Capital Allowances Bill — 13 Feb 2001

Question again proposed, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

That is the end of the first sentence. To make matters crystal clear, clause 48(6) states:

"The business passes the hypothetical company test as a small or medium-sized company in relation to the expenditure in question if, on the assumptions in subsection (5), the company would qualify (or be treated as qualifying) as small or medium-sized under the relevant companies legislation in relation to the financial year in which the expenditure is assumed to be incurred.

In this Part "car" means a mechanically propelled road vehicle other than one--

(a) of a construction primarily suited for the conveyance of goods or burden of any description, or

(b) of a type not commonly used as a private vehicle and unsuitable for such use.

(AQE-TDR) X A--B

is not a terribly lucid explanation of how one goes about calculating one's balancing allowance as an employee? I pity the poor employee who has to use that formula.

Question put, That the Question be now put:--

The House divided: Ayes 238, Noes 31.
