Section 571: Termination by notice: group or company
1795.This section provides that the principal company of a group UK REIT or a company UK REIT may give notice to an officer of Revenue and Customs for the UK REIT regime to cease for the group or company. It is based on sections 128 and 134(1) of, and paragraph 23 of Schedule 17 to, FA 2006.
1796.Subsection (3) requires the notice to be given to an “officer of Revenue and Customs” rather than to “the Commissioners of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs”. Subsection (4) requires that the date on the notice must be after the date the “officer” receives the notice. See Change 5 in Annex 1.
