842.Other circumstances are provided for in section 241. These circumstances are kept separate because section 241 is part of the anti-avoidance legislation.

843.This Act clarifies the rules that restrict the availability of first-year allowances in respect of additional VAT liabilities. See Change 28 in Annex 1.
