    An asset that has a predominant rental use and a minor business use may qualify as an active asset if the minor business use is undertaken by an affiliate or an entity connected with the taxpayer, but the rental use is by an entity that is neither an affiliate nor an entity connected with the taxpayer owning the asset.

    All the uses of the asset (except certain personal use and certain uses from which interest, annuity, rent, royalty or foreign exchange gains are derived) are considered in determining what its main use is and, therefore, whether it is an active asset.
