Wear and Tear Allowance Reform



From April 2016 the Wear and Tear Allowance for fully furnished properties was replaced with a relief that enables landlords to deduct the costs they actually incur on replacing kitchenware, furnishings and appliances in the property.


The relief should cover the cost of replacing like-for-like or the nearest modern replacement and the costs incurred in disposing the equipment replaced less any proceeds received for the assets being replaced (if any)
