Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 480: Persons having qualifying non-trade expenditure: corporation tax

1703.This section is based on sections 528(3) and (4) of ICTA. It gives effect to allowances and charges for non-trade qualifying expenditure for corporation tax.

1704.Subsection (3) provides that excess allowances can be carried forward and deducted from patent income of later accounting periods so long as the company remains within the charge to tax. The second half of section 532(1) of ICTA does not allow a more generous offset of such excess allowances. See Note 62 in Annex 2.

1705.Subsection (4) treats charges in respect of qualifying non-trade expenditure as income from patents. This treatment allows charges to be reduced by allowances in respect of qualifying non-trade expenditure.
