitely recommend to anyone in a similar situation to ourselves.
Mr Clarke, Sunnynook Holiday Let
We were initially skeptical (as we are with any company which offers something for nothing), but what a nice surprise! They were true to their claim, brilliant to deal with, efficient, and saved us £’000’s in tax. Excellent and highly recommended!
