Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 133: Ship not used

521.This section is based on section 32(1) of CAA 1990. It withdraws any writing-down allowances made or postponed for a single ship pool if the ship ceases to be owned without being used for the purposes of the qualifying activity.

522.Relief for expenditure on the ship is not lost. Subsection (3) allocates an amount equal to the withdrawn allowances to the appropriate non-ship pool.

523.Subsection (4) makes it clear that this section does not apply as an alternative to section 132. Both sections could apply to a single event.

524.Section 32(2) of CAA 1990 is not rewritten in this Act as it merely ensures that definitions applying in section 31 also apply to section 32(1).
