Slightly different in the UK. We get a capital allowance which means you can claim the whole value against tax in year 1 while maintaining the balance sheet value of the asset with a balancing value.

There's a limit, but it's higher than most small businesses need to worry about.

For larger companies, it's still easier to slip a monthly fee of £150 through budget approvals than a one off very expensive laptop.
