Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 68: Disposal value on cessation of notional ownership

348.This section is based on section 60(2) of CAA 1990. It provides the disposal value when a person ceases to be entitled to the benefit of a hire-purchase or similar contract. There is a minor change.

349.Section 60(2) of CAA 1990 makes specific provision for the disposal value when a person ceases to be entitled to the benefit of a contract after bringing the plant or machinery into use for their qualifying activity. Subsection (2) gives the amount.

350.CAA 1990 makes no specific provision for the disposal value when a person ceases to be entitled to the benefit of a contract before the plant or machinery is brought into use. Subsection (3) fills this gap. The disposal value is the same as in subsection (2) except that, as the person was not treated as having incurred all the remaining capital expenditure under the contract, there is no need to take that amount away as a disposal value. See Change 16 in Annex 1.

351.Subsection (5) refers to section 229. That makes sure the disposal value in subsection (3) here does not disadvantage a person to whom a contract is assigned in a transaction which is within Chapter 17.
