Hi

Thanks for your question - I am Sam and I am one of the Uk tax experts here on Just Answer.

You seem to indicate that you bought the property in your name rather than the limited company - can you clarify?

Can you also advsie what the £16K was spent on (so please be more specific what improvements were carried out)

Is this a residential or commercial property - is it used at all in the limited company ? Or is it rented out to generate rental income

Thanks

Sam

Hi

Then these costs are only allowable once the property is sold to reduce the gain mad (which is then liable for corporation tax)

Thanks

Sam
