This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Degrouping: associated companies leaving group at the same time

59(1)Where two or more associated companies cease to be members of a group at the same time, paragraph 58 does not have effect in relation to a transfer from one to another of those companies.

(2)But where—

(a)a company (“the transferee”) that has ceased to be a member of a group of companies (“the first group”) acquired an asset from another company (“the transferor”) which was a member of that group at the time of the transfer,

(b)sub-paragraph (1) applies in relation to the transferee’s ceasing to be a member of the first group so that paragraph 58 does not have effect,

(c)the transferee subsequently ceases to be a member of another group of companies (“the second group”), and

(d)there is a relevant connection between the two groups (see sub-paragraph (3)),

paragraph 58 has effect in relation to the transferee’s ceasing to be a member of the second group as if it were the second group of which both companies had been members at the time of the transfer.

(3)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (2) there is a relevant connection between the first group and the second group if, at the time when the transferee ceases to be a member of the second group, the company which is the principal company of that group is under the control of—

(a)the company that is the principal company of the first group or, if that group no longer exists, was the principal company of that group when the transferee ceased to be a member of it; or

(b)any person or persons who control the company mentioned in paragraph (a) or who have had it under their control at any time in the period since the transferee ceased to be a member of the first group; or

(c)any person or persons who have, at any time in that period, had under their control either—

(i)a company that would have been a person falling within paragraph (b) if it had continued to exist, or

(ii)a company that would have been a person falling within this paragraph (whether by reference to a company that would have been a person falling within paragraph (b) or by reference to a company or series of companies falling within this provision).

(4)The provisions of section 416(2) to (6) of the Taxes Act 1988 (meaning of control) have effect for the purposes of sub-paragraph (3) as they have effect for the purposes of Part 11 of that Act.

But a person carrying on a business of banking shall not be regarded for those purposes as having control of a company by reason only of having, or of the consequences of having exercised, any rights in respect of loan capital or debt issued or incurred by the company for money lent by that person to the company in the ordinary course of that business.
