(2)Sub-paragraph (1) is subject to paragraph 12B (limit on amount of repayment interest carried by certain repayments generated by carry back reliefs).

(3)For the purposes of this paragraph any instalment or part of an instalment that becomes repayable is to be regarded, so far as possible, as consisting of the instalment most recently paid.

12B(1)This paragraph applies where—

(b)otherwise to reduce the tax payable for that period.

(5)The appropriate repayment is to be taken to be the difference between—

(a)the total amount of tax repayable by virtue of the assessment, and
