Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 476: Disposal value of patent rights

1688.This section is based on section 521(2) of ICTA. It defines “disposal receipt”. It is the disposal value under this section or (in rare circumstances) under Schedule 12 to FA 1997 or any other enactment.

1689.Subsection (2) sets out when disposal values are to be brought into account.

1690.Subsection (3) sets out the amount of a disposal value under this section. But this is subject to section 477. That ensures the disposal values in relation to particular patent rights do not exceed the qualifying expenditure incurred on the purchase of those patent rights.

1691.There is a minor change. This section limits the amounts to capital sums. This makes clear that proceeds that are income are not both taxed as income and brought into account as disposal receipts. ICTA does not limit the disposal value to capital sums. See Change 55 in Annex 1.
