Chapter 2U.K.Finance leases with return in capital form

IntroductionU.K.
614BArrangements to which this Chapter applies

(1)This Chapter applies to arrangements involving the lease of an asset that meet conditions A and B.

(2)Condition A is that in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice the arrangements fall to be treated as a finance lease or loan.

(3)Condition B is that the effect of the arrangements is that some or all of the return on investment in respect of the finance lease or loan—

(a)is or may be in the form of a sum that is not rent, and

(b)would not, apart from this Part and Part 21 of CTA 2010, be wholly brought into account for tax purposes as rent from the lease of the asset.

(4)It does not matter—

(a)when the arrangements are or have been entered into, or

(b)whether they are or have been entered into by companies or other persons.

614BAPurposes of this Chapter

(1)This section sets out the main purposes of this Chapter where there are any arrangements to which this Chapter applies.

(2)The first main purpose is to charge any person entitled to the lessor's interest under the lease of the asset to income tax on amounts of income determined as mentioned in subsections (3) and (4).

(3)The amounts referred to in subsection (2) are determined by reference to the amounts that fall for accounting purposes to be treated, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, as the income return on and after 26 November 1996 on investment in respect of the finance lease or loan.

(4)The amounts referred to in subsection (2) are also determined taking into account the substance of the matter as a whole, including, in particular, the state of affairs—

(a)as between connected persons, or

(b)within a group of companies,

as reflected or falling to be reflected in accounts of any of those persons or in consolidated group accounts.

(5)The second main purpose of this Chapter is, if the sum mentioned in section 614B(3)(a) that is not rent falls due, to recover by reference to that sum the whole or any part of the capital expenditure reliefs.

(6)In subsection (5) “the capital expenditure reliefs” means any reliefs, allowances or deductions that are or have been allowed or made in respect of capital expenditure incurred in respect of the leased asset.

Leases to which this Chapter appliesU.K.
614BBApplication of this Chapter

(1)This Chapter applies if—

(a)a lease of an asset is or has been granted, and

(b)the conditions in section 614BC are or have been met in relation to the lease at some time in a period of account of the current lessor.

(2)But this Chapter does not apply so far as, in relation to the current lessor, the lease falls to be regarded as a long funding lease for the purposes of Part 2 of CAA 2001 (plant and machinery allowances) in accordance with Chapter 6A of that Part (interpretation of provisions about long funding leases) (see section 70G of that Act).

(3)If the conditions in section 614BC have been met at some time in a period of account of the person who was at that time the lessor, they are taken to continue to be met for the purposes of this Chapter unless and until one of the conditions in subsection (4) is met.

(4)The conditions are that—

(a)the asset ceases to be leased under the lease, or

(b)the lessor's interest under the lease is assigned to a person who is not connected with any of the persons specified in subsection (5).

(5)Those persons are—

(a)the assignor,

(b)any person who was the lessor at some time before the assignment, and

(c)any person who at some time after the assignment becomes the lessor pursuant to arrangements made by a person who was the lessor, or was connected with the lessor, at some time before the assignment.

(6)If at any time the person who was the lessor at that time was a person within the charge to corporation tax on income, the reference in subsection (3) to the conditions in section 614BC having been met at that time includes a reference to the conditions in section 902 of CTA 2010 having been so met.

(7)Nothing in subsection (3) prevents this Chapter from applying again in relation to the lease where the lessor's interest is assigned if the conditions for its application are met after the assignment.

614BCThe conditions referred to in section 614BB(1)

(1)This section sets out the conditions required by section 614BB(1) to be met for this Chapter to apply (conditions A to E).

(a)the leasing arrangements fall for accounting purposes to be treated, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, as a finance lease or a loan, and

(b)subsection (3) or (4) applies.

(3)This subsection applies if the lessor (“L”), or a person connected with L, falls for accounting purposes to be treated, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, as the finance lessor in relation to the finance lease or loan.

(4)This subsection applies if the finance lease or loan falls for accounting purposes to be treated, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, as subsisting for the purposes of consolidated group accounts of a group of companies of which L is a member.

