36Co-ownership authorised contractual schemesE+W

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)This Act (with the exception of the provisions mentioned in subsection (9)), and TCMA as it applies in relation to land transaction tax, apply in relation to a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme as if—

(a)the scheme were a company, and

(b)the rights of the participants were shares in the company.

(2)An “"umbrella COACS”” means a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme—

(a)whose arrangements provide for separate pooling of the contributions of the participants and the profits or income out of which payments are made to them (““pooling arrangements””), and

(b)under which the participants are entitled to exchange rights in one pool for rights in another.

(3)A “"sub-scheme””, in relation to an umbrella COACS, means such of the pooling arrangements as relate to a separate pool.

(4)Each of the sub-schemes of an umbrella COACS is to be regarded as a separate co-ownership authorised contractual scheme, and the umbrella COACS as a whole is not so regarded.

(5)In relation to a sub-scheme of an umbrella COACS—

(a)references to chargeable interests are references to such of the chargeable interests as, under the pooling arrangements, form part of the separate pool to which the sub-scheme relates, and

(b)references to the scheme documents are references to such parts of the documents as apply to the sub-scheme.

(6)References to a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme are treated as including a collective investment scheme which—

(a)is constituted under the law of an EEA State other than the United Kingdom by a contract,

(b)is managed by a body corporate incorporated under the law of an EEA State, and

(c)is authorised under the law of the EEA State mentioned in paragraph (a) in a way which makes it, under that law, the equivalent of a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme as defined in subsection (7),

provided that, apart from this section, no charge to tax is capable of arising to the scheme under this Act.

(7)Subject to any regulations under subsection (8)—

  • "co-ownership authorised contractual scheme”” (“"cynllun contractiol awdurdodedig cyfberchnogaeth”") means a co-ownership scheme which is authorised for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (c. 8) by an authorisation order in force under section 261D(1) of that Act;

  • "co-ownership scheme”” (“"cynllun cyfberchnogaeth”") has the same meaning as in the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (c. 8) (see section 235A of that Act).

(8)The Welsh Ministers may by regulations provide that a scheme of a description specified in the regulations is to be treated as not being a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme for the purposes of this Act, and TCMA as it applies in relation to land transaction tax.

(9)A co-ownership authorised contractual scheme is not to be treated as a company for the purposes of Schedules 16 (group relief) and 17 (reconstruction relief or acquisition relief).

(10)Anything required or authorised to be done under this Act or TCMA by or in relation to the buyer in a land transaction is to be done by or in relation to the operator of a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme; and accordingly section 33(2) to (6) does not apply in relation to a scheme to which this section applies.

(11)But where the operator of the scheme is a body corporate, section 33(2) to (6) applies in relation to the operator, with the references to a company in those subsections having effect as though they were references to the operator.

(12)In this section—

  • "collective investment scheme”” (“"cynllun buddsoddi torfol”") has the meaning given by section 235 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (c. 8);

  • "operator”” (“"gweithredwr”")—

    (a)

    in relation to a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme constituted under the law of the United Kingdom, has the meaning given by section 237(2) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (c. 8), and

    (b)

    in relation to a collective investment scheme treated as a co-ownership authorised contractual scheme by virtue of subsection (6) (equivalent EEA schemes), means the corporate body responsible for the management of the scheme (however described);

  • "participant”” (“"cyfranogwr”") is to be read in accordance with section 235 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (c. 8).
