Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 186: Fixture on which an industrial buildings allowance has been made

673.This section is based on section 56C of CAA 1990. It restricts the amount of expenditure that may be taken into account if a person has claimed an industrial buildings allowance in respect of the fixture.

674.There is a general rule in section 9 that a fixture on which an industrial buildings allowance has been claimed may not be subject to a claim for plant and machinery allowances. However, this rule is relaxed if this section applies.

675.If this section applies, the qualifying expenditure is restricted to a proportion of the residue of the expenditure (as defined in section 313). This proportion is the proportion of the consideration that relates to the fixture on the transfer from the former owner.
