Tax relief certificates

12(1)For the purposes of this Schedule a “tax relief certificate” means a certificate issued by the CDFI in respect of the investment, which is in such form as the Board may specify.

(2)The CDFI must not, in relation to an accreditation period—

(a)if it is accredited for that period as a retail community development finance institution (see paragraph 4(7)), issue tax relief certificates in respect of investments made in the CDFI in that period with an aggregate value exceeding £10 million, and

(b)in any other case, issue tax relief certificates in respect of investments made in the CDFI in that period with an aggregate value exceeding £20 million.

(3)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (2) the value of an investment made in the CDFI is—

(a)if the investment consists of a loan—

(i)the amount of the loan, or

(ii)where the loan agreement authorises the CDFI to draw down amounts of the loan over a period of time, the amount committed under the loan agreement; and

(b)if the investment consists of securities or shares, the amount subscribed for them.

(4)The Treasury may, by order, substitute for any amount for the time being specified in sub-paragraph (2) such other amount as they think fit.

(5)Any such substitution shall have effect in relation to such accreditation periods as may be specified in the order; and those periods may, if the substitution increases the amount for the time being specified in sub-paragraph (2), include periods beginning before the order takes effect.

(6)Any tax relief certificate issued wholly or partly in contravention of sub-paragraph (2) is invalid.

(7)A body is liable to a penalty not exceeding £3000 if it issues a tax relief certificate which is made fraudulently or negligently.
