(1)In Chapter 5 of Part 3 of ITTOIA 2005 (property income), after section 311 insert—

Deduction for replacement of domestic items

(1)This section applies if conditions A to D are met.

(2)Condition A is that a person (“P”) carries on a property business in relation to land which consists of or includes a dwelling-house.

(3)Condition B is that—

(a)a domestic item has been provided for use in the dwelling-house (“the old item”),

(b)P incurs expenditure on a domestic item for use in the dwelling-house (“the new item”),

(c)the new item is provided solely for the use of the lessee,

(d)the new item replaces the old item, and

(e)following that replacement, the old item is no longer available for use in the dwelling-house.

(4)Condition C is that a deduction for the expenditure is not prohibited by the wholly and exclusively rule but would otherwise be prohibited by the capital expenditure rule (see subsection (15)).

(5)Condition D is that no allowance under CAA 2001 may be claimed in respect of the expenditure.

(6)In calculating the profits of the business, a deduction for the expenditure is allowed.

But this is subject to subsections (7) and (8).

(7)No deduction is allowed for expenditure in a tax year if—

(a)the business consists of or includes the commercial letting of furnished holiday accommodation (see Chapter 6), and

(b)the dwelling-house constitutes some or all of that accommodation for the tax year.

(8)No deduction is allowed for expenditure in a tax year if—

(a)the person has rent-a-room receipts in respect of the dwelling-house for the tax year, and

(b)section 793 or 797 (rent-a-room relief) applies in relation to those receipts.

(9)The basic amount of the deduction is as follows—

(a)where the new item is the same or substantially the same as the old item, the deduction is equal to the expenditure incurred by P on the new item;

(b)where the new item is not the same or substantially the same as the old item, the deduction is equal to so much of the expenditure incurred by P on the new item as does not exceed the expenditure which P would have incurred on an item which is the same or substantially the same as the old item.

Subsections (10) to (13) make further provision about the calculation of the deduction in certain cases.

(10)If P incurs incidental expenditure of a capital nature in connection with the disposal of the old item or the purchase of the new item, the deduction is increased by the amount of the incidental expenditure.

(11)If the old item is disposed of in part-exchange for the new item—

(a)the expenditure incurred by P on the new item is treated as including an amount equal to the value of the old item, and

(b)the deduction is reduced by that amount.

(12)If the old item is disposed of other than in part-exchange for the new item, the deduction is reduced by the amount or value of any consideration in money or money’s worth which P or a person connected with P receives, or is entitled to receive, in respect of the disposal.

(13)For the purposes of subsection (12), where the old item is disposed of together with other consideration, the consideration in respect of the disposal mentioned in that subsection is taken not to include the amount of, or an amount equal to the value of, that other consideration.

(14)In this section, “domestic item” means an item for domestic use (such as furniture, furnishings, household appliances and kitchenware), and does not include anything that is a fixture.
