809JSection 809I: order of remittances

(1)If section 809I applies, the following steps are to be taken for the purpose of determining the income or gains treated in a tax year (“the relevant tax year”) as remitted to the United Kingdom by the individual.

  • Step 1

    Find the total amount of—

    (a)

    the individual’s nominated income and gains, and

    (b)

    the individual’s remittance basis income and gains,

    that have been remitted to the United Kingdom in the relevant tax year.

    This amount is “the relevant amount”.

  • Step 2

    Find the amount of foreign income and gains of the individual for the relevant tax year (other than income or chargeable gains nominated under section 809C) that is within each of the categories of income and gains in paragraphs (a) to (h) of subsection (2).

    If none of sections 809B, 809D and 809E apply to the individual for that year, treat those amounts as nil (and accordingly go to step 6).

  • Step 3

    Find the earliest paragraph for which the amount determined under step 2 is not nil.

    If that amount does not exceed the relevant amount, treat the individual as having remitted the income or gains within that paragraph (and for that tax year).

    Otherwise, treat the individual as having remitted the relevant proportion of each kind of income or gains within that paragraph (and for that tax year).

    “The relevant proportion” is the relevant amount divided by the amount determined under step 2 for that paragraph.

  • Step 4

    Reduce the relevant amount by the amount taken into account under step 3.

  • Step 5

    If the relevant amount (as reduced under step 4) is not nil, start again at step 3.

    In step 3, read the reference to the earliest paragraph of the kind mentioned there as a reference to the earliest such paragraph which has not previously been taken into account under that step.

  • Step 6

    If the relevant amount (as reduced) is not nil once steps 3 to 5 have been undertaken in relation to all paragraphs of subsection (2) for which the amount determined under step 2 is not nil, start again at step 2.

    In step 2, read the reference to the foreign income and gains of the individual for the relevant tax year as a reference to such of the foreign income and gains of the individual for the appropriate tax year as had not been remitted by the beginning of the relevant tax year.

    “The appropriate tax year” is the latest tax year which is—

    (a)

    before the last tax year for which step 2 has been undertaken, and

    (b)

    a tax year for which section 809B, 809D or 809E applies to the individual.

(2)The kinds of income and gains are—

(a)relevant foreign earnings (other than those subject to a foreign tax),

(b)foreign specific employment income (other than income subject to a foreign tax),

(c)relevant foreign income (other than income subject to a foreign tax),

(d)foreign chargeable gains (other than gains subject to a foreign tax),

(e)relevant foreign earnings subject to a foreign tax,

(f)foreign specific employment income subject to a foreign tax,

(g)relevant foreign income subject to a foreign tax, and

(h)foreign chargeable gains subject to a foreign tax.

(3)In this section the individual’s “nominated income and gains” are the total income and chargeable gains nominated by the individual under section 809C for the relevant tax year or any earlier tax year.

(4)In step 1 of subsection (1) the individual’s “remittance basis income and gains” are the foreign income and gains of the individual for all the tax years (up to and including the relevant tax year) for which section 809B, 809D or 809E applies to the individual, apart from the individual’s nominated income and gains.

(5)In step 6 of subsection (1) the reference to income or gains being remitted is—

(a)as respects any tax year before section 809I applies, to income or gains being remitted to the United Kingdom, and

(b)as respects any tax year in relation to which that section applies, to income or gains treated under this section as so remitted.

(6)In subsection (2) “foreign tax” means any tax chargeable under the law of a territory outside the United Kingdom.

(b)if full consideration in money or money’s worth is given by a relevant person for the enjoyment, or

Remittance of income and gains: transfers from mixed funds
809QSections 809L and 809P: transfers from mixed funds

(1)This section applies for the purposes mentioned in subsection (2) where condition A in section 809L is met and—

(a)the property or consideration for the service is (wholly or in part), or derives (wholly or in part, and directly or indirectly) from, a transfer from a mixed fund, or

(b)a transfer from a mixed fund, or anything deriving (wholly or in part, and directly or indirectly) from such a transfer, is used as mentioned in section 809L(3)(c).

