C is the mean of the opening and closing liabilities of all the categories of life assurance business carried on by the company.

(2)In its application to an overseas life insurance company, subsection (1) has effect as if the references to liabilities were only to such liabilities as are attributable to the branch or agency in the United Kingdom through which the company carries on the business concerned.

(b)the management asset in respect of which it is entitled to an allowance or liable to a charge for a chargeable period is provided outside the United Kingdom for use for the management of that business,

(a)section 436 of ICTA (pension business and ISA business),

(b)section 439B of ICTA (life reinsurance business), or
