Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 103: Later claims

434.This section is based on section 38F(3) and (4) of CAA 1990. It provides that plant or machinery which has been treated as a long-life asset by one person must be treated as a long-life asset by anyone who subsequently incurs qualifying expenditure on it. This broadly means second-hand assets are treated in the same way as they were when new.

435.There is an exception to this. This applies for expenditure that is excluded from being long-life asset expenditure simply by sections 93 to 96. For example, an asset could be a railway asset to a new owner but not the former owner. In such a situation, the new owner’s expenditure would be long-life asset expenditure.
