Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 144: Amounts which cease to be attributable

553.This section is based on section 33A(4) of CAA 1990. It deals with cases in which deferred amounts cease to qualify for deferment. For example, if an amount is deferred, it may become clear (either during the six-year period or at its conclusion) that there will not be sufficient expenditure in the period to which the deferred amount may be attributed. In such cases the amount qualifying for deferment is retrospectively reduced as appropriate.
