(b)the worker, or an associate of the worker, receives (from any person) a payment or benefit which can reasonably be taken to be in respect of the services, and

(c)the payment or benefit is not earnings (within Chapter 1 of Part 3) received by the worker directly from the MSC.

(2)The MSC is treated as making to the worker, and the worker is treated as receiving, a payment which is to be treated as earnings from an employment (“the deemed employment payment”).

(3)The deemed employment payment is treated as made at the time the payment or benefit mentioned in subsection (1)(b) is received.

(4)In this Chapter—

(5)Section 61F supplements this section.

61ECalculation of deemed employment payment

(1)The amount of the deemed employment payment is the amount resulting from the following steps—

Step 1

Find (applying section 61F) the amount of the payment or benefit mentioned in section 61D(1)(b).

Step 2

Deduct (applying Chapters 1 to 5 of Part 5) the amount of any expenses met by the worker that would have been deductible from the taxable earnings from the employment if—

(a)the worker had been employed by the client to provide the relevant services, and

(b)the expenses had been met by the worker out of those earnings.

If the result at this point is nil or a negative amount, there is no deemed employment payment.

Step 3

Assume that the result of step 2 represents an amount together with employer's national insurance contributions on it, and deduct what (on that assumption) would be the amount of those contributions.

The result is the deemed employment payment.

(2)In step 2 of subsection (1), the reference to expenses met by the worker includes, where the MSC is a partnership and the worker is a member of the partnership, expenses met by the worker for and on behalf of the partnership.

(3)In step 2 of subsection (1), the expenses deductible include the amount of any mileage allowance relief which the worker would have been entitled to in respect of the use of a vehicle falling within subsection (4) if—

(a)the worker had been employed by the client to provide the relevant services, and

(b)the vehicle had not been a company vehicle (within the meaning of Chapter 2 of Part 4).

(4)A vehicle falls within this subsection if—

(a)it is provided by the MSC for the worker, or

(b)where the MSC is a partnership and the worker is a member of the partnership, it is provided by the worker for the purposes of the business of the partnership.

(5)For the purposes of subsection (1) any necessary apportionment of payments or benefits that are referable partly to the provision of the relevant services and partly to other matters is to be made on a just and reasonable basis.

(1)The following provisions apply for the purposes of sections 61D and 61E.

(2)A “payment or benefit” means anything that, if received by an employee for performing the duties of an employment, would be general earnings from the employment.

(3)The amount of a payment or benefit is taken to be—

(a)in the case of a payment or cash benefit, the amount received, and

(b)in the case of a non-cash benefit, the cash equivalent of the benefit.

(4)The cash equivalent of a non-cash benefit is taken to be—

(a)the amount that would be general earnings if the benefit were general earnings from an employment, or

(b)in the case of living accommodation, whichever is the greater of that amount and the cash equivalent determined in accordance with section 398(2).

(5)A payment or benefit is treated as received—

(a)in the case of a payment or cash benefit, when payment is made of or on account of the payment or benefit;

(b)in the case of a non-cash benefit, when it would have been treated as received for the purposes of Chapter 4 or 5 of this Part (see section 19 or 32) if—

(i)the worker had been an employee, and

(ii)the benefit had been provided by reason of the employment.

61GApplication of Income Tax Acts in relation to deemed employment

(1)The Income Tax Acts (in particular, the PAYE provisions) apply in relation to the deemed employment payment as follows.

but this is subject to subsection (3).

(3)No deduction under Part 5 (deductions allowed from employment income) or section 232 (mileage allowance relief) may be made from the deemed employment payment.

(4)The worker is not chargeable to tax in respect of the deemed employment payment if, or to the extent that, by reason of any combination of the factors mentioned in subsection (5), the worker would not be chargeable to tax if—

(a)the worker were employed by the client to perform the relevant services, and

(b)the deemed employment payment were a payment by the client of earnings from that employment.

(5)The factors are—

(a)the worker being resident, ordinarily resident or domiciled outside the United Kingdom,

(b)the client being resident or ordinarily resident outside the United Kingdom, and

(c)the relevant services being provided outside the United Kingdom.

(6)Where the MSC is a partnership and the worker is a member of the partnership, the deemed employment payment is treated as received by the worker in the worker's personal capacity and not as income of the partnership.

