111Computation of income etc subject to special withholding tax only

(1)This section applies where—

(a)a person is chargeable to income tax in respect of a payment of savings income, or

(b)a chargeable gain accrues to a person on a disposal by him of assets in circumstances where the consideration for the disposal consists of or includes an amount of savings income,

and the conditions in subsections (2) and (3) are satisfied.

(2)The first condition is that special withholding tax is levied in respect of—

(a)the payment of savings income, or

(b)the whole or any part of the consideration for the disposal.

(3)The second condition is that no credit for foreign tax in respect of the savings income or the chargeable gain in question falls to be allowed under Chapters 1 and 2 of Part 18 of the Taxes Act 1988 (double taxation relief) (so that section 795(1) and (2) of that Act, which make similar provision to subsections (4) to (6) of this section, do not apply).

(4)If income tax is payable by reference to the amount of the savings income received in the United Kingdom, the amount received is to be treated for the purposes of income tax as increased by the amount of special withholding tax levied in respect of it.

(5)If capital gains tax is payable by reference to the amount of the chargeable gain received in the United Kingdom, the amount received is to be treated for the purposes of capital gains tax as increased by an amount equal to—

Formula - SWT multiplied by (GUK divided by (G minus SWT))

where—

  • SWT is the amount of special withholding tax levied in respect of the whole or the part of the consideration for the disposal,

  • GUK is the amount of the chargeable gain received in the United Kingdom, and

  • G is the amount of the chargeable gain accruing to the person on the disposal.

(6)If neither subsection (4) nor subsection (5) applies, then, in computing—

(a)the amount of the income or gain in question for the purposes of income tax, or

(b)the amount of any chargeable gain for the purposes of capital gains tax,

no deduction is to be made for special withholding tax (whether in respect of the same or any other income or gain or, as the case may be, chargeable gains).

(7)In this section references to special withholding tax are to special withholding tax in respect of which a claim has been made under this Chapter.
