Certain embedded derivativesU.K.

616Disapplication of fair value accountingU.K.

(1)This section applies if—

(a)a company is treated as a party to a relevant contract under section 584(2)(a) or 586(2) (“the embedded derivative”),

(b)the embedded derivative is a derivative contract which meets the condition in section 579(1)(a) (contract treated for accounting purposes as derivative),

(c)section 592 (embedded derivatives treated as meeting condition in section 591 etc) does not apply in relation to the embedded derivative, and

(d)regulation 9 of the Disregard Regulations (interest rate contracts) does not apply to the embedded derivative.

(2)If this section applies—

(a)sections 573 and 574 (trading credits and debits to be brought into account under Part 3 and non-trading credits and debits to be brought into account under Part 5) do not apply in relation to the embedded derivative, and

(b)subsection (3) or subsections (4) to (6) apply in relation to the original contract, depending on whether that contract is a hybrid derivative or a contract within section 586(1).

(3)If the original contract is a hybrid derivative, profits and losses are to be calculated for the purposes of this Part as if that contract—

(a)were not one where the rights and liabilities are treated for accounting purposes as divided as mentioned in section 584(1) (hybrid derivatives with embedded derivatives), and

(b)were not one in relation to which a fair value basis of accounting is used.

(4)If the original contract is a contract within section 586(1), profits and losses are to be brought into account for the purposes of the Corporation Tax Acts in relation to that contract as if that contract—

(a)were not one where the rights and liabilities are treated for accounting purposes as divided as mentioned in section 586(1) (other contracts with embedded derivatives), and

(b)were not one in relation to which a fair value basis of accounting is used.

(5)Accordingly, this Part does not apply to the original contract (except for the purposes of this section), but section 46 applies to that contract as if fair value accounting were not generally accepted accounting practice in relation to the company.

(6)Subsections (4) and (5) apply despite section 699(1) (priority of this Part for corporation tax purposes).

(7)In this section—

  • the Disregard Regulations” means the Loan Relationships and Derivative Contracts (Disregard and Bringing into Account of Profits and Losses) Regulations 2004 (S.I. 2004/3256), and

  • the original contract” means—

    (a)

    the hybrid derivative as a result of which the company falls to be treated under section 584(2) (hybrid derivatives with embedded derivatives) as a party to the embedded derivative, or

    (b)

    the contract within section 586(1) (other contracts with embedded derivatives) as a result of which the company falls to be treated under section 586(2) as a party to the embedded derivative.

617Election for section 616 not to applyU.K.

(1)A company may elect that section 616 is not to apply in relation to its contracts.

(2)But such an election does not apply to a contract if—

(a)the contract is a contract of long-term insurance, or

(b)the underlying subject matter of the embedded derivative is, or includes, commodities.

(3)An election under this section—

(a)must be made before the end of the first applicable accounting period of the company, and

(b)is irrevocable.

(4)In subsection (3) “the first applicable accounting period” means the first accounting period in which the conditions in section 616(1) are met.

(5)Section 618 makes further provision about elections under this section.

618Elections under section 617: groups of companiesU.K.

(1)If—

(a)a company makes an election under section 617 in relation to its contracts, and

(b)another company, which is a member of the same group as the company making the election, is a party to a contract to which the election applies,

the other company is treated, in relation to that contract, as if it had also made such an election.

(2)If—

(a)a company (“the electing company”) makes an election under section 617 in relation to its contracts,

(b)another company (“the transferee”) becomes a party to a contract to which section 584 (hybrid derivatives with embedded derivatives) or section 586 (other contracts with embedded derivatives) applies, in place of the electing company (whether before or after the election is made), and

(c)the transferee is a member of the same group of companies as the electing company at the time of the transfer,

the transferee is treated, in relation to the contract mentioned in paragraph (b), as if it had also made such an election.

(3)If—

(a)a company (“A”) is treated under section 584 or 586 as a party to a relevant contract in relation to which section 616(1) applies,

(b)another company (“B”) becomes a party to that contract in place of A,

(c)A and B are members of the same group of companies when B becomes a party to the contract, and

(d)section 616(1) does not apply in relation to B's other relevant contracts because of an election under section 617 (whenever made),

subsection (4) applies, unless A, subsequent to B's becoming a party to the contract, makes such an election.

(4)B is treated, in relation to the contract mentioned in subsection (3)(b), as if section 616(1) applied in relation to it.

(5)In this section, references to a company being a member of the same group of companies are to be read in accordance with section 170 of TCGA 1992 (interpretation of sections 171 to 181 of that Act: groups).
