79.—(1) An offshore fund (and investors in that fund) may not rely on a clearance given under regulation 78 if any of conditions A to D is met.
(2) Condition A is that at the beginning of the first period of account of the fund to which the clearance relates (and at the beginning of each subsequent period of account), a relevant statement in the instrument constituting the fund or in its prospectus in issue for the time being is not in accordance with a relevant statement in the documents considered by HMRC before giving clearance.
(3) Condition B is that the fund is operated otherwise than in accordance with condition C of the genuine diversity of ownership condition (see regulations 75 and 76).
(4) Condition C is that the fund acts or is operated in contravention of a relevant statement in the instrument constituting the fund or in its prospectus.
(5) Condition D is that the documents specified in regulation 75(2) are materially amended.
(6) Condition D does not apply if the relevant person specified in regulation 77 has obtained a clearance given under regulation 78 which applies to the documents in their amended form.
(7) For the purposes of condition D, a material amendment is one that may reasonably be construed as causing, or likely to cause, the fund to fail to meet the equivalence condition or the genuine diversity of ownership condition in relation to any period of account.
