Have you heard of the super-deduction tax break on capital asset purchases? You could save thousands!

It is the ideal time to upgrade your compressed air system or nitrogen/oxygen generators, as you could save thousands in cost!

Following the super-deduction tax announcement made in the budget, the next two years are a great time for UK manufacturers to invest in new plant and machinery, including air compressors, low pressure blowers, dryers, chillers and industrial gas generators.

What is the super-deduction tax?

The super-deduction starts on April 1st 2021 and will run for 2 years until March 31st 2023. It means that businesses can claim 130% first-year capital allowances against their corporation tax for main rate plant and machinery investments. 

This is a great incentive for UK manufacturers to invest in the latest, energy efficient compressed air and industrial gas technologies, which will not only improve productivity compared to competitors who use older equipment, but also positively affect the company’s long term sustainability and profitability. 


If you invest £100,000 in air compressors you can deduct £130,000 (130% of the initial investment) from taxable profits. As the current UK corporation tax rate is 19% you will save 19% of £130,000 on your corporation tax bill which equals £24,700. In this example it effectively saves about a quarter of the purchase price. 

Who is eligible?

Companies within the charge to corporation tax on or after 1st April, 2021. 

If you have already contracted the purchase it will not be covered. Likewise, if you are drawing down equipment from an existing umbrella agreement it is not covered.
