94ABRules for ascertaining sterling equivalent for section 93(4) or (5)

(1)Where the amount of any receipt or expense, or the value of any asset, liability or derivative contract, of a company falls to be translated into its sterling equivalent for the purposes of section 93(4) or (5) above, the translation shall be made by reference to a rate which is an arm’s length exchange rate for the appropriate day.

(2)For the purposes of subsection (1) above, the “appropriate day” is the day the rate for which would have been used if the accounts, or return of accounts, of the company were translated into sterling in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice in relation to foreign currency translation.

(3)Nothing in this section affects the operation of Chapter 4 of Part 17 of the Taxes Act 1988 (controlled foreign companies).

(4)Nothing in paragraph 88 of Schedule 18 to the Finance Act 1998 (company tax returns, assessments and related matters) shall be taken to prevent an amount being translated under this section for an accounting period by reference to an exchange rate which was not the exchange rate used to translate that amount for the purposes of the Corporation Tax Acts for another accounting period (whether of the same or a different company).

(5)In this section—

  • “accounts” has the same meaning as in section 93 above;

  • “arm’s length exchange rate” has the same meaning as in section 94AA;

  • “derivative contract” shall be construed in accordance with Schedule 26 to the Finance Act 2002..
