Meaning of qualifying 75% or 90% subsidiary etc

15(1)In this Schedule a company (“the subsidiary company”) is a qualifying 75% subsidiary of another company (“the parent company”) if—

(a)the subsidiary company is a 75% subsidiary of the parent company within the meaning of section 838 of ICTA (if the subsidiary company has ordinary share capital), or

(b)the parent company has control of the subsidiary company within the meaning of section 840 of ICTA (if the subsidiary company does not have ordinary share capital),

and the parent company is beneficially entitled to the appropriate proportion of profits and assets.

(2)The parent company is beneficially entitled to the appropriate proportion of profits and assets if (and only if) it—

(a)is beneficially entitled to at least 75% of any profits available for distribution to equity holders of the subsidiary company, and

(b)would be beneficially entitled to at least 75% of any assets of the subsidiary company available for distribution to its equity holders on a winding-up.

(3)In this Schedule references to a qualifying 90% subsidiary are to be read in the same way as references to a qualifying 75% subsidiary, but as if the references to 75% were to 90%.

(4)A company (“company A”) cannot be a qualifying 90% subsidiary of another company for the purposes of this Schedule if company A is a qualifying 75% subsidiary of a third company.

(5)Schedule 18 to ICTA (equity holders and profits or assets etc) applies for the purposes of any provision of this Part of this Schedule as it applies for the purposes of any corresponding provision of Chapter 4 of Part 10 of that Act (group relief).

(6)But, in a case where the subsidiary company does not have ordinary share capital, that Schedule applies for those purposes as if the members of that company were equity holders of that company for the purposes of that Schedule.
