Section 335: Charge to tax on rent receivable in connection with a UK section 12(4) concern
1369.This section charges rent receivable in connection with a UK section 12(4) concern to tax. It is based on section 119(1) of ICTA.
1370.The loss regime in section 392 of ICTA applies to income charged under this Chapter and not the regime in sections 379A and 379B of ICTA.
1371.The charge under Schedule D Case III imposed by section 119(2) of ICTA is not rewritten.
1372.Section 119(2) of ICTA provides for the rent to be taxed under Schedule D Case III if the rent is paid in produce of the concern. If section 119(2) of ICTA does not apply the rent is charged under Schedule D Case VI.
1373.When section 119 of ICTA was introduced as section 34 of FA 1934 the lessee was required to deduct income tax when paying rent to the lessor. This was achieved by treating the rent as a royalty paid in respect of the user of a patent. But it would be impractical to deduct income tax if the rent were paid in kind. So what is now section 119(2) of ICTA charged rent paid in kind under Schedule D Case III. This avoided the requirement to deduct income tax because these rents are not a category of income from which tax is deducted.
1374.Since the requirement to deduct income tax from rents taxable under section 119 of ICTA was repealed by FA 1995 a separate charge on rents paid in kind is no longer required.
