1 Charge to windfall tax.E+W+S+N.I.

(1)Every company which, on 2nd July 1997, was benefitting from a windfall from the flotation of an undertaking whose privatisation involved the imposition of economic regulation shall be charged with a tax (to be known as the “windfall tax”) on the amount of that windfall.

(b)there had, before that flotation, been a statutory transfer of property, rights and liabilities from a public corporation to the floated company or to a company which, at the time of the flotation, was a subsidiary undertaking of the floated company; and

(c)at the time of the flotation, the floated company was carrying on an undertaking whose privatisation involved the imposition of economic regulation.

(2)For the purposes of this Part a company was privatised by means of a flotation if—

(a)an offer of shares in that company was at any time made to the public in the United Kingdom;

(b)the shares which were the subject-matter of the offer were publicly-owned at the time of the offer;

(c)the offer was or included an offer of shares for disposal at a fixed price; and

(4)For the purposes of this Part a company in existence on 2nd July 1997 (“the relevant company”) was on that date a demerged successor of a company privatised by means of a flotation if—

(a)after the flotation of the floated company but before 2nd July 1997, there had been a statutory transfer of property, rights and liabilities from the floated company to a company (“the transferee company”) which was a subsidiary undertaking of the floated company at the time of the transfer;

(b)the transferee company was not a subsidiary undertaking of the floated company on 2nd July 1997 but was, on that date, a subsidiary undertaking of the relevant company; and

(c)before 2nd July 1997 shares in the relevant company had been admitted to listing on the Official List of the Stock Exchange in pursuance of an application made in connection with the transaction, or series of transactions, by virtue of which the transferee company ceased to be a subsidiary undertaking of the floated company.

(5)For the purposes of this section a company was, at the time of its flotation, carrying on an undertaking whose privatisation involved the imposition of economic regulation if that company, or a company which at that time was a subsidiary undertaking of that company, was at that time—

(1)Subject to subsection (4) below, section 42 of the M35Finance (No. 2) Act 1992 shall have effect in relation to any expenditure to which this section applies as if the following subsection were substituted for subsections (4) and (5) (which for any period limit relief for film production and acquisition expenditure to a third, or a proportionately reduced fraction, of the relievable expenditure)—

(3)This section does not apply to so much of any expenditure falling within section 42(3) of the M36Finance (No. 2) Act 1992 (acquisition expenditure) as exceeds the amount of the total production expenditure on the film concerned.

(4)Where this section applies to only part of any expenditure to which subsection (2) or (3) of section 42 of the M37Finance (No. 2) Act 1992 applies in the case of any film, the amount deducted by virtue of subsection (1) of that section for a relevant period shall not exceed the sum of the following amounts—

(b)that part of that expenditure might have been expected to have been of a greater amount (“the arm’s length amount”) if the transaction had been between independent persons dealing at arm’s length,

that part of that expenditure shall be deemed, for the purpose of determining the amount of the total production expenditure on the film, to have been expenditure of an amount equal to the arm’s length amount.

(8)Subsection (3) of section 43 of the Finance (No. 2) Act 1992 (time of completion of a film) shall apply for the purposes of this section as it applies for the purposes of sections 41 and 42 of that Act, but with the omission of paragraph (b) (completion on incurring acquisition expenditure) and the word “or” immediately preceding it.

The basic ruleE+W+S+N.I.

1(1)Subject to paragraph 7 below, where a company was benefitting on 2nd July 1997 from a windfall from the flotation of an undertaking whose privatisation involved the imposition of economic regulation, the amount of that windfall shall be taken for the purposes of this Part to be the excess (if any) of the amount specified in sub-paragraph (2)(a) below over the amount specified in sub-paragraph (2)(b) below.E+W+S+N.I.

(2)Those amounts are the following amounts (determined in accordance with paragraphs 2 to 6 below), that is to say—

(a)the value in profit-making terms of the disposal made on the occasion of the company’s flotation; and

(b)the value which for privatisation purposes was put on that disposal.

Value of a disposal in profit-making termsE+W+S+N.I.

2(1)Subject to paragraph 4 below, the value in profit-making terms of the disposal made on the occasion of a company’s flotation is the amount produced by multiplying the average annual profit for the company’s initial period by the applicable price-to-earnings ratio.E+W+S+N.I.

