Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 78: Effects of partial depreciation subsidy

376.This section is based on section 34(5) of CAA 1990. It deals with partial depreciation subsidies made in respect of cars over the cost threshold. Much as with section 77, it takes the place of Chapter 16 for cars, but otherwise has similar effect.

377.Subsection (3) deals with calculation of unrelieved qualifying expenditure carried forward. In saying that any reduction of a writing-down allowance under this section is to be disregarded, it goes further than section 34(5) of CAA 1990. See Note 21 in Annex 2.
