Is there an age limit to the Plant, Machinery or Vehicles?
As a rule a machine should be less than fifteen years old and a vehicle less than ten.
Accounting for Sale and Leaseback
Sale and leaseback is treated as a refinancing exercise from an accounting perspective in accordance with FRS5.
This means that when the asset is refinanced, it would remain at its original stand in value, regardless of the agreed sale price. Treated as a capital matter, there would be no profit or loss to be written in the P&L account.
Any tax allowances attributable to the new lease would be adjusted to take account of the difference between the stand in value and the sale price.
Further information is available on the HMRC website.
