Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 67: Plant or machinery treated as owned by person entitled to benefit of contract, etc.

345.This section is based mainly on section 60(1) and (4) of CAA 1990. It treats a person who meets the conditions in the section as owning the plant or machinery. This means they meet the general condition in section 11(4)(b) (that the person owns the plant or machinery).

346.Subsection (3) treats the person as incurring all the capital expenditure under the contract when the plant or machinery is brought into use for the qualifying activity. Subsection (4) treats the person as ceasing to own the plant or machinery when they cease to be entitled to the benefit of the contract if they do not then own it. These have implications for the disposal values given in the next section.

347.This section does not apply to expenditure on fixtures (see section 69) and subsection (3) does not apply to expenditure for finance leasing (see section 229(3)).
