A short, less technical book aimed primarily at the business proprietor rather than at his or her professional advisers (but also suitable for non-specialist advisers).

The text provides an overview of the capital allowances issues that owners of commercial properties need to consider especially when buying or selling property. The book explains how to obtain and secure the tax savings, and also warns of how to avoid costly errors when seeking professional advice in relation to capital allowances.

The book includes a detailed appendix listing typical plant and machinery.
