Section 651: Disregard of rent from members
2018.This section sets out that where a self-build society is approved and makes a claim, any rent that it receives from its members is ignored for tax purposes. It is based on section 489(1) and (11) of ICTA.
2019.The source legislation is based on tax years, but as these bodies are subject to corporation tax it is more appropriate to operate on the basis of accounting periods. Moving to this basis also brings the disregard for rent into line with the chargeable gains exemption in section 652. See Change 46 in Annex 1.
