On 31 March 2006, HMRC published the latest in a series of Technical Notes setting out proposals for the reform of the corporation tax treatment of leases. This process started in 2002 with the publication of a consultation document looking at the reform of the corporation tax system, including the possible abolition of capital allowances in favour of a tax deduction for accounting depreciation.
This article considers the proposed changes, the drivers for changes and how far they are indeed a reform of the existing system.
