Section 759: The person making the payment
2873.The first condition in section 758 is that the payer of the interest or royalties is in the United Kingdom, whether as a UK permanent establishment of a company resident in another member State or a company resident in the United Kingdom (other than its permanent establishment outside the United Kingdom). The purpose of this section is to identify the payer (and thus ensure that the payer is in the United Kingdom) where the paying company has a permanent establishment in another territory. The criterion is where the payments are deductible against tax. If they are deductible against the profits of the permanent establishment in the territory where it is situated it is the permanent establishment that is treated as the payer. The section is based on section 99 of FA 2004.
