Capital Allowances Act 2001

Paragraph 55

2061.This paragraph is based on section 82 of CAA 1990. It provides for expenditure which was:

  • incurred before 6 April 1976; and

  • was not eligible expenditure within section 39 of FA 1976

to be unaffected by the Act.

2062.The type of expenditure that is involved relates back to before the introduction of pooling in FA 1971. Expenditure could not be pooled under the FA 1971 provisions if it was incurred before 27 October 1970. In 1976, remaining expenditure which was still not pooled could be pooled but an exception was made for some types of expenditure, broadly those things that would be in single asset pools.

2063.In CAA 1990 the position was preserved by section 82 of CAA 1990. This disapplied CAA 1990 and all its repeals for this expenditure so that it continued to be treated as before, without being pooled.

2064.It is impossible to say whether any of these pools are still in existence and it is equally impossible to say that there are none. This paragraph therefore preserves the position.