(2)For the purposes of this paragraph the average annual profit for a company’s initial period is the amount produced by the following formula—

Where—

A is the average annual profit for the company’s initial period;

P is the amount, ascertained in accordance with paragraph 5 below, of the total profits for the company’s initial period; and

D is the number of days in the company’s initial period.

(3)For the purposes of this paragraph the applicable price-to-earnings ratio is 9.

Value put on a disposal for privatisation purposesE+W+S+N.I.

3(1)Subject to paragraph 4 below, the value which for privatisation purposes was put on the disposal made on the occasion of a company’s flotation is the amount produced by multiplying the institutional price by the number of shares comprised in the ordinary share capital of the company at the time of its flotation.E+W+S+N.I.

(2)In this paragraph “the institutional price”, in relation to a company, means the highest fixed price per share at which publicly-owned shares in the company were offered for disposal on the occasion of the company’s flotation.

(3)Subject to sub-paragraph (4) below, where publicly-owned shares in a company were offered for disposal in accordance with any arrangements for the payment of the price in two or more instalments, the price per share at which those shares were offered shall be ascertained by aggregating the instalments.

(4)Where the arrangements under which any publicly-owned shares in a company were offered for disposal provided for any discount on the payment of the whole or any part of the price for those shares, that discount shall be disregarded for the purposes of this paragraph in determining the price per share at which those shares were offered.

Cases where company privatised in stagesE+W+S+N.I.

4(1)For the purposes of this Schedule, where the disposal percentage in the case of any company was 85 per cent. or less—E+W+S+N.I.

(a)the value in profit-making terms of the disposal made on the occasion of the company’s flotation, and

(b)the value which for privatisation purposes was put on that disposal,

shall each be taken to be the disposal percentage of the amount which, under paragraph 2 or 3 above, would be the amount of that value but for this paragraph.

(2)For the purposes of this paragraph “the disposal percentage”, in relation to any company, means the percentage which expresses (in terms of nominal value) how much of the ordinary share capital of the company at the time of its flotation was represented by the publicly-owned shares in the company offered for disposal on the occasion of the company’s flotation.

Total profits for the initial periodE+W+S+N.I.

5(1)For the purposes of paragraph 2 above the amount of the total profits for a company’s initial period is the sum of the amounts falling within sub-paragraph (2) below.E+W+S+N.I.

(2)Subject to sub-paragraph (3) and paragraph 6(3) below, those amounts are every amount which, for a financial year of the company ending in or at the end of its initial period, is shown in the relevant accounts for that year—

(a)where those accounts are prepared in accordance with section 227 of the M46Companies Act 1985 (group accounts), as the profit of that company and its subsidiary undertakings for that year; and

(b)in any other case, as the profit of that company for that year.

(3)Where—

(a)any profit shown in the relevant accounts of a company for any financial year has been computed using a current cost accounting method, but

(b)the information which was contained in those accounts, or which was provided to the registrar together with those accounts, included information from which it can be ascertained what that profit would have been if an historical cost accounting method had been used,

the amount shown as that profit in those accounts shall be deemed to be the amount (as ascertained from that information) which would have been so shown if that historical cost accounting method had been used.

(4)In this paragraph references, in relation to any financial year of a company, to the relevant accounts are references to any such accounts for that year as have been or are delivered to the registrar under section 242 of the Companies Act 1985 and consist—

(5)Subject to sub-paragraph (6) below, references in this paragraph to the amount shown in any accounts as the profit for any financial year are references to the amount of the profit (if any) for that year which is set out in the profit and loss account comprised in those accounts as the item which is, or is the equivalent of, the final item of the statutory format which for that year was used for that profit and loss account.

(6)Where any amount shown in any accounts is less than it would have been if no provision or other deduction had been made—

(a)in relation to the windfall tax, or

(b)in anticipation of the imposition of a charge with characteristics similar to those of the windfall tax,

this Schedule shall have effect as if the amount shown were the amount it would have been if that provision or deduction had not been made.

