Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 37: Exclusion where sums payable in respect of depreciation

203.This section is based on section 80(1) of CAA 1990. It deals with the general exclusion if sums are received to cover all the depreciation of the plant or machinery.

204.The use of “depreciation” is different from CAA 1990 (which refers instead to “wear and tear”). Depreciation is preferred as more familiar. It is also on the face of it a wider term. But in context it is thought to make no difference to entitlement to allowances. See Note 13 in Annex 2.
