Capital Allowances Act 2001

Paragraph 1

2005.This paragraph amends section 42(7) of TMA 1970. That provision deals with claims and elections in respect of activities carried on in partnership.

2006.The amendment includes a reference to section 129 (allocation of expenditure on ships to appropriate non-ship pool). This is included because this Act now provides for an election to allocate expenditure on the provision of a ship to the appropriate non-ship pool. See Change 21 in Annex 1.

2007.Sections 30 and 31 of CAA 1990 deal respectively with the postponement and bringing back into play of first-year and writing-down allowances. The rules for the different kinds of allowance are now dealt with by single provisions. For example, section 131 deals with subsequent claims for both first-year allowances and writing-down allowances that were previously postponed. But under CAA 1990, only claims in respect of writing-down allowances are dealt with in section 42(7) of TMA 1970. To ease the administration for partnerships, this Act ensures that claims in respect of first-year allowances will also be covered by section 42(7). See Change 65 in Annex 1.

2008.The references to sections 40B and 40D of F(No.2)A 1992 replace the references to section 68(5) and (9) of CAA 1990. These are new and arise from the new sections to be inserted into that Act by paragraph 83 of this Schedule.

2009.The references to sections 1 and 22 to 25 of CAA 1990 are not rewritten in this Act. They relate to claims for allowances and are covered by section 3(3) of this Act. See Note 1 in Annex 2.