(7)Nothing in this paragraph shall, in the case of any company—

(a)prevent any charge to windfall tax from being treated as having arisen on 2nd July 1997 by reference to accounts delivered to the registrar after that date; or

(b)prevent any requirement to pay an instalment of windfall tax, or any other liability under Schedule 2 to this Act, from arising before the delivery to the registrar of the accounts by reference to which the amount of that charge is computed;

and any power of the Board under that Schedule to make an assessment shall include power to make an assessment on the basis that accounts will be delivered to the registrar showing such amounts as may, to the best of their judgement, be determined by the Board.

(8)Subject to sub-paragraph (9) below, this paragraph shall have effect in relation to any time at which the M47Companies Act 1985 had effect without the amendments made by the M48Companies Act 1989—

(2)Where the initial period of a company privatised by means of a flotation would (but for this sub-paragraph) include any time on or after 1st April 1997, sub-paragraph (1) above shall not apply and the initial period of that company shall be taken, instead, to be the period which—

(3)Where—

IntroductoryE+W+S+N.I.

1Chapter IV of Part X of the Taxes Act 1988 (group relief) shall be amended in accordance with paragraphs 2 to 7 below.E+W+S+N.I.

New limitsE+W+S+N.I.

2The following sections shall be inserted after section 403—E+W+S+N.I.

403A Limits on group relief.

(1)The amount which, on a claim for group relief, may be set off against the total profits of the claimant company for an accounting period (“the claim period”), and accordingly the amount to which any consent required in respect of that claim may relate, shall not exceed whichever is the smaller of the following amounts—

(a)the unused part of the surrenderable amount for the overlapping period; and

(b)the unrelieved part of the claimant company’s total profits for the overlapping period.

(2)For the purposes of any claim for group relief—

(a)the unused part of the surrenderable amount for the overlapping period is the surrenderable amount for that period reduced by the amount of any prior surrenders attributable to the overlapping period; and

(b)the unrelieved part of the claimant company’s total profits for the overlapping period is the amount of its total profits for that period reduced by the amount of any previously claimed group relief attributable to the overlapping period.

(3)For the purposes of any claim for group relief—

(a)the surrenderable amount for the overlapping period is so much of the surrenderable amount for the accounting period of the surrendering company to which the claim relates as is attributable, on an apportionment in accordance with section 403B, to the overlapping period;

(b)the surrenderable amount for an accounting period of the surrendering company is the total amount for that accounting period of the losses and other amounts which (disregarding this section and section 403C) are available in that company’s case for set off by way of group relief; and

(c)the amount of the claimant company’s total profits for the overlapping period is so much of its total profits for the claim period as is attributable, on an apportionment in accordance with section 403B, to the overlapping period.

(4)In relation to any claim for group relief (“the relevant claim”) the amount of the prior surrenders attributable to the period which is the overlapping period in the case of the relevant claim is equal to the aggregate amount (if any) produced by—

(a)taking the amount of every claim for group relief (whether a group claim or a consortium claim) which—

(i)has been made before the relevant claim,

(ii)was made in respect of the whole or any part of the amount which, in relation to the relevant claim, is the surrenderable amount for the accounting period of the surrendering company to which the claim relates, and

(iii)has not been withdrawn;

(b)treating the amount of group relief which (having regard to the provisions of this section) is allowable under each such claim as an amount of relief for the period which is the overlapping period in the case of that claim;

(c)determining how much of each amount treated in accordance with paragraph (b) above as an amount of relief for a particular period is attributable, on an apportionment in accordance with section 403B, to the period (if any) which is common to both—

(i)that period; and

(ii)the period which is the overlapping period in the case of the relevant claim;

and

(d)aggregating all the amounts determined under paragraph (c) above in respect of the previously made claims.

(5)In relation to any claim for group relief (“the relevant claim”), the amount of previously claimed group relief attributable to the period which is the overlapping period in the case of that claim is the aggregate amount produced by—

(a)taking the amount of every claim for group relief (whether a group claim or a consortium claim) which—

(i)has been made before the relevant claim,

(ii)was a claim to set off an amount by way of group relief against the claimant company’s total profits for the period which, in relation to the relevant claim, is the claim period, and

(iii)has not been withdrawn;

(b)treating the amount of group relief which (having regard to the provisions of this section) is allowable under each such claim as an amount of relief for the period which is the overlapping period in the case of that claim;

(c)determining how much of each amount treated in accordance with paragraph (b) above as an amount of relief for a particular period is attributable, on an apportionment in accordance with section 403B, to the period (if any) which is common to both—

(i)that period; and

(ii)the period which is the overlapping period in the case of the relevant claim;

and

(d)aggregating all the amounts determined under paragraph (c) above in respect of the previously made claims.

