Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 553: Consideration to be treated as nil

1925.This section is based on parts of section 118A of CAA 1990 and section 196 of TCGA 1992. Section 118A is in Part IV of CAA 1990 but also has effect for Part VII of CAA 1990.

1926.The section treats certain consideration as having no value on the disposal of an oil licence relating to an undeveloped area.

1927.Disregarding some of the consideration affects the allowances and charges in Parts 5 and 6 that are associated with the acquisition or disposal of the oil licence concerned. Broadly, the “seller” may suffer a lower balancing charge and the purchaser may get lower allowances if this section applies.

1928.Subsection (3) might seem to use a different definition of “material disposal” from section 118A(2) of CAA 1990 but this is not the case. See Note 71 of Annex 2.
