Capital Allowances

Our team of chartered quantity surveyors and tax professionals can work with you to prepare robust and compliant tax depreciation/capital allowances.

We are recognised as Ireland’s leading advisers on capital allowances.

KPMG’s Capital Allowances and Tax Depreciation group is recognised as Ireland’s leading advisers on capital allowances. We are the only Big 4 firm in Ireland to have a dedicated multidisciplinary capital allowances team and we are partner lead. For over 20 years, we have successfully prepared, negotiated and settled claims for all types of property investments for a wide cross-section of clients – from individuals and small companies to large multinationals. Our dedicated team consists of full-time chartered quantity surveyors and tax professionals who work solely on preparing fair and compliant tax depreciation / capital allowances claims for our clients.

Our experience has shown that capital allowances / tax depreciation claims are often understated, which results in taxpayers leaving behind valuable tax/cash savings. We can help rectify the situation and identify your full entitlement. The combination of extensive knowledge of the construction, property, surveying, tax and accounting fields is a unique offering in Ireland, and our unrivalled experience helps ensure our clients claim their appropriate entitlement.

Since our foundation, we have built a bespoke claim methodology, which has been tried and tested under a significant number of Revenue audits.

Benefits of claiming capital allowances

  • Claim an immediate tax benefit.
  • Make appropriate tax payments only.
  • Achieve resulting cash flow benefits.
