Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

Part 1 – General

604.Sections 75 and 77 of the Taxes Management Act 1970 have the effect that, where the receiver is appointed by the court, certain taxes payable by the person whose property is under receivership may be recovered instead from the receiver. Whilst both the tax and the confiscation legislation is silent on the subject, there is an argument that these sections apply to receivers and administrators appointed under the confiscation and civil recovery legislation. Schedule 10 provides expressly that these sections do not so apply.
