The disposal of part of an asset is a chargeable disposal for tax purposes. Examples of part disposals might include selling two acres out of a five-acre plot of land, or the grant of a right or interest separated from other rights in an asset, such as the grant of a lease out of a freehold.
In order to calculate the chargeable gain or allowable loss, it is necessary to apportion the cost value between the part disposed of and the part retained (where appropriate, the 31 March 1982 value should be used; see the Indexation allowance and rebasing guidance note). Any expenditure which relates to the asset as a whole must also be apportioned. Expenditure that can be attributed wholly to the part disposed of may be deducted in full.
