Potential client

Hi all,

I have a potential client who is a builder and he is looking to start up self employed. I am a little torn as to how to value his equipment. As he is not buying it brand new, it is difficult to put a value on them. Does anybody have any experience of this and can I still claim first year allowances on them once valued?

    You can claim relief for existing equip at its realistic market value as used, however you can not claim AIA, you can only claim normal CA's.
