What is Super Deduction Tax?


As confirmed in the Spring Budget, the U.K. Government has introduced a 130% ‘super deduction tax’ for businesses.

The March 2021 budget had a pleasant surprise: you can claim a 130% Capital Allowance on all new computer equipment and servers (which fall under the category of “Plant and Machinery”).

The super-deduction will allow companies to cut their tax bill by up to 25p for every £1 they invest.

This will be in effect from April 1, 2021, until March 31, 2023.

What comes under ‘Plant and Machinery’?


  • Solar panels
  • Computer equipment and servers
  • Tractors, lorries, vans
  • Ladders, drills, cranes
  • Office chairs and desks
  • Electric vehicle charge points
  • Refrigeration units
  • Compressors
  • Foundry equipment


The plant and machinery must be brand new and not used for lease in order to qualify for the super-deduction.
