Calculating the taxable profits: Capital Allowances: leasing
Special rules apply when a leasing business is carried on by companies in partnership. It is worth noting that many leasing businesses carried on in partnership will have been set up with a view to avoiding tax. The avoidance usually takes place about 6 years after the partnership business has been set up, when the losses have all been used and the profitable partner wants to avoid the deferred tax.
