Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 245: Effect of election under section 227 on additional VAT liability

877.This section is based on parts of section 76B(3)(a) and (b) of CAA 1990. It ensures that if the special treatment under section 227 applies, the VAT incurred by the lessee is subject to the same restriction as the capital expenditure to which it is related.

878.Subsection (2) states the effect of the section if it applies: the VAT element does not entitle the lessee to any capital allowances. This follows the similar prohibition in respect of the capital expenditure itself in section 228(5).
