Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 465: Future patent rights

1653.This section is based on section 533(5) and (6) of ICTA. It treats expenditure by a person on the right to acquire future patent rights as if it was on the purchase of patent rights – even if a patent has not yet been granted in respect of the invention. Relief would not be available to the payer without this provision.

1654.Subsection (2) treats the expenditure on the right to acquire future patent rights as if it were expenditure on the patent rights if that person subsequently acquires those rights.

1655.Subsection (4) gives corresponding treatment to the recipient of the payment. It treats the recipient as receiving the sum for a sale of patent rights even if a patent has not yet been granted for the invention.
