(2)Sections 401 and 402 apply to old expenditure if—

(a)that expenditure was incurred on mineral exploration and access,

(b)immediately before 1st April 1986, no allowance had been made under Chapter III of Part I of CAA 1968 in respect of it, and

(c)after that day and before mineral exploration and access ceases at the source in question, the person by whom the expenditure was incurred began or begins to carry on a trade of mineral extraction.

In this sub-paragraph “source” has the same meaning as it had in Schedule 14 to FA 1986.

(3)For the purposes of Part 5—

(a)expenditure which by virtue of any provision of section 119 of CAA 1990 (read with any provision of Schedule 14 to FA 1986) was treated immediately before the coming into force of this Act as expenditure incurred on 1st April 1986 for any purpose or purposes is to continue to be so treated;

(b)any allowances treated as having been made under Schedule 13 to FA 1986 is to continue to be so treated;

(c)any amount treated as qualifying expenditure for the purposes of that Schedule is to continue to be so treated; and

(d)in relation to any expenditure to which paragraph 6(4)(a) of Schedule 14 to FA 1986 applied, section 424 does not apply (so that no deduction is to be made from the amount of any disposal receipt by reference to the undeveloped market value of the land in question).

(4)In the case of expenditure incurred in the acquisition of a mineral asset, nothing in sub-paragraph (3)(c) affects the time as at which under section 404 the undeveloped market value of an interest is to be determined.

(a)by virtue of any provision of this paragraph, the whole or any part of the outstanding balance (within the meaning of paragraph 1 of Schedule 14 to FA 1986) of an item of old expenditure is treated for the purposes of Part 5 as qualifying expenditure, and

(b)a balancing charge falls to be made under Chapter 6 of that Part in respect of the expenditure,

then, in determining the amount on which that charge falls to be made, subsection (4) of section 418 has effect (subject to sub-paragraph (6)) as if paragraph (b) of that subsection included a reference to allowances made in respect of the item under Chapter III of Part I of CAA 1968.

(6)Where the qualifying expenditure in respect of which a balancing charge falls to be made represents part only of the outstanding balance of an item of old expenditure, the reference in sub-paragraph (5) to allowances made in respect of that item is to be construed as a reference to such part of those allowances as it is just and reasonable to apportion to that part of the balance (having regard to any apportionment made under paragraph 3(2) of Schedule 14 to FA 1986).

Part 8Research and development allowances

(a)a person (“the transferor”) disposes of any interest in an oil licence to another (“the transferee”) during the transitional period,

(b)part of the value of the interest is attributable to allowable exploration expenditure incurred by the transferor, and

(c)an election is made in accordance with this paragraph specifying an amount as the amount to be treated as so attributable.

(2)Chapter 3 of Part 6 has effect in relation to the disposal as if—

(a)the disposal were a disposal by which an asset representing the allowable exploration expenditure ceases to belong to the transferor, and

(b)the disposal value of that asset were an amount equal to the amount specified in the election.

(3)For the purposes of Part 5 of this Act, the amount of any expenditure incurred—

(a)by the transferee in acquiring the interest from the transferor, or

(b)by any person subsequently acquiring the interest (or an interest deriving from the interest),

which is taken to be attributable to expenditure incurred, before the disposal to the transferee, on mineral exploration and access is the lesser of the amount specified in the election and the amount which, apart from this sub-paragraph, would be taken to be so attributable.

(4)An election—

(a)must be made by notice to the Board of Inland Revenue given by the transferor, and

(b)subject to sub-paragraph (5), does not have effect unless a copy of it is served on the transferee and the transferee consents to it.

(5)If the Special Commissioners are satisfied—

(a)that the disposal was made under or in pursuance of an agreement entered into by the transferor and the transferee on the mutual understanding that a quantified (or quantifiable) part of the value of the interest disposed of was attributable to allowable exploration expenditure, and

(b)that the part quantified in accordance with that understanding and the amount specified in the election are the same,

they may dispense with the need for the transferee to consent to the election.

(6)Any question falling to be determined by the Special Commissioners under sub-paragraph (5) is to be determined by them in the same way as an appeal; but both the transferor and the transferee are entitled to appear and be heard by those Commissioners or to make representations to them in writing.

(7)Subject to sub-paragraph (8), an election may specify any amount, including a nil amount, as the amount to be treated as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(c).

(8)Where—

(a)a return has been made for a chargeable period of the transferor, and

(b)the return includes, at the time when it is made, an amount which, disregarding the provisions of this paragraph, would be treated under Chapter 3 of Part 6 as a trading receipt accruing in that period,

the election must not specify an amount less than the amount included in the return unless the Board of Inland Revenue agrees the lesser amount in question.

(9)An election made in accordance with this paragraph—

(a)is irrevocable, and

(b)may not be varied after it is made.

(10)For the purposes of this paragraph a disposal is a disposal made during the transitional period if it is one made—

(a)before 13th September 1995, or

(b)on or after that date in pursuance of any obligation to make the disposal which, immediately before that date, was an unconditional obligation.

(11)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (10), the fact that a third party who is not connected with the transferor or the transferee may, by exercising any right or withholding any permission, prevent the fulfilment of an obligation does not prevent the obligation from being treated as unconditional.

(12)In sub-paragraph (11) the reference to a third party is a reference to any person, body, government or public authority, whether within or outside the United Kingdom.

(13)In this paragraph—

(14)All such assessments and adjustments of assessments are to be made as are necessary to give effect to this paragraph.

  • N is the net proceeds of any sales of the patent rights which take place in the chargeable period (so far as those proceeds consist of capital sums), and

  • Y is the number of complete years of the writing-down period remaining at the beginning of the chargeable period.

(2)If an amount is calculated under sub-paragraph (1) for a chargeable period, that amount is also the amount of the writing-down allowance for subsequent chargeable periods until another sale in a period for which U is greater than N causes a fresh calculation to be made under sub-paragraph (1).

(3)If a chargeable period is more or less than a year, an allowance calculated under sub-paragraph (1) or (2) is proportionately increased or reduced.

Balancing allowance on sale or expiry of patent rights

99(1)A person is entitled to a balancing allowance for a chargeable period in respect of qualifying expenditure if there is unrelieved qualifying expenditure for that period and any of the following occur in that period—

(b)in any other case, equal to the unrelieved qualifying expenditure for the chargeable period.

Balancing charges

100(1)A balancing charge is made on a person for a chargeable period in respect of qualifying expenditure if in that period—

(a)the person sells some or all of the patent rights, and

(b)the net proceeds of sale (so far as they consist of capital sums) from the sales in that period exceed any unrelieved qualifying expenditure for that period.

This is subject to sub-paragraphs (4) and (5).

(3)If there is some unrelieved qualifying expenditure, the amount of the balancing charge is equal to the amount by which the net proceeds of sale (so far as they consist of capital sums) exceed the unrelieved qualifying expenditure.
