If the vehicle is bought for £10,000 the capital allowance for year 1 is 40% -£4,000
but you can only claim the % used for cminding of that allowance say 10% or whatever you use,
the second year it is 25% of whatever the vehicle is then worth( the writing down value) and so on until the allowance is used up.
I would ring hmrc and just check.
