Changes and effects yet to be applied to Section 70YF:

Changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act associated Parts and Chapters:

Whole provisions yet to be inserted into this Act (including any effects on those provisions):

[F170YFThe “term” of a leaseU.K.
This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)The term of a lease is the period comprising—

(a)so much of the post-commencement period as is a non-cancellable period, and

(b)any subsequent periods which meet the conditions in subsection (2).

(2)The conditions are that—

(a)the lessee has an option to continue to lease the asset for the period (whether with or without further payment), and

(b)it is reasonably certain, at the inception of the lease, that the lessee will exercise that option.

(3)The “post-commencement period” is so much of the period of the lease as begins with the commencement of the term of the lease.

(4)A “non-cancellable period” is any period during which the lessee may terminate the lease only—

(a)upon the occurrence of some remote contingency, or

(b)upon payment by the lessee of such an additional amount that, at the inception of the lease, continuation of the lease is reasonably certain.

(5)If, at the commencement of the term of the lease,—

(a)the market value of the asset exceeds £1 million, and

(b)the estimated market value of the asset 5 years after the commencement of the term of the lease is more than half of the market value of the asset at the commencement of the term of the lease,

subsection (6) applies.

(6)If, in any such case, the term of the lease (apart from this subsection) would be 5 years or less, but—

(a)the lessee has one or more options to continue to lease the asset,

(b)on the assumption that it is reasonably certain, at the inception of the lease, that the lessee will exercise those options, the term of the lease would exceed 7 years, and

(c)on failing to exercise any one of those options, the lessee may be required to make a payment to the lessor,

it is to be assumed for the purposes of this section that any option to continue to lease the asset will be exercised, unless it is reasonably certain, at the inception of the lease, that the option will not be exercised.

(7)Subsection (6) does not apply if, leaving out of account any options that would, by virtue of that subsection, result in the term of the lease exceeding 7 years, Conditions A, B and C in section 70I (meaning of “short lease”) are met.

(8)See also section 70YC(5) (extension, for certain purposes, of term of lease that is not a long funding lease).]
