Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 376: Calculation of allowance after acquisition

1293.This section is mainly based on section 129(1) and (3) of CAA 1990. It provides the rate of writing-down allowances after a balancing event so the new owner gets the right total allowances over the remainder of the writing-down period. The “writing-down period” is defined by section 372(2).

1294.Subsections (1) and (2) give the rules for recalculating writing-down allowances. These apply if there is a balancing event and an election for a balancing adjustment. The residue of qualifying expenditure is spread over the remaining period.

1295.Subsection (6) adjusts the writing-down allowance for any chargeable period in which the relevant interest is not held throughout. This is the same rule as in section 375(4)(b).
