If your business chooses to buy a printer or photocopier outright, the equipment is recorded as a capital expense, for which a certain percentage can still be reimbursed for Value Added Tax (VAT). Businesses are entitled to claim 40% of the purchase price against tax in the first tax year and 25% of the purchasing price over subsequent tax years as a reducing balance (to account for the machine’s depreciation in value).
