Allocation of excess NCDs: procedure

10(1)The basic rule is that the allocation of excess NCDs to another company must be made by the distributing company with the agreement of the recipient company.

(2)If excess NCDs are not so allocated within nine months after—

(a)in a case within paragraph 7, the end of the distribution period, or

(b)in a case within paragraph 9, the relevant time within the meaning of that paragraph,

they may be allocated at any time thereafter by an officer of the Board.

(3)An allocation under sub-paragraph (1) or (2) may be varied—

(a)by agreement between the relevant companies, or

(b)if further excess NCDs are required to be allocated and no variation is agreed within one year after its becoming apparent that a variation is required, by an officer of the Board.

Any such variation may in turn be varied as mentioned in paragraph (a) or (b).

(4)No allocation or variation of an allocation of excess NCDs may be made after the end of the period of one year after whichever of the following last occurs—

(a)the final determination of the tax affairs of the distributing company in relation to the distribution period,

(b)in a case within paragraph 7, the final determination of the tax affairs of all recipient or potential recipient companies in relation to accounting periods that are or could be corresponding accounting periods, or

(c)in a case within paragraph 9, the final determination of the tax affairs of all recipient or potential recipient companies in relation to accounting periods to which an allocation may be made under that paragraph.

(5)If circumstances arise as a result of which the tax affairs of any such company for any such period are reopened, an allocation or variation of an allocation may (and shall if necessary) be made at any time before the end of the period of one year after the tax affairs of the company are again finally determined.

(6)For the purposes of sub-paragraphs (4) and (5) the tax affairs of a company for a period are finally determined when the amounts are conclusively determined within the meaning of paragraph 88 of Schedule 18 to the Finance Act 1998 (c. 36) (company tax returns: conclusiveness of amounts stated in return).

(7)References in this paragraph to variation of an allocation include reducing the amount allocated to nil.
