Paragraph 110: Certain pre-17th March 1998 policies: application of section 529(1)
3622.This paragraph deals with a similar circumstance to that in paragraph 106 (certain pre-20th March 1985 policies: application of section 529(1)). It is based on section 553(5A) of ICTA.
3623.FA 1998 introduced an exception which limits the availability of the reduction of a gain for periods of non-UK residence on the part of the policy holder (see section 528), where the policy of life assurance or capital redemption policy is held by a foreign institution (see the definition of that term in section 468(5)).
3624.The paragraph reverses the exception made by section 529 if the policy was held by a foreign institution on 16 March 1998 and the policy was issued in respect of an insurance (for a policy of life insurance) or contract (for a capital redemption policy) made on or before that date.
3625.As in paragraph 106 (certain pre-20th March 1985 policies: application of section 529(1)), this paragraph repairs an omission in the source legislation which would exclude a capital redemption policy from the benefit of the paragraph.
