Exempt activities to be separate trade

1Exempt activities carried on—

(a)by the NDA, or

(b)by a company while it is an NDA company,

are to be treated for corporation tax purposes as a separate trade distinct from all other activities carried on by the NDA or (as the case may be) that company.

Accounting periods of companies carrying on exempt activities

2(1)An accounting period of the NDA or of an NDA company ends (if it would not otherwise do so)—

(a)where it begins to carry on exempt activities, immediately before it begins to carry them on; and

(b)where it ceases to carry on such activities, immediately after it so ceases.

(2)An accounting period of a company which—

(a)becomes an NDA company, and

(b)is carrying on exempt activities immediately after becoming such a company,

ends (if it would not otherwise do so) when it becomes an NDA company.

(3)An accounting period of a company which—

(a)ceases to be an NDA company, and

(b)is carrying on exempt activities immediately before ceasing to be such a company,

ends (if it would not otherwise do so) when it ceases to be an NDA company.

Charges on income in connection with exempt activities

3No charges on income incurred—

(a)by the NDA, or

(b)by an NDA company,

in connection with the carrying on of exempt activities are to be deductible from its total profits under section 338 of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 (c. 1) (deduction of charges on income).

Finance leasing of plant and machinery

4(1)This paragraph applies where there is a finance lease in the case of which—

(a)the lessor is the NDA or an NDA company;

(b)the lessee is the NDA or an NDA company;

(c)the lessee is carrying on exempt activities; and

(d)the machinery or plant to which the lease relates is used by the lessee for the purposes of those activities.

(2)No allowance under Part 2 of the Capital Allowances Act 2001 (c. 2) (plant and machinery allowances) shall be available to the lessor in respect of qualifying expenditure on the provision of the plant or machinery for leasing under the lease.

(3)Expressions used in this paragraph and in Chapter 17 of Part 2 of the Capital Allowances Act 2001 (anti-avoidance provisions relating to plant and machinery allowances) have the same meanings in this paragraph as in that Chapter.

Mixed use of industrial buildings

5An identifiable part of a building or structure used for the purposes of exempt activities carried on by the NDA or an NDA company is to be treated for the purposes of Part 3 of the Capital Allowances Act 2001 (industrial buildings allowances) as used otherwise than as an industrial building.

Residue of qualifying expenditure on industrial buildings

6(1)This paragraph applies where—

(a)the NDA disposes of the relevant interest in an industrial building; or

(b)an NDA company carrying on exempt activities disposes of the relevant interest in an industrial building.

(2)Section 313 and Chapter 8 of Part 3 of the Capital Allowances Act 2001 (c. 2) (meaning of “residue of qualifying expenditure” and writing off of qualifying expenditure) apply to determine the residue of expenditure in the hands of the person who acquires the relevant interest as if—

(a)exempt activities carried on by the NDA or the NDA company had not been exempt activities; and

(b)all writing down allowances, and balancing allowances and charges, had been made as could have been made but for those activities being exempt activities.

(3)In this paragraph “relevant interest” and “industrial building” have the same meanings as in Part 3 of the Capital Allowances Act 2001.

(4)References in this paragraph to the NDA or an NDA company disposing of a relevant interest in an industrial building include references to the transfer in accordance with a nuclear transfer scheme of such an interest—

(a)from the NDA or that company,

(b)to a person who is neither the NDA nor an NDA company.
