Finance Act 1975

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

2(1)Any sum which is to be included in a return made under paragraph 1 above shall be due at the time by which the return is to be made and shall be paid without being demanded.

(2)Where any sum which was or ought to have been included in such a return is not paid by the end of the period for which the return was to be made it may be recovered by an assessment as if it were income tax for the year of assessment in which that period ends; and where it appears to the inspector that a sum which ought to have been so included had not been included or that a return is not correct he may make such an assessment to the best of his judgment.

(3)All the provisions of the Income Tax Acts relating to the assessment and collection of tax, interest on unpaid tax, appeals and penalties shall, with the necessary modifications, apply in relation to sums due under this paragraph ; and for the purposes of those provisions so far as they relate to interest on unpaid tax, a sum assessed in pursuance of this paragraph shall be treated as having been payable when it would have been payable had it been included in a return under paragraph 1 above.

(4)Where, on an appeal against an assessment made in pursuance of this paragraph, it is determined that a greater sum has been assessed than was payable, the excess, if paid, shall be repaid.
