Child Trust Funds Act 2004

Section 14: Insurance companies and friendly societies

59.This section is required to allow the income and gains made on investments held in CTF accounts provided in the form of life insurance policies by insurance companies and friendly societies to be exempt from corporation tax. But this does not prevent the profits made by the companies on such business from being taxed. Subsection (1) does this by applying the relevant subsections of section 333B of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 as it relates to the Individual Savings Account (ISA) business of insurance companies and friendly societies to their business in providing CTF accounts. ISA and CTF business will be treated for tax purposes as a single category of business with ISA losses being offset against CTF profits and vice versa.
