This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

28Amendments as to Schedule B

(1)In paragraph 1 of Schedule B (which specifies the lands which are to be charged to tax under Schedule B) for the words from " all lands " to the end of the paragraph there shall be substituted

woodlands in the United Kingdom managed on a commercial basis and with a view to the realisation of profits, so however that this paragraph has effect subject to the right given by section 125 of this Act to elect for assessment under Schedule D; and paragraphs 3 to 5 of Schedule B shall cease to have effect.

(2)Annual value for the purposes of Schedule B shall be determined in accordance with the provisions set out in Schedule 5 to this Act (being provisions corresponding with the provisions enacted for determining gross value for rating purposes), but as if the land, instead of being woodlands, were let and occupied in its natural and unimproved state, so however that where a person is in occupation of land chargeable to tax under Schedule B for part only of the year, or where land in a person's occupation is so chargeable to tax for part only of a year, the value by reference to which he is chargeable under Schedule B shall be the appropriate proportion of the value determined as aforesaid.

(3)Profits or gains arising in any year of assessment from payments for any easement over or right to use any land made to the person who occupies the land shall not be excluded from the charge to tax under Case VIII by reason only that he is chargeable with respect to the land under Schedule B, but shall be treated for purposes of Case VIII as limited to the amount (if any) by which they exceed the assessable value of the land or, as the case may be, by which they exceed such proportion of that value as corresponds to the proportion of the year for which he occupies the land.

(4)Any assessment to tax under Schedule B made after the end of the year 1963-64 as respects land in England or Wales or in Scotland may be made either in any division where the person assessed is engaged in a trade, profession, or vocation or in which he ordinarily resides, or in any division where the land is situated, and an assessment made in pursuance of the provisions of this subsection shall be valid and effectual notwithstanding the subsequent removal of the person assessed from the division in which he is assessed.