(5)Condition B is that, under the leasing arrangements, there is or may be payable to L, or to a person connected with L, a sum (a “major lump sum”) that is not rent but falls for accounting purposes to be treated, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice—

(a)as to part, as repayment of some or all of the investment in respect of a finance lease or loan, and

(b)as to part, as a return on investment in respect of a finance lease or loan.

(6)Condition C is that not all of that part of the sum that falls within subsection (5)(b) would, apart from this Chapter, fall to be brought into account for income tax purposes in tax years ending with the relevant tax year as the normal rent from the lease for periods of account of L.

(7)Condition D is that, in relation to L at the relevant time—

(a)the period of account of L in which the relevant time falls, or

(b)an earlier period of account of L during which L was the lessor,

is a period of account for which the accountancy rental earnings in respect of the lease exceed the normal rent for the period.

(8)Condition E is that at the relevant time—

(a)arrangements within section 614BE(1) exist, or

(b)paragraph (a) does not apply and circumstances within section 614BE(3) exist.

(9)Section 614BD supplements this section.

614BDProvisions supplementing section 614BC

(1)In section 614BC—

  • the relevant tax year”, in relation to a major lump sum, means—

    (a)

    the tax year which is related to the period of account of the lessor (“L”) in which the major lump sum is or may be payable in accordance with the leasing arrangements, or

    (b)

    if there are two or more such tax years, the latest of them, and

  • the relevant time” means the time as at which it must be determined for the purposes of section 614BB(1) or (3) whether the conditions in section 614BC are or, as the case may be, were met.

(2)For the meaning of a tax year being related to a period of account, see section 614DB(4).

(3)Subsection (4) applies for determining the normal rent for a period of account for the purpose of determining whether condition D in section 614BC is met as respects L unless subsection (5) applies.

(4)Rent that falls to be brought into account for income tax purposes as it falls due is treated—

(a)as accruing evenly throughout the period to which, in accordance with the terms of the lease, each payment falling due relates, and

(b)as falling due as it so accrues.

(5)This subsection applies if any such payment as is mentioned in subsection (4)(a) falls due more than 12 months after the time at which any of the rent to which that payment relates is treated as accruing under subsection (4)(a).

614BEThe arrangements and circumstances referred to in section 614BC(8)

(1)The arrangements referred to in section 614BC(8)(a) are arrangements under which—

(a)the lessee or a person connected with the lessee may acquire, whether directly or indirectly, the leased asset or an asset representing the leased asset from the lessor or a person connected with the lessor, and

(b)in connection with that acquisition, the lessor or a person connected with the lessor may receive, whether directly or indirectly, a qualifying lump sum from the lessee or a person connected with the lessee.

(2)In this section “qualifying lump sum” means any sum that is not rent but at least part of which would fall for accounting purposes to be treated, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, as a return on investment in respect of a finance lease or loan.

(3)The circumstances referred to in section 614BC(8)(b) are circumstances which make it more likely—

(a)that the events described in subsection (4) will occur, than

(b)that the event described in subsection (5) will occur.

(a)that the lessee or a person connected with the lessee will acquire, whether directly or indirectly, the leased asset or an asset representing the leased asset from the lessor or a person connected with the lessor, and

(b)that, in connection with that acquisition, the lessor or a person connected with the lessor will receive, whether directly or indirectly, a qualifying lump sum from the lessee or a person connected with the lessee.

(5)The event mentioned in subsection (3)(b) is that, before any such acquisition as is mentioned in subsection (4) takes place, the leased asset or, as the case may be, the asset representing the leased asset, will have been acquired, in a sale on the open market, by an independent third party.

(6)In subsection (5) “independent third party” means a person who—

(a)is not the lessor or the lessee, and

(b)is not connected with either of them.

(a)this Chapter applies in relation to the lease, and

(b)the accountancy rental earnings in respect of the lease for that period of account exceed the normal rent for that period.

(2)For income tax purposes, L is treated as if in that period of account L had been entitled to, and there had arisen to L, rent from the lease of an amount equal to those accountancy rental earnings (instead of the normal rent referred to in subsection (1)(b)).

(3)Such rent from the lease of an asset is treated for income tax purposes—

(a)as if it had accrued at an even rate throughout so much of the period of account as falls within the period for which the asset is leased, and

(b)as if L had become entitled to it as it accrued.

