Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 416: Expenditure on restoration within 3 years of ceasing to trade

1442.This section is based on section 109 of CAA 1990. It allows certain restoration expenditure to be qualifying expenditure provided it is incurred within three years of the mineral extraction trade ceasing. The expenditure must meet the condition that it would have been either qualifying expenditure or deductible as a trading expense if it had been incurred before the trade ceased.

1443.Allowances are only available in Part IV of CAA 1990 on qualifying expenditure that meets the purposes of the mineral extraction trade test in section 98(1) of CAA 1990. That purpose test is not reproduced in this section. This is a change that is favourable to the taxpayer. See Change 47 in Annex 1.
