Revenue Note for Guidance
This section contains restrictions in relation to circumstances in which relief may be claimed. It also provides that reduced levels of qualifying expenditure will apply in certain cases.
(1) Relief under sections 372AX and 372AY will not apply in relation to construction or refurbishment expenditure on a building or structure:
(2) Relief will not be given in respect of capital expenditure incurred on the construction or refurbishment of a building or structure under any other provision of the Taxes Acts where relief is given by virtue of section 372AX or 372AY.
(3) The amount of relief which may be given in relation to capital expenditure incurred on the construction or refurbishment of an accommodation building is restricted to the amount of such expenditure which was eligible for certification by the mid-Shannon Tourism Infrastructure Board. This provision is to apply prior to any restriction which may arise by virtue of subsection (4).
(4) The amount of relief which may be given in relation to capital expenditure incurred on the construction or refurbishment of a building or structure which is located in a qualifying mid-Shannon area described in Part 1 (Clare) or Part 5 (Tipperary) of Schedule 8B (as inserted by section 29(1)(b) of the Finance Act 2007) is restricted to 80 per cent of the amount which otherwise would qualify for relief e.g. after the application of subsection (3).
(5)(a) The provisions of the Tax Acts (other than section 279) are to apply as if references to capital expenditure incurred were references to such expenditure reduced in accordance with subsections (3) and/or (4).
(5)(b) The provisions of section 279 are reapplied to take account of any reductions which may be made to capital expenditure incurred in accordance with subsections (3) and/or (4).
