Hi,

This would depend on whether you are using the cash basis method or the traditional accounting method.

If using the cash basis method you would claim the cost of the van back as an expense.

If using the traditional method then you can claim the cost of the van as a capital allowance.

I have given you a link to our capital allowances helpsheet to have a look at:

You also need to take into account whether the van is being used also for personal use. If it is, you can still claim as stated, but you would only claim a proportional amount based on the business use only.
