Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 183: Incoming lessee where lessor entitled to allowances

662.This section is based on section 55 of CAA 1990. It deals with cases in which a lease is granted in the relevant land and the lessor is entitled to an allowance. It also covers cases in which the lessor is not entitled to an allowance simply because the lessor is not within the charge to tax. The section provides when the new lessee may be treated as the owner of a fixture.

663.Because the section effectively transfers deemed ownership from the lessor to the lessee it is necessary for both to make an election for these provisions to apply.

664.One of the conditions for this section to apply is that the lessor is entitled to an allowance in respect of the fixture for the chargeable period in which the lease is granted. CAA 1990 deals with this in section 55(1)(b). However, it includes the words “apart from section 57”; section 57 deals with fixtures treated as ceasing to belong to a person. These words have no effect and have not been rewritten.
