Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 530: Apportionment of sums partly referable to non-qualifying assets

1836.This section is based on section 97(4) of CAA 1990.

1837.The price paid for the relevant interest in the building may be attributable to things other than construction expenditure in relation to which relief may be given under this Part. For instance, an element of the price will usually be attributable to land. This section allows appropriate apportionments to be made of the price paid.

1838.Apportionment is also allowed for insurance receipts (and so on) – which are not sale proceeds. This prevents proceeds coming into the calculation of balancing adjustments to the extent that the proceeds are attributable to expenditure for which no relief can be given.

1839.Subsection (1) omits the reference to “or structure” contained in section 97(4) of CAA 1990. That was a mistake because those words are not relevant to Part IV of CAA 1990 although the equivalent words in section 21(3) of CAA 1990 are relevant to Part I of CAA 1990.

1840.Subsection (1) uses the term “just and reasonable apportionment”. Section 97(4) on which it is based uses “just apportionment”. This is a change. See Change 40 in Annex 1.
