Louise prepared the capital allowances claims for us and we are happy with the service we received.

We had a few follow up queries regarding the treatment of some of the capital additions and she got back to us regarding these very promptly with further explanations.

I worked with Louise Barth when I was the FD of Gates Group, a Ford franchise, with a portfolio of properties across 3 counties and 10 sites. Our accountant did not have an in-house capability to tackle this specialist area of tax and recommended the firm that Louise worked for.

Louise was our primary contact at Gates for several years. She investigated our entire portfolio and highlighted countless possibilities for savings on property acquisitions, refurbishments, and a new development. She examined historic expenditure in minute detail, achieving savings I’d thought impossible, including on properties we had previously sold and then repurchased. Louise worked closely with our accountant and negotiated several trickier claims, leading to successful settlements directly with HMRC on our behalf. Her service extended to advice on the subsequent disposal of properties so that we could protect all our allowances.

Louise helped me to identify a considerable amount of allowances, which saved Gates a fortune in tax. I am still amazed by the breadth of her knowledge and experience, and by her attention to detail – there can’t be many people in the UK with such in-depth understanding of all the relevant, complex legislation. Louise was a real pleasure to work with, always responsive and highly motivated, with a 100% can-do attitude to her work.

I highly recommend Barth Consulting to any business owner who has any question about the potential of capital allowances savings for their company.

I have known Louise over the last 7-8 years of her professional career, firstly in private practice, then with Acadis and most recently as a sole practitioner.

I have always found her highly professional and enthusiastic about her specialist subject and her desire to help.

She has worked on 2 specific Capital Allowance projects for me and on both occasions, she has provided more in-depth knowledge and assistance when preparing my Capital Allowance claims than my retained general tax advisers. This has made the process of claiming such allowances easier and has undoubtedly resulted in higher claims than proposed by my retained advisers.

I would strongly recommend using Louise, especially if one is embarking on a major capital spend. Ideally, she should be involved as the project is being developed in order to understand how specification of differing products can impact the Capital Allowance claim. It’s especially important to ensure that invoices from suppliers are properly described so as to ensure that items that attract allowances are not inadvertently disallowed. Too often the focus on what expenditure attracts allowances is performed after the project has been completed and therefore it is too late to maximise the advice that Louise can offer.

Mike Gardner
Executive Chairman, Claremont

We have worked with Louise on a number of projects over many years and have always found her extremely knowledgeable, professional and helpful. Louise achieved some excellent results for us, saving us significant sums through capital allowance claims.

Louise has always been willing to provide advice and investigate our options, even where we thought there was no scope for a claim and this has occasionally led to savings being made on sites where we had otherwise not thought it possible.

Richard Manton
Director, T.P.S. Management Services Ltd

Louise has always been terrific to work with and has achieved fantastic results in claiming available capital allowances across different sectors, especially hospitality and residential-led developments.

We would happily recommend Louise to other developers and look forward to working with Louise again.
