Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 253: Investment companies

885.This section is based on section 28 of CAA 1990. It provides for plant and machinery allowances and charges for the management of an investment company to be treated as expenses or income of the business. These are subject then to the provisions in section 75 of ICTA.

886.Subsections (2) and (6) refer to section 75(4) of ICTA. That provides (after the amendment made by paragraph 15 of Schedule 2 to the Act):

(4)For the purposes of this section there shall be added to a company’s expenses of management in any accounting period the amount of any allowances falling to be made to the company for that period by virtue of section 15(1)(g) of the Capital Allowances Act (plant and machinery allowances) so far as effect cannot be given to them under section 253(2) of that Act.

887.Subsection (7) points readers to provisions in ICTA which deal with a change in ownership of an investment company by providing for an apportionment of allowances between accounting periods if necessary.
