Aggregate firms lobby for extension of super-deduction

The MPAs want tax incentives for investments in machinery

The MPA has submitted its police recommendations to the chancellor ahead of his spring budget, set for 15th March.

It wants the chancellor to reconsider plans for the increase in corporation tax that is coming in April. And they want him to retain the super-deduction tax relief scheme for new plant and machinery, which is set to end on 31st March 2023.

 That, says the MPA, would help producers of construction materials and industrial minerals to invest more in practical solutions to help the UK to deliver its decarbonisation goals, as would clear proposals on a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism and a removal of the cost of the Carbon Price Support from energy intensive industries’ energy bills.

The MPA submission calls for measures to encourage growth, including a medium-term freeze to the aggregates levy and temporary relief for sectors that had their red diesel entitlement removed but do not yet have access to machinery capable of using alternatives. Proposals have also been put forward to tackle inflation and support the delivery of major infrastructure projects through a more strategic approach to minerals planning.

MPA chief executive Jon Prichard said: “The anticipated changes to the super-deduction and the rate of corporation tax will move Britain from an optimistic fifth to a dismal 30th in the international tax competitiveness index. This represents a huge barrier to the investment needed for new housing and infrastructure, alongside our transition to net zero, and addressing these issues is a top priority for MPA members.”

Director of public affairs Robert McIlveen added: “Producers of mineral products are clear that there are a range of challenges that the chancellor could tackle in his Budget, all of which would help support government’s goals of investment and growth. The mineral products sector is keen to deliver for the UK economy, and a better tax and policy framework would help secure the investment needed for the UK sector.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
