Section 614BB: Application of this Chapter
830.This section, together with section 614BC, determines whether Chapter 2 applies to a particular lease. It is based on paragraph 2 of Schedule 12 to FA 1997.
831.For the Chapter to apply, the conditions in section 614BC must have been met in relation to the lease at some time in a period of account of the current lessor (see subsection (1)(b)). But once they have been met in relation to the lessor at the time, they are treated as continuing to be met as regards any subsequent lessor unless and until the lease is assigned to a wholly unrelated person (see subsections (3) to (5)).
832.Subsection (2) provides that the Chapter does not apply to long funding leases of plant or machinery in relation to which Part 2 of CAA gives capital allowances to the lessee instead of the lessor. Chapter 10A of Part 2 of ITTOIA sets out the basis of taxation of rental earnings under such leases.
833.Subsection (6) is a necessary consequence of the split into separate provisions for corporation tax purposes and income tax purposes.
