Landfill Disposals Tax (Wales) Act 2017

Section 93 Power to make consequential and transitional etc. provision

171.Section 93 provides that the Welsh Ministers may, by regulations, make such incidental, consequential, supplemental, transitional, transitory or saving provision as they think appropriate for the purpose of, or in connection with, or for giving full effect to, any provision made by or under this Act.

172.Regulations made under section 93 are subject to the negative procedure, provided that the Welsh Ministers are satisfied that the regulations do not make provision that may create or increase a charge to tax. If regulations could result in tax becoming chargeable where that would not otherwise have been the case, or could increase the amount of tax chargeable, the regulations will be subject to the affirmative procedure. This is set out at section 94.

173.Given that regulations can only be made by the negative procedure under section 93 if Welsh Ministers are satisfied that they do not have the potential to affect a person’s liability to tax, this procedure is likely to be used in limited circumstances only: for example, where a consequential amendment needs to be made to the information required on a landfill invoice. Conversely, regulations under section 93 will be made using the affirmative procedure if any provision within those regulations has the potential to create or increase a person’s tax liability, for example, provision that could affect a person’s entitlement to one of the reliefs or exemptions.
