David Bywater, tax partner at KPMG Enterprise, comments on announcement that the Annual Investment Allowance will be fixed at its highest permanent level.
“The Annual Investment Allowance has been up and down like a yo-yo over the last few years, so today’s announcement gives much-needed certainty to the army of small and medium-sized businesses up and down the UK, hopefully encouraging them to invest in new plant and equipment.
“Britain’s makers, doers and growers will see particular benefit from this. So often, new equipment and technology is the key to improved productivity for our manufacturers, retailers and agricultural businesses, so stimulating investment from them will go a long way to helping address the UK’s productivity gap.”
