Exchange gains and losses where derivative contracts not on arm’s length terms

27(1)Sub-paragraph (2) applies where—

(a)a company is party to a derivative contract in an accounting period,

(b)as regards the derivative contract, an exchange gain or exchange loss arises to the company for the accounting period in question, and

(c)the profits and losses of the company fall by virtue of Schedule 28AA to the Taxes Act 1988 (provision not at arm’s length) to be computed for tax purposes as if the company were not party to the derivative contract.

(2)Where this sub-paragraph applies, any exchange gains and losses which arise to the company from the derivative contract for the accounting period in question shall be left out of account in determining the credits and debits which are, in the case of the company, to be brought into account for the purposes of this Schedule.

(3)Sub-paragraph (4) applies where—

(a)a company is party to a derivative contract in an accounting period,

(b)as regards the derivative contract, an exchange gain or exchange loss arises to the company for the accounting period in question, and

(c)the profits and losses of the company fall by virtue of Schedule 28AA to the Taxes Act 1988 to be computed for tax purposes as if the terms of the derivative contract were those that would have been agreed by the company and the other party to the derivative contract had they been dealing at arm’s length.

(4)Where this sub-paragraph applies, the credits and debits which are, in the case of the company, to be brought into account for the purposes of this Schedule shall be determined on the assumption that, in the accounting period in question, the amount of any exchange gain or loss arising to the company from the derivative contract is the adjusted amount.

(5)In sub-paragraph (4) the “adjusted amount” is the amount of an exchange gain or loss (including an exchange gain of nil) which would have arisen from the derivative contract if the terms of the contract were those that would have been agreed by the company and the other party to the derivative contract had they been dealing at arm’s length.