(2)The purposes referred to in subsection (1) are—

(a)determining whether condition B in section 809L is met, and

(b)if it is met, determining (under section 809P) the amount of income or chargeable gains remitted.

(3)The extent to which the transfer is of the individual’s income or chargeable gains is to be determined as follows.

  • Step 1

    For each of the categories of income and capital in paragraphs (a) to (i) of subsection (4), find (applying section 809R) the amount of income or capital of the individual for the relevant tax year in the mixed fund immediately before the transfer.

    “The relevant tax year” is the tax year in which the transfer occurs.

  • Step 2

    Find the earliest paragraph for which the amount determined under step 1 is not nil.

    If that amount does not exceed the amount of the transfer, treat the transfer as containing the income or capital within that paragraph (and for that tax year).

    Otherwise, treat the transfer as containing the relevant proportion of each kind of income or capital within that paragraph (and for that tax year).

    “The relevant proportion” is the amount of the transfer divided by the amount determined under step 1 for that paragraph.

  • Step 3

    Treat the amount of the transfer as reduced by the amount taken into account under step 2.

  • Step 4

    If the amount of the transfer (as reduced under step 3) is not nil, start again at step 2.

    In step 2, read the reference to the earliest paragraph of the kind mentioned there as a reference to the earliest such paragraph which has not previously been taken into account under that step in relation to the transfer.

  • Step 5

    If the amount of the transfer (as reduced under step 3) is not nil once steps 2 and 3 have been undertaken in relation to all paragraphs of subsection (4) for which the amount determined under step 1 is not nil, start again at step 1.

    In step 1, read the reference to the relevant tax year as a reference to the tax year immediately before the last tax year for which step 1 has been undertaken in relation to the transfer.

(4)The kinds of income and capital are—

(a)employment income (other than income within paragraph (b), (c) or (f)),

(b)relevant foreign earnings (other than income within paragraph (f)),

(c)foreign specific employment income (other than income within paragraph (f)),

(d)relevant foreign income (other than income within paragraph (g)),

(e)foreign chargeable gains (other than chargeable gains within paragraph (h)),

(f)employment income subject to a foreign tax,

(g)relevant foreign income subject to a foreign tax,

(h)foreign chargeable gains subject to a foreign tax, and

(i)income or capital not within another paragraph of this subsection.

(5)In subsection (4) “foreign tax” means any tax chargeable under the law of a territory outside the United Kingdom.

(6)In this section “mixed fund” means money or other property which, immediately before the transfer, contains or derives from—

(a)more than one of the kinds of income and capital mentioned in subsection (4), or

(b)income or capital for more than one tax year.

(7)References in this section to the amount of the transfer include the market value of it.

(8)References in this section and section 809R to anything deriving from income or capital within paragraph (i) of subsection (4) do not include—

(a)income or gains within any of paragraphs (a) to (h) of that subsection, or

    those chargeable gains are to be ordered according to the day on which they accrued,

    (b)

    the losses are to be deducted from those gains in reverse chronological order (starting with the last chargeable gain to accrue), and

    (c)

    if allowable losses are deductible from chargeable gains that accrued on a particular day but are not enough to exhaust all of the chargeable gains that accrued on that day, the amount deducted from each of those chargeable gains is the appropriate proportion of the losses.

    In paragraph (c) “the appropriate proportion”, in relation to a chargeable gain, is the amount of that gain divided by the total amount of the chargeable gains that accrued on the day in question.

