Brown Field Allowances

Following the announcement on 7 September 2012 that the Government would introduce a Brown Field Allowance (BFA), HMT has circulated a note giving further information on the BFA qualification criteria and the process for BFA cost verification. Companies undertaking incremental projects that might be eligible for a BFA are advised to ensure they are familiar with this process if they wish those projects to qualify for the allowance.
