Income tax Corporation tax. The First-tier Tribunal (Tax Chamber) (the FTT) allowed the taxpayer's appeal against the Revenue and Customs Commissioners' amendment to its corporation tax self-assessment return. The Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber) dismissed the Revenue's appeal and the parties appealed against that decision. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the FTT had properly interpreted of the Capital Allowances Act 2001. However, there was a very real concern that the FTT had misdirected itself in its approach to the inquiry under that section and its decision was too unsafe to be allowed to stand.
