Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 364: General rule as to what is the relevant interest

1255.This section is based on sections 125(2) and (3) of CAA 1990. It identifies the relevant interest in terms of the freehold or leasehold interest in the related agricultural land.

1256.In CAA 1990 this is done less directly. Section 125 of CAA 1990 first defines a “major interest”. The “relevant interest” is then defined as the particular major interest in the agricultural land which was held by the person at the time they incurred expenditure on the agricultural building.

1257.The concept of “the relevant interest” is similar to that for industrial buildings allowances. But it is not the same. In particular for agricultural buildings allowances the relevant interest is not in the building but in the related agricultural land.