(6)For the purposes of this section the amount of group relief allowable on any claim (“the finalised claim”) shall fall to be determined as at the time when that claim ceases to be capable of being withdrawn as if—

(a)every claim that became incapable of being withdrawn before that time were a claim made before the finalised claim; and

(b)every claim that remains capable of being withdrawn at that time were a claim made after the finalised claim.

(7)Subject to subsection (6) above and without prejudice to any power to withdraw and resubmit claims, where (but for this subsection) more than one claim for group relief would be taken for the purposes of subsections (4) and (5) above to have been made at the same time, those claims shall be deemed, instead, to have been made—

(a)in such order as the company or companies making them may, by notice to any officer of the Board, elect or, as the case may be, jointly elect; and

(b)if there is no such election, in such order as an officer of the Board may direct.

(8)In this section “the overlapping period”, in relation to a claim for group relief, means (subject to subsection (9) below and section 406(3) and (7)) the period which is common to both—

(a)the claim period; and

(b)the accounting period of the surrendering company to which the claim relates.

(9)For the purposes of this section any time in the period which, in relation to any claim for group relief, is common to both the accounting periods mentioned in subsection (8) above but which is a time when the qualifying conditions were not satisfied—

(a)shall be treated as not comprised in the period which is the overlapping period in the case of that claim; and

(b)shall be treated instead, in relation to each of those accounting periods, as if it constituted a part of that accounting period which was not common to both periods.

(10)For the purposes of subsection (9) above the qualifying conditions are satisfied in relation to any claim for group relief at the following times, that is to say—

(a)if the claim is a group claim, whenever the claimant company and the surrendering company are both members of the same group; and

(b)if the claim is a consortium claim, whenever the conditions specified in section 402(3) for the making of that claim are satisfied in the case of the claimant company and the surrendering company.

403B Apportionments under section 403A.

(1)Subject to subsection (2) below, where an apportionment falls to be made under section 403A for the purpose of determining how much of an amount for any period (“the first period”) is attributable to any other period (“the second period”) which comprises the whole or a part of the first period—

(a)the whole of that amount shall be attributed to the second period if the first and second periods begin and end at the same times; and

(b)in any other case, the apportionment shall be made on a time basis according to how much of the first period coincides with the second period.

(2)Where the circumstances of a particular case are such that the making on the time basis mentioned in subsection (1)(b) above of some or all of the apportionments to be made in that case would work in a manner that would be unjust or unreasonable in relation to any person, those apportionments shall be made instead (to the extent only that is necessary in order to avoid injustice and unreasonableness) in such other manner as may be just and reasonable.

403C Special rules for consortium cases.

(1)Where—

(a)in the case of a consortium claim, the surrendering company is a member of the consortium, and

(b)the amount produced by multiplying the surrenderable amount for the overlapping period by the relevant fraction is less than the smaller of the amounts given by subsection (1)(a) and (b) of section 403A,

the amount which, on that claim, may be set off against the total profits of the claimant company for the claim period shall not exceed the amount produced by that multiplication.

(2)Where—

(a)in the case of a consortium claim, the claimant company is a member of the consortium, and

(b)the amount produced by multiplying the claimant company’s total profits for the overlapping period by the relevant fraction is less than the smaller of the amounts given by subsection (1)(a) and (b) of section 403A,

the amount which, on that claim, may be set off against the total profits of the claimant company for the claim period shall not exceed the amount produced by that multiplication.

(3)For the purposes of this section the relevant fraction is the fraction equivalent to—

(a)in a case falling within subsection (1) above, the surrendering company’s member’s share in the consortium in the accounting period of that company which is or includes the overlapping period; and

(b)in a case falling within subsection (2) above, the claimant company’s member’s share in the consortium in the accounting period of that company which is or includes the overlapping period.

(4)Expressions used in this section and in section 403A have the same meanings in this section as in that section.
