Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 474: Allocation of qualifying expenditure to pools

1684.This section is based on sections 520(2), 521(1)(a) and 528(1) of ICTA. It allows qualifying expenditure to be put into the pool either in the chargeable period in which it is incurred or in a later chargeable period.

1685.There is a minor change. This section allows qualifying expenditure to be allocated to a pool for any chargeable period subject to the specific provisions in subsections (2) to (4). So it allows qualifying expenditure to be added to a pool for a chargeable period after that in which it is incurred. It is unlikely that taxpayers will in practice wish to do so. But this flexibility is consistent with the approach taken for plant and machinery allowances in Part 2. See Change 54 in Annex 1.
