(c)the relevant interest has not been sold or, if it has been sold, has been sold only after the first use of the building,

the capital expenditure is qualifying expenditure.

(2)Subsections (3) and (4) apply if the capital expenditure has been incurred on the construction of a farmhouse.

(3)If the accommodation and amenities of the farmhouse are proportionate to the nature and extent of the farm, only one third of the capital expenditure is to be taken into account under subsection (1).

(4)If they are disproportionate, only such part of the expenditure as is just and reasonable (and not exceeding one third) is to be taken into account under subsection (1).

(5)If—

(a)the capital expenditure is incurred on the construction of any agricultural building other than a farmhouse, and

(b)the building is to be used partly for the purposes of husbandry on the related agricultural land and partly for other purposes,

only such part of the expenditure as, on a just and reasonable apportionment, is referable to use for the purposes of husbandry is to be taken into account under subsection (1).

(b)the expenditure was incurred for the purposes of husbandry as mentioned in section 361,

(d)a capital sum is paid by the purchaser for the relevant interest.

(2)The lesser of—

(a)the capital expenditure incurred on the construction of the agricultural building, and

(b)the capital sum paid by the purchaser,

is qualifying expenditure.

(3)For the purposes of subsections (1) and (2)—

(a)capital expenditure incurred on the construction of the agricultural building does not include any amount excluded from being taken into account under section 369(3) to (5), and

(b)the capital sum paid by the purchaser for the relevant interest does not include any amount which, on a just and reasonable apportionment, is attributable to assets representing expenditure in respect of which an allowance cannot be made under this Part.

(4)Subsection (3)(b) does not affect sections 562, 563 and 564(1) (apportionment and procedure for determining apportionment).

(5)The qualifying expenditure is to be treated as incurred when the capital sum became payable.
