(1)This section applies if, at any time before the four-year cut-off, a person (“the transferor”) disposes of a short-life asset to a connected person.

(2)Subject to subsection (6)—

(a)the transferor is to be treated as having sold the short-life asset to the connected person for an amount equal to the available qualifying expenditure in the short-life asset pool for the chargeable period in which the disposal occurs, and

(b)the connected person is to be treated as having incurred qualifying expenditure of the same amount in buying the short-life asset.

(3)Subject to subsection (6)—

(a)sections 217 and 218 (restrictions on first-year and other allowances in the case of certain transactions between connected persons, to obtain a tax advantage etc.), and

(b)sections 222 to 225 (further restrictions in the case of sale and finance leaseback),

do not apply to the disposal.

(4)Immediately after the disposal of the short-life asset, the connected person is to be taken to have made an election under section 83 (so that the plant or machinery is a short-life asset in his hands).

(5)In relation to the connected person, “the four-year cut-off” means the date that would have been the four-year cut-off in relation to the transferor.

(6)Subsections (2) and (3) apply in relation to a disposal only if—

(a)the transferor, and

elect that they should apply.

(7)An election under subsection (6) must be made by notice given to the Inland Revenue no later than 2 years after the end of the chargeable period in which the disposal occurred.
