This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Visiting forces and staff of allied headquarters

6(1)The emoluments paid by the Government of any designated country to a member of a visiting force of that country, not being a citizen of the United Kingdom and colonies, are excluded property.

(2)Any tangible movable property the presence of which in the United Kingdom is due solely to the presence in the United Kingdom of any such member of a visiting force as is referred to in sub-paragraph (1) above while serving as a member of the force is excluded property.

(3)A period during which any such member of a visiting force as is referred to in sub-paragraph (1) above is in the United Kingdom by reason solely of his being such a member shall not be treated for the purposes of tax as a period of residence in the United Kingdom or as creating a change of his residence or domicile.

(4)In the foregoing provisions of this paragraph, references to a visiting force shall apply to a civilian component of a visiting force as they apply to the force itself, and those provisions shall be construed as one with Part I of the Visiting Forces Act 1952, but so that for the purposes of this paragraph references to a designated country shall be substituted in that Act for references to a country to which a provision of that Act applies.

(5)For the purpose of conferring on persons attached to any designated allied headquarters the like benefits as are conferred by sub-paragraphs (1) to (3) above on members of a visiting force or civilian component, any members of the armed forces of a designated country shall, while attached to any such headquarters, be deemed to constitute a visiting force of that country, and there shall be a corresponding extension of the class of persons who may be treated as members of a civilian component of such a visiting force.

(6)In the case of persons of any category for the time being agreed between Her Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom and the other members of the North Atlantic Council, employment by a designated allied headquarters shall be treated for the purposes of sub-paragraphs (2) and (3) above as if it were service as a member of a visiting force of a designated country.

(7)For the purposes of this paragraph—

  • " allied headquarters " means any international military headquarters established under the North Atlantic Council;

  • " designated " means designated for the purpose in question by or under any Order in Council made for giving effect to any international agreement.

(8)Any Order in Council under this paragraph may be varied or revoked by a subsequent Order in Council.

(9)Any Order in Council made under section 73 of the Finance Act 1960 which is in force immediately before the passing of this Act shall have effect for the purposes of this paragraph as if it had also been made under this paragraph, and may be varied or revoked accordingly.
