    End of attention

    You can claim a deduction over 10 years for certain other capital expenditure. The deduction is allowable in equal instalments over 10 years if it was incurred in:

    • connecting mains electricity to land on which a business is carried on
    • upgrading an existing connection to that land
    • connecting a telephone line to land being used to carry on a primary production business.

    These deductions are not available to a partnership. Costs incurred by a partnership for mains electricity supply or telephone lines are allocated to each partner and deducted from the partner's income.
