2(1)A company shall from time to time make to the collector returns of all distributions and payments made by it to which paragraph 1 above applies, and shall in any such return specify any amount of dividends included therein which has been paid under deduction of tax notwithstanding that an election under section 48(3) of this Act was in force in relation thereto.

(2)A return under this paragraph of distributions and payments made in any month shall be made within fourteen days from the end of the month, except that a return for the first five months of the year 1966-67 shall be made within fourteen days of the end of those five months; and any claim under paragraph 3 below shall be made at the like times. In this sub-paragraph " month" means a month of a year of assessment, that is to say, a month beginning with the sixth day of a month of the calendar year.

(3)Subject to sub-paragraph (5) below, income tax in respect of any payment required to be included in a return under this paragraph shall be due at the time by which the return is to be made, and income tax so due shall be payable by the company without the making of any assessment.

(4)Income tax in respect of distributions included in a return, not being payments, shall be assessed on the company; and if it appears to the inspector that there are distributions (of whatever description) which ought to have been and have not been included in a return, or if the inspector is dissatisfied with any return, he may make an assessment on the company to the best of his judgment.

(5)Where a company is liable to pay income tax in respect of any payment if, but only if, it amounts to or involves a distribution, and it is not in the circumstances apparent whether or how far it does so, then—

(a)particulars of the payment shall be included in the return under this paragraph ; but

(b)sub-paragraph (3) above shall not apply to the payment and income tax in respect of it shall be assessed as in the case of distributions other than payments.
