               Footnotes
               a) Long-lived plant and machinery attracted a 6% writing down allowance from November 1996 to March 2008, and 10%
               from April 2008 onwards. It also attracted 12% first year allowance for small- and medium-sized enterprises from July 1997
               to July 1998.
               b) Written down on a declining-balance basis, meaning that, if the allowance is 20%, then for each £100 of investment,
               taxable profits are reduced by £20 in the first year (20% of £100), £16 in the second year (20% of the remaining balance of
               £80) and so on.
               c) Written down on a straight line basis: with a 4% rate, then for each £100 of investment this simply reduces profits by £4
               per year for 25 years. Phased out in November 2011.
               d) From November.
               e) Applied from November 1992 to November 1993.
               f) From July.
               g) Only available for small- and medium-sized enterprises.
               h) 50% for small enterprises.
               i) 100% for the first £50,000 of investment.
