Capital Allowances Specialists


Tenterden Consulting Limited

What we do

Tenterden Consulting specialises in providing capital allowances services across a broad range of market sectors where we have over 20 years of practical experience and technical expertise. Our clients include both large commercial businesses and small private clients with property interests in a number of market sectors, including:


Professional services


Property & real estate




Care homes & healthcare

Transport, distribution & storage


Hotels & leisure




Furnished holiday lets


Our significant experience of capital allowances issues has been gained over many years working in professional practice across a broad range of industry sectors. Some examples of the services we offer include:

Advice on the capital allowances issues for the acquisition and disposal of property interests, including lease assignments & transaction support


Refurbishment/fit-out project reviews to maximise claims for tax relief


Retrospective capital allowances reviews to generate tax repayments and increased future deductions


Development of capital allowances systems for ongoing capital expenditure commitments to help reduce future compliance costs

Reviews of expenditure incurred on the remediation of contaminated land to maximise claims for tax relief and where relevant secure tax repayments


Enhanced capital allowances reviews to maximise claims for tax relief in respect of qualifying energy saving assets


Advice in relation to lease inducements and landlord contributions


Advice in relation to the tax treatment of dilapidations

Our philosophy is to remain small so we can be focused on the needs of our clients. We will agree a timetable for undertaking your work with you. We do not believe in employing large teams of junior resource to service your needs as this often results in work being  duplicated to the expense of the client.


At Tenterden Consulting, what you see is what you get!


Our combination of tax and surveying skills gained from over 20 years working in professional practice result in more accurate calculations of tax deductible expenditure, generally achieving significantly better results than in-house tax/accounting teams.

Jonathan Medes, CTA - Managing Director

Jonathan's experience includes all aspects of capital allowances consultancy particularly in relation to commercial property fit-out/refurbishment projects, across a wide variety of sectors ranging from commercial offices, care home/health facilities, manufacturing facilities, hotel and leisure projects, infrastructure projects, transportation/distribution facilities and sports stadia.


We have focused heavily on the fit-out of large corporate offices, acting for both landlord and tenants alike, to maximise claims for capital allowances including reviews of energy saving/environmentally beneficial assets to accelerate the tax relief, reviews of landlord contributions and tenant inducements.






Magic Breakfast


Tenterden Consulting has been a supporter of Magic Breakfast since 2013 and during that time has donated almost £9,000 to this great charity (which equates to over 40,000 breakfasts!).


"Being able to support Magic Breakfast has been one of the highlights of running Tenterden Consulting. I have always believed that having a good breakfast sets you up for the day and hearing stories of children going to school hungry made me really want to support the good work of Magic Breakfast. In this day and age children in the UK shouldn't be going to school hungry but sadly this is the case for too many children. By providing a breakfast at school these children are better able to focus in class which will hopefully in turn mean they are able to do better at school." - Jonathan


For more details of the great work undertaken by Magic Breakfast please visit their website.

Ben - Advisor

In his Advisor role, Ben does far less advising and much more socialising but ensures the biscuit tin is topped up.




We focus on helping you to save tax and reduce in-house and/or outsourced capital allowances compliance costs. We understand our clients need to control costs and therefore operate a 'fair and reasonable' basis with regard to fees.


Our philosophy is that we would rather build a long term relationship with our clients, rather than seek a one off quick win.


We keep you updated with regard to our fees and are happy to agree appropriate fee payment schedules wherever practical.

Our focus is on obtaining the best results for our clients and supporting the tax compliance process. We work with both in-house finance teams and outsourced tax consultants to provide a seamless service.



Launch of New Tenterden Consulting Website

24 Sept 2016

It’s been six years since we launched Tenterden Consulting and in that time we have come a long way. After six years we decided it was time to develop a new logo and redesign the website, we hope you like the new logo and website.

Change of Address / Contact Details

24 Sept 2016

Not content with changing the logo and redesigning the website we also thought it was a good time to leave the beautiful Kent countryside behind and relocate our office to West Sussex (arguably just as beautiful as the Kent countryside!). The business operates across the South East (and beyond) and there will be no impact on client service or the location of clients that we serve. Combined with the office move is a change in the telephone number so please update your contact details to reflect the new office address and telephone number as follows:


Taylors Farm


Haywards Heath

West Sussex, RH17 5JJ

01444 456716


The old telephone number will include an automated message giving you the new telephone number if you forget to call the new number! If you are in the area feel free to stop by for a chat and a cup of tea/coffee. The biscuit tin will be closely guarded by Ben!

Hot Topics

20 Sept 2016

Commercial property development/refurbishment - Capital Allowances continues to be an area of focus for our clients who are incurring significant capital expenditure despite falling corporation tax rates and previous reductions in the rate of writing down allowances. If you are planning to incur capital expenditure on the development/refurbishment of a commercial property get in touch with us at the earliest opportunity and we can provide you with all the assistance required to maximise your claim for capital allowances.


Commercial property acquisitions – Changes to the Capital Allowances rules introduced in Budget 2012 for commercial property acquisitions (which came into effect from 1 April / 6 April 2014) are continuing to impact property investors and owner occupiers. Failure to deal with the Capital Allowances implications from the outset of the sale/purchase process can greatly affect the position of the seller/buyer. If you are intending to sell/buy a commercial property in the near future (or have recently sold/purchased a commercial property) then get in touch with us for some advice on how to protect/maximise your Capital Allowances position.

If you need a consultation or would like to arrange a meeting, you can contact us via phone or email.
