(2)Where the Board are not so satisfied in relation to a participator’s return or a participator fails to deliver to the Board a return for a chargeable period as required by paragraph 2 above, the Board shall, in so far as the computation of his assessable profit or allowable loss (if any) for that period falls to be made by reference to the matters which were dealt with in the return or, as the case may be, ought to have been dealt with in a return, make the assessment or determination under paragraph 10 above to the best of their judgment.

(3)Nothing in sub-paragraph (2) above or in paragraph 5 above shall be taken, in a case where the participator has delivered a return as to which the Board are not satisfied as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) above, to prevent the Board from basing their assessment or determination on the participator’s having had an interest in oil won and saved from the field different from that on which he based his return.

(2)Where under sub-paragraph (1) above it appears to the Board that the assessable profit for a chargeable period ought to have been larger and that the deficiency resulted from an excessive allowable loss accruing in a subsequent period having been set against the profit for that period, the Board may (notwithstanding anything in section 34 of the M4Taxes Management Act 1970 (ordinary time limit for assessments)) make a further assessment by virtue of sub-paragraph (1) above at any time not later than six years after the end of the chargeable period in which the allowable loss accrued.

(2)The notice of appeal shall specify the grounds of appeal, but on the hearing of the appeal the Commissioners may allow the appellant to put forward any ground not specified in the notice, and may take it into consideration if satisfied that the omission was not wilful or unreasonable.

(3)A participator who has given notice of appeal under sub-paragraph (1) above against an assessment charging him with any tax for a chargeable period may, if he delivered a return for that period as required by paragraph 2 above, withhold, until the determination or abandonment of the appeal, so much of the tax charged in the assessment as is the smaller of—

(a)the amount of the tax so charged; and

(b)tax on the difference between—

(i)the aggregate of the consideration received or receivable for oil as stated in the participator’s return in pursuance of sub-paragraph (2) of that paragraph and, subject to sub-paragraph (4) below, the market value of oil as so stated; and

(ii)the aggregate of the corresponding consideration and value as included in the assessment.

(4)Subject to sub-paragraph (5) below, where the market value of all the oil for which a market value is stated in the participator’s return is, as stated in that return, less than the value which is produced for that oil by applying to it the average price mentioned in sub-paragraph (6) below, sub-paragraph (3) above shall have effect as if, for the reference to the market value of oil as so stated, there were substituted a reference to the value which is so produced for that oil.

(5)The comparison of values and the substitution required by sub-paragraph (4) above shall, in the case of an appeal by a participator whose return relates both to gas and to other oil, be made separately for the gas and for the other oil.

(a)were made for the chargeable period preceding that to which the appeal relates; and

(b)were delivered before the end of the chargeable period to which the appeal relates.

(8)The participator may at any time, if the Board do not object to his doing so, abandon an appeal instituted by him; and for this purpose he shall notify his desire to do so to the Board who may, within thirty days after being so notified, object by notice in writing to the participator.

(9)Where, at any time between—

(a)the giving of a notice of appeal against the assessment [F39determination or amendment] or from a decision of the Board on a claim under section 33 of the M5Taxes Management Act 1970 as applied by paragraph 1 above, and

(b)the determination of the appeal by the Special Commissioners,

the Board and the participator agree [F39on how the assessment, determination, amendment or decision should be varied or on what assessment or determination should be substituted in relation to the chargeable period in question, the same consequences shall ensue as if the Commissioners had determined the appeal to that effect].

[F40(10)If, on the appeal, it appears to a majority of the Commissioners present at the hearing that the assessment, determination or amendment is wrong—

(a)because no, or a smaller, assessable profit or a, or a larger, allowable loss has accrued for the chargeable period in question; or

(b)because a, or a larger, assessable profit or no, or a smaller, allowable loss has accrued for that period,

the Commissioners shall vary the assessment, determination or amendment in such manner, or substitute such assessment or determination, as may be required; and it shall be for the participator to satisfy the Commissioners as to any matter within paragraph (a) above.]

(a)an assessment made on a participator for a chargeable period or an amendment of such an assessment (in this paragraph referred to as “the relevant assessment or amendment”) gives effect to relief under subsection (2) of subsection (3) of section 7 of this Act for one or more allowable losses accruing in a later chargeable period (in this paragraph referred to, in relation to the relevant assessment or amendment, as “the relief for losses carried back”); and

(b)the later chargeable period referred to in paragraph (a) above ends after 30th June 1991; and

(c)an amount of tax becomes repayable to the participator by virtue of the relevant assessment or amendment (whether wholly or partly by reason of giving effect to the relief for losses carried back).

(2)In the following provisions of this paragraph, so much of the repayment of tax referred to in sub-paragraph (1)(c) above as is attributable to giving effect to the relief for losses carried back is referred to as “the appropriate repayment[F50 and, in relation to the appropriate repayment, the chargeable period for which the relevant assessment or amendment is made is referred to as “the repayment period].

(a)the total amount of tax repayable by virtue of the relevant assessment or amendment; and

(b)the amount of tax (if any) which would have been so repayable if no account had been taken of the relief for losses carried back.

(4)[F51Subject to sub-paragraph (6) below]Where this paragraph applies, the amount of interest which, by virtue of paragraph 16 above [F52which is treated as reducing the assessable profit of the repayment period], is carried by the appropriate repayment shall not exceed the difference between—