(7)Where—

(a)the worker is resident in the United Kingdom, and

(1)This section applies if an individual carries on one or more trades—

(a)as a non-active partner in a firm during a tax year, or

(b)as a limited partner in a firm at a time in that tax year,

and the individual makes a loss in any of those trades (an “affected loss”) in that tax year.

(2)There is a restriction on the amount of sideways relief and capital gains relief which (after applying the restrictions under the other provisions of this Chapter) may be given to the individual for any affected loss (but see subsections (6) and (7)).

(3)The restriction is that the total amount of the sideways relief and capital gains relief given to the individual for all the affected losses must not exceed the cap for that tax year.

(4)The cap for any tax year is £25,000.

(5)The Treasury may by order amend the sum for the time being specified in subsection (4).

(6)The restriction under this section does not apply to so much of any affected loss as derives from qualifying film expenditure (see section 103D).

(7)The restriction under this section does not affect the giving of sideways relief for a loss made in a trade against the profits of that trade.

(8)In this section “trade” does not include a trade which consists of the underwriting business of a member of Lloyd's (within the meaning of section 184 of FA 1993).

(2)The amendment made by sub-paragraph (1) has effect in relation to any loss made by an individual in a trade in the tax year 2007-08 or any subsequent tax year.

(3)But, in the case of a loss made by an individual in a trade in a tax year the basis period for which begins before 2nd March 2007 (a “straddling basis period”), the amount of that loss for the purposes of section 103C of ITA 2007 is—

(a)the amount of sideways relief and capital gains relief which (after applying the restrictions under the other provisions of Chapter 3 of Part 4 of that Act) may be given to the individual for that loss, less

(b)the amount (if any) of the pre-announcement loss.

(4)“The pre-announcement loss” is determined as follows.

(5)Calculate the profits or losses of the straddling basis period, but without regard to capital allowances and qualifying film expenditure (within the meaning of section 103D of ITA 2007).

(6)If that calculation produces a loss and the individual has made a contribution of an amount as capital to the firm or LLP in question—

(a)on or before the start of the straddling basis period, or

(b)after the start of that period but before 2nd March 2007,

apportion the loss produced by that calculation to the part of the straddling basis period which begins with the relevant date and falls before 2nd March 2007 in proportion to the number of days in that part.

(7)Calculate so much of the loss of the straddling basis period as derives from relevant pre-announcement capital expenditure.

(8)The pre-announcement loss is the sum of—

(a)the amount of the loss apportioned under sub-paragraph (6) (if any), and

(b)so much of the loss of the straddling basis period (if any) as derives from relevant pre-announcement capital expenditure.

(9)In sub-paragraph (6) “the relevant date” means—

(a)in any case where a contribution was made on or before the start of the straddling basis period, the start of that period, and

(b)in any other case, the date on which the contribution was made or, if more than one contribution was made, the date on which the first contribution was made.

(10)For the purposes of this paragraph the amount of the loss of the straddling basis period that derives from relevant pre-announcement capital expenditure is determined on a just and reasonable basis.

(11)In this paragraph “relevant pre-announcement capital expenditure” means—

(a)any capital allowance in respect of expenditure paid before 2nd March 2007, and

(b)any capital allowance in respect of expenditure paid on or after that date pursuant to an unconditional obligation in a contract made before that date,

and for this purpose “an unconditional obligation” means an obligation which may not be varied or extinguished by the exercise of any right conferred on the firm or LLP in question (whether or not under the contract).

(12)For the purposes of this paragraph—

(a)an amount of money is not to be taken as contributed as capital to a firm or LLP until the money is paid to the firm or LLP, and

(b)a right or other asset is not to be taken as contributed as capital to a firm or LLP until it is transferred to the firm or LLP.

(13)Section 62 of ITA 2007 (partners: losses of a tax year etc) applies for the purposes of this paragraph as it applies for the purposes of Chapter 3 of Part 4 of that Act.

(b)the individual does not devote a significant amount of time to the trade in the relevant period for that year, and

that amount is to be excluded in calculating the individual's contribution to the LLP for the purposes of section 107 if the contribution was made for a prohibited purpose (but see subsection (4)).

(3)For the purposes of this section a contribution is made for a prohibited purpose if the main purpose, or one of the main purposes, of making the contribution is the obtaining of a reduction in tax liability by means of sideways relief or capital gains relief.

(4)This section has no effect in relation to the application of any restriction under section 104, 107 or 110 to any loss that derives wholly from qualifying film expenditure.