  • Step 2

    Treat the amount referred to in section 2(2) or (4)(a) or 16ZB(3)(a) as being equal to—

    (a)

    the amount it would be if there were no relevant allowable losses, minus

    (b)

(3)The chargeable gains are—

(a)foreign chargeable gains accruing to the individual in the tax year, to the extent that they are remitted to the United Kingdom in that year,

(b)foreign chargeable gains accruing to the individual in that year, to the extent that they are not so remitted in that year, and

(c)chargeable gains accruing to the individual in that year (other than foreign chargeable gains).

(4)Chargeable gains treated as accruing under section 87 or 89(2) (read, where appropriate, with section 10A) are not within any paragraph of subsection (3).

(5)Chargeable gains treated as accruing under section 12 are not within subsection (3)(c).

(6)For the purposes of subsection (3) foreign chargeable gains are remitted to the United Kingdom if they are regarded as so remitted for the purposes of section 12.

(7)In this section—

  • “relevant allowable losses” means the allowable losses that section 2(2) provides may be deducted from chargeable gains accruing to the individual in the tax year, and

  • “foreign chargeable gains” has the meaning given by section 12(4).

16ZDSection 16ZC: supplementary

(1)This section applies if section 16ZC applies to an individual for a tax year.

(2)Any allowable loss deducted under step 1 of section 16ZC(2) is to be regarded (for the purposes of section 2(2)(b)) as allowed as a deduction from chargeable gains accruing to the individual in the tax year.

(b)has not been remitted to the United Kingdom by the end of the tax year in which the disposal mentioned in section 119A(1) occurs.

(3)The following provisions apply if any of the unremitted foreign securities income is remitted to the United Kingdom after the end of the tax year referred to in subsection (2)(b).

(b)was not domiciled in the United Kingdom, or was not ordinarily UK resident, in that year.

(2)Section 22 or 26 of ITEPA 2003 (as amended by this Part of this Schedule) applies in relation to the general earnings as if—

(3)In relation to the general earnings, the definition of “foreign employer” in section 721(1) of ITEPA 2003 has effect as if at the end there were inserted “and not resident in the Republic of Ireland”.

83(1)This paragraph applies to an individual’s relevant foreign income for the tax year 2007-08 or any earlier tax year (“the relevant tax year”) if—

(2)Section 12 of TCGA 1992 (as amended by this Part of this Schedule) applies in relation to that gain as if section 809B of ITA 2007 (claim for remittance basis to apply) applied to the individual for the relevant tax year.

(4)Subject to sub-paragraphs (2) and (3), in relation to an individual’s income and chargeable gains for the tax year 2007-08 or any earlier tax year, section 809L has effect as if the references to a relevant person were to the individual.

(c)before 6 April 2008—

(i)the money was received in the United Kingdom,

(ii)the individual used the money to acquire an interest in residential property in the United Kingdom (“the interest”), and

(iii)repayment of the debt for the money (“the debt”), or of payments made under a guarantee of that repayment (“the guarantee”), was secured on the interest.

(2)Relevant foreign income of the individual used outside the United Kingdom before 6 April 2028 to pay interest on the debt is treated as not remitted to the United Kingdom.

(3)If, at any time on or after 12 March 2008—

(b)repayment of the debt, or of payments made under the guarantee, ceases to be secured on the interest,

(i)the individual used the money to repay the loan referred to in paragraph (b)(i) or (ii), and

(ii)repayment of the subsequent loan, or of payments made under a guarantee of that repayment, was secured on the interest,

sub-paragraphs (2) and (3) apply in relation to the subsequent loan (and for this purpose references there to the debt or the loan are to be read as references to the subsequent loan).

(5)In this paragraph “residential property” has the same meaning as in Part 4 of FA 2003 (see section 116 of that Act).

(6)In this paragraph “guarantee” includes an indemnity, and “guaranteed” is to be read accordingly.

(a)the date of the acquisition is on or after 6 April 2008 and on or before 31 July 2008, and

(b)Chapter 2 of Part 7 of ITEPA 2003 (restricted securities) applies in relation to the securities by virtue only of amendments made by this Schedule.
