The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley in association with Anne Fairpo provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
For companies, the taxation of intangible fixed assets acquired or created after 1 April 2002 is governed by CTA 2009, ss 711–906 (Part 8).

In practice, various anti-avoidance and transitional rules mean that while the assets will be brought within the corporate intangibles regime, amortisation and impairment relief will be restricted.
