Payment without deduction

101Payment of royalties without deduction at source

(1)Where—

(a)section 349(1) of the Taxes Act 1988 (certain payments to be made subject to deduction of income tax) applies to a payment of a royalty, but

(b)at the time the payment is made, the company making the payment reasonably believes that section 98 applies to the payment,

the company may, if it thinks fit, make the payment without deduction of tax under section 349(1).

(2)But if section 98 does not in fact apply to the payment, section 350 of, and Schedule 16 to, the Taxes Act 1988 (charge to tax where payments are made under section 349 etc) are to have effect as if subsection (1) never applied in relation to the payment.

(3)If the Board are not satisfied that section 98 will apply to one or more payments of royalties to be made by a company, they may direct the company that subsection (1) is not to apply to the payment or payments.

(4)A direction under subsection (3) may be varied or revoked by a subsequent such direction.

(5)If, before a payment of a royalty is made, the company beneficially entitled to the income in respect of which the payment is to be made—

(a)believed that section 98 would apply to the payment, but

(b)has subsequently become aware that any of Conditions 1 to 3 in section 98 has ceased to be satisfied,

it must without delay notify the Board and the company which is to make the payment.

(6)Paragraph 3(1) of Schedule 18 to the Finance Act 1998 (c. 36) (requirement to make return in respect of information relevant to application of Corporation Tax Acts) has effect as if the reference to the Corporation Tax Acts included a reference to subsections (1) to (4) of this section.

(7)Paragraph 20 of that Schedule (penalties for incorrect returns), in its application to an error relating to information required in a return by virtue of subsection (6), has effect as if—

(a)the reference in sub-paragraph (1) to a tax-related penalty were a reference to an amount not exceeding £3,000, and

(b)sub-paragraphs (2) and (3) were omitted.

102Claim for tax deducted at source from exempt interest or royalty payments

A claim for relief under section 98 in respect of a payment which is made subject to deduction of tax under section 349 of the Taxes Act 1988 shall be made to the Board.
