Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 17: Meaning of “qualifying company”

2997.This paragraph also supplements paragraph 15, and deals with the meaning of the expression “qualifying company”. The paragraph derives from paragraph 14(1A) and (1B) of Schedule 8, inserted by paragraph 2 of Schedule 13 to FA 2001.

2998.It may not be obvious what is achieved by sub-paragraph (3)(c)(ii), but this provision has a role to play. A qualifying company may fall within paragraph (a) or paragraph (b); or within paragraph (c)(i) as an associated company of a company within paragraph (a) or (b); or within paragraph (c)(ii) as an associated company of an associated company within paragraph (c)(i) (and so on indefinitely).
