Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 384: Exclusion of proportion of proceeds

1321.This section is based on sections 128(3) and 133(7) of CAA 1990. It apportions the proceeds from a balancing event to take account of:

  • other assets (for example land); and

  • expenditure excluded from qualifying expenditure (for example on a farmhouse).

1322.Subsection (1) is based on part of section 133(7) of CAA 1990. If part of the proceeds from a balancing event do not relate to assets representing qualifying expenditure, a just and reasonable apportionment must be made to establish the correct amount under column 2 of the Table in section 383 subsection (1). This can arise if, for example, part of the proceeds is attributable to land. There is a minor change in the use of “just and reasonable” in place of “just”. See Change 40 in Annex 1.

1323.Subsection (2) is based on section 128(3) of CAA 1990. It deals with expenditure on farmhouses and on buildings only partly used for husbandry. Only part of that expenditure qualifies for agricultural buildings allowances. So disposal proceeds for such buildings must be restricted in the same proportion as was applied to the expenditure. This subsection does this.

1324.Subsection (3) is based on the opening words of section 133(7) of CAA 1990. It makes clear this section does not stop the general provisions for apportionments applying in these circumstances.
