Changes to the small business tax relief system could have positive implications for retailers and resellers looking to increase B2B sales of computers and other equipment.

From April 2008, spending on capital items – those that a business requires to operate, such as PCs – will qualify for a 100 per cent tax break, up to an annual limit of £50,000.

"The present system means 100 per cent allowances are normally available only on certain environmentally friendly equipment," explained David Teale, director of tax at UK accountants and business advisers DTE to ERTWeekly.

"Taking advantage of the 100 per cent relief on spending up to the £50,000 annual limit can add significantly to bottom line performance – but only from April 6, 2008."
