Marginal note:Recaptured depreciation
  •  (1) If, at the end of a taxation year, the total of the amounts determined for E to K in the definition undepreciated capital cost in subsection (21) in respect of a taxpayer’s depreciable property of a particular prescribed class exceeds the total of the amounts determined for A to D.1 in that definition in respect of that property, the excess shall be included in computing the taxpayer’s income of the year.

  • Marginal note:Idem

    (2) Notwithstanding subsection 13(1), where an excess amount is determined under that subsection at the end of a taxation year in respect of a passenger vehicle having a cost to a taxpayer in excess of $20,000 or such other amount as may be prescribed, that excess amount shall not be included in computing the taxpayer’s income for the year but shall be deemed, for the purposes of B in the definition undepreciated capital cost in subsection 13(21), to be an amount included in the taxpayer’s income for the year by reason of this section.

  • Marginal note:“Taxation year”, “year” and “income” of individual

    (3) Where a taxpayer is an individual whose income for a taxation year includes income from a business the fiscal period of which does not coincide with the calendar year and depreciable property acquired for the purpose of gaining or producing income from the business has been disposed of,

    • (a) for greater certainty, each reference in subsections 13(1) and 13(2) to a “taxation year” and “year” shall be read as a reference to a “fiscal period”; and

    • (b) a reference in subsection 13(1) to “the income” shall be read as a reference to “the income from the business”.

  • Marginal note:Exchanges of property

    (4) Where an amount in respect of the disposition in a taxation year (in this subsection referred to as the “initial year”) of depreciable property (in this section referred to as the “former property”) of a prescribed class of a taxpayer would, but for this subsection, be the amount determined for F or G in the definition undepreciated capital cost in subsection 13(21) in respect of the disposition of the former property that is either

    • (a) property the proceeds of disposition of which were proceeds referred to in paragraph (b), (c) or (d) of the definition proceeds of disposition in subsection 13(21), or

    • (b) a property that was, immediately before the disposition, a former business property of the taxpayer,

    and the taxpayer so elects under this subsection in the taxpayer’s return of income for the taxation year in which the taxpayer acquires a depreciable property of a prescribed class of the taxpayer that is a replacement property for the taxpayer’s former property,

    • (c) the amount otherwise determined for F or G in the definition undepreciated capital cost in subsection 13(21) in respect of the disposition of the former property shall be reduced by the lesser of

      • (i) the amount, if any, by which the amount otherwise determined for F or G in that definition exceeds the undepreciated capital cost to the taxpayer of property of the prescribed class to which the former property belonged at the time immediately before the time that the former property was disposed of, and

      • (ii) the amount that has been used by the taxpayer to acquire

        • (A) if the former property is described in paragraph (a), before the later of the end of the second taxation year following the initial year and 24 months after the end of the initial year, or

        • (B) in any other case, before the later of the end of the first taxation year following the initial year and 12 months after the end of the initial year,

        a replacement property of a prescribed class that has not been disposed of by the taxpayer before the time at which the taxpayer disposed of the former property, and

    • (d) the amount of the reduction determined under paragraph 13(4)(c) shall be deemed to be proceeds of disposition of a depreciable property of the taxpayer that had a capital cost equal to that amount and that was property of the same class as the replacement property, from a disposition made on the later of

      • (i) the time the replacement property was acquired by the taxpayer, and

      • (ii) the time the former property was disposed of by the taxpayer.

  • Marginal note:Replacement for a former property

    (4.1) For the purposes of subsection 13(4), a particular depreciable property of a prescribed class of a taxpayer is a replacement for a former property of the taxpayer if

    • (a) it is reasonable to conclude that the property was acquired by the taxpayer to replace the former property;

    • (a.1) it was acquired by the taxpayer and used by the taxpayer or a person related to the taxpayer for a use that is the same as or similar to the use to which the taxpayer or a person related to the taxpayer put the former property;

    • (b) where the former property was used by the taxpayer or a person related to the taxpayer for the purpose of gaining or producing income from a business, the particular depreciable property was acquired for the purpose of gaining or producing income from that or a similar business or for use by a person related to the taxpayer for such a purpose;

    • (c) where the former property was a taxable Canadian property of the taxpayer, the particular depreciable property is a taxable Canadian property of the taxpayer; and

    • (d) where the former property was a taxable Canadian property (other than treaty-protected property) of the taxpayer, the particular depreciable property is a taxable Canadian property (other than treaty-protected property) of the taxpayer.

