Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 35: Expenditure on plant or machinery for use in dwelling-house not qualifying expenditure in certain cases

200.This section is based on sections 28A and 61(2) of CAA 1990. It prevents expenditure incurred in providing plant or machinery in a dwelling house being qualifying expenditure. It applies to Schedule A businesses, overseas property businesses and special leasing.

201.Section 28A(4) of CAA 1990 provides for apportionment if expenditure is incurred on plant or machinery partly for use in a dwelling-house and partly for other purposes. There is no such rule for section 61 (which deals with activities known in this Act as “special leasing”). But section 79 of CAA 1990 provides an equivalent rule for reducing allowances. That has the same effect. See Note 12 in Annex 2.
