The case for a permanent investment deduction
Scenarios & Macroeconomic Modelling
This report is CBI‘s business case for a successor to the super-deduction regime. It investigates policy options the UK can deploy to maintain its global tax competitiveness and avoid a drop in business investment.
Background to the research:
- Investment incentives are set to fall in the UK. In April 2023, the Corporation Tax rate is set to increase from 19% to 25% at the same time as the end of the super-deduction regime.
- Before the super-deduction was introduced the UK ranked 30th out of 37 countries in the OECD for capital allowances and it could return there once the super-deduction ends.
CBI analysis, conducted in collaboration with Oxford Economics, shows that a permanent investment deduction (100% full expensing) could unlock:
- A 21% (£52.8bn) increase in the level of business investment per year by 2030/31.
- An increase in the level of GDP by 2.0% (£53.1bn) by 2030/31.
- While there is an upfront cost, the long-run net balance sheet impact is positive for Government.
