Corporation Tax Act 2009

Section 1053: Qualifying expenditure on contracted out R&D

2745.This section defines what is meant by “qualifying expenditure on contracted out research and development”. It is based on paragraph 3 of Schedule 20 to FA 2000.

2746.The section does not reproduce the condition in paragraph 3(2) of Schedule 20 to FA 2000 that the expenditure is not of a capital nature. This condition is unnecessary because section 53 in Part 3 (trading income) already prohibits a deduction for capital expenditure.
