Land Remediation Relief allows businesses to claim relief of 150% of the clean-up cost from corporation tax for contaminated land, not caused or knowingly allowed by the company claiming, if the land is:

  • located in the UK
  • was acquired by the company to carry out its trade
  • at the time it was acquired all or part of it was contaminated
  • the contaminants are present as the result of industrial activity (although the Government is proposing to allow claims for the removal of naturally occurring radon and arsenic)