    (4.2) Subsection (4.3) applies if

    • (a) a taxpayer (in this subsection and subsection (4.3) referred to as the “transferor”) has, pursuant to a written agreement with a person or partnership (in this subsection and subsection (4.3) referred to as the “transferee”), at any time disposed of or terminated a former property that is a franchise, concession or licence for a limited period that is wholly attributable to the carrying on of a business at a fixed place;

    • (b) the transferee acquired the former property from the transferor or, on the termination, acquired a similar property in respect of the same fixed place from another person or partnership; and

    • (c) the transferor and the transferee jointly elect in their returns of income for their taxation years that include that time to have subsection (4.3) apply in respect of the acquisition and the disposition or termination.

  • Marginal note:Effect of election

    (4.3) If this subsection applies in respect of an acquisition and a disposition or termination,

    • (c) for the purpose of calculating the amount deductible under paragraph 20(1)(a) in respect of the former property in computing the transferee’s income, the life of the former property remaining on its acquisition by the transferee is deemed to be equal to the period that was the life of the former property remaining on its acquisition by the transferor; and

    • (d) any amount that would, if this Act were read without reference to this subsection, be included in the cost of a property of the transferor included in Class 14.1 of Schedule II to the Income Tax Regulations (including a deemed acquisition under subsection (35)) or included in the proceeds of disposition of a property of the transferee included in that Class (including a deemed disposition under subsection (37)) in respect of the disposition or termination of the former property by the transferor is deemed to be

    (5) Where one or more depreciable properties of a taxpayer that were included in a prescribed class (in this subsection referred to as the “old class”) become included at any time (in this subsection referred to as the “transfer time”) in another prescribed class (in this subsection referred to as the “new class”), for the purpose of determining at any subsequent time the undepreciated capital cost to the taxpayer of depreciable property of the old class and the new class

    • (a) the value of A in the definition undepreciated capital cost in subsection 13(21) shall be determined as if each of those depreciable properties were

    • (b) there shall be deducted in computing the total depreciation allowed to the taxpayer for property of the old class before the subsequent time, and added in computing the total depreciation allowed to the taxpayer for property of the new class before the subsequent time, the greater of

      • (i) the amount determined by the formula

        A - B

        where

        A
        is the total of all amounts each of which is the capital cost to the taxpayer of each of those depreciable properties, and

        is the undepreciated capital cost to the taxpayer of depreciable property of the old class at the transfer time, and
      • (ii) the total of all amounts each of which is an amount that would have been deducted under paragraph 20(1)(a) in respect of a depreciable property that is one of those properties in computing the taxpayer’s income for a taxation year that ended before the transfer time and at the end of which the property was included in the old class if

        • (A) the property had been the only property included in a separate prescribed class, and

        • (B) the rate allowed by the regulations made for the purpose of paragraph 20(1)(a) in respect of that separate class had been the effective rate that was used by the taxpayer to calculate a deduction under that paragraph in respect of the old class for the year.

  • Marginal note:Rules applicable

    (5.1) Where at any time in a taxation year a taxpayer acquires a particular property in respect of which, immediately before that time, the taxpayer had a leasehold interest that was included in a prescribed class, for the purposes of this section, section 20 and any regulations made under paragraph 20(1)(a), the following rules apply:

    • (a) the leasehold interest shall be deemed to have been disposed of by the taxpayer at that time for proceeds of disposition equal to the amount, if any, by which

      exceeds

      • (ii) the total of all amounts claimed by the taxpayer in respect of the leasehold interest and deductible under paragraph 20(1)(a) in computing the taxpayer’s income in previous taxation years;

    • (b) the particular property shall be deemed to be depreciable property of a prescribed class of the taxpayer acquired by the taxpayer at that time and there shall be added to the capital cost to the taxpayer of the property an amount equal to the capital cost referred to in subparagraph 13(5.1)(a)(i); and

    • (c) the total referred to in subparagraph 13(5.1)(a)(ii) shall be added to the total depreciation allowed to the taxpayer before that time in respect of the class to which the particular property belongs.
