Shaun Woodward

Former Labour MP for St Helens South and Whiston

Incentives for Companies to Invest in Assets

The tax incentive for companies to invest in assets (eg. new equipment) is determined by the "annual investment allowance" - the amount spent on investing assets in a year which companies (or self-employed individuals) can deduct from their profits prior to the calculation of corporation tax.