Reduction of taxable rent by cumulative rental excessesU.K.
614BGReduction of taxable rent by cumulative rental excesses: introduction

(1)This section and sections 614BH to 614BK provide for reductions of the taxable rent of a current lessor (“L”) under a lease to which this Chapter applies.

(2)In this section and sections 614BH to 614BK “taxable rent”, in relation to a period of account of L, means the amount that would, apart from those sections, be treated for income tax purposes as rent from the lease that arises to L in that period of account for the purpose of determining L's liability to tax for the related tax year or years.

(3)The reductions of taxable rent under sections 614BH to 614BK depend on there being—

(a)a cumulative accountancy rental excess for the period of account of L in question, or

(b)a cumulative normal rental excess for the period of account of L in question.

(4)For the meaning of “cumulative accountancy rental excess” and “cumulative normal rental excess”, see sections 614BH and 614BJ respectively.

614BHMeaning of “accountancy rental excess” and “cumulative accountancy rental excess”

(1)For the purposes of this Chapter, there is an “accountancy rental excess” in relation to the lease for a period of account of the current lessor (“L”) if the taxable rent in relation to the lease for the period is as a result of section 614BF (current lessor taxed by reference to accountancy rental earnings) an amount equal to the accountancy rental earnings.

(2)The amount of the accountancy rental excess for the period is equal to the difference between the accountancy rental earnings for the period and the normal rent for the period.

(3)But if the taxable rent for the period is reduced under section 614BK (reduction of taxable rent by the cumulative normal rental excess), there is only an accountancy rental excess for the period if—

(a)the accountancy rental earnings, reduced by an amount equal to the reduction under that section, exceed

(b)the normal rent.

(4)And in that case the amount of the accountancy rental excess for the period is equal to that excess.

(5)In this Chapter the “cumulative accountancy rental excess”, in relation to the lease and a period of account of L, means so much of the total of the accountancy rental excesses for previous periods of account of L (as increased under section 614BM: recovery of bad debts following reduction under section 614BL) as has not been—

(a)set off under section 614BI (reduction of taxable rent by the cumulative accountancy rental excess) against the taxable rent for any such previous period,

(b)reduced under section 614BL (relief for bad debts: reduction of cumulative accountancy rental excess), or

(c)set off under section 37A of TCGA 1992 (consideration on disposal of certain leases) against the consideration for a disposal.

614BIReduction of taxable rent by the cumulative accountancy rental excess

(1)This section applies if a period of account of the current lessor (“L”) is one for which—

(a)the normal rent in relation to the lease exceeds the accountancy rental earnings, and

(b)there is a cumulative accountancy rental excess.

(2)The taxable rent for the period of account is reduced by setting against it the cumulative accountancy rental excess (but not so as to reduce that rent below the amount of the accountancy rental earnings).

(3)But see section 614BL(3) and (4) (under which the amount of the cumulative accountancy rental excess which may be set against the taxable rent is limited in some circumstances).

614BJMeaning of “normal rental excess” and “cumulative normal rental excess”

(1)For the purposes of this Chapter, there is a “normal rental excess” in relation to a lease for any period of account of the current lessor (“L”) throughout which the leasing arrangements fall for accounting purposes to be treated, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, as a finance lease or loan if—

(a)the normal rent for the period, exceeds

(b)the accountancy rental earnings for the period.

(2)The amount of the normal rental excess for that period is equal to that excess.

(3)But if the taxable rent for the period is reduced under section 614BI (reduction of taxable rent by the cumulative accountancy rental excess), there is only a normal rental excess for the period if—

(a)the normal rent, reduced by an amount equal to the reduction under that section, exceeds

(b)the accountancy rental earnings.

(4)And in that case the amount of the normal rental excess for the period is equal to that excess.

(5)In this Chapter “cumulative normal rental excess”, in relation to the lease and a period of account of L, means so much of the total of the normal rental excesses for previous periods of account of L (as increased under section 614BO: recovery of bad debts following reduction under section 614BN) as has not been—

(a)set off under section 614BK (reduction of taxable rent by the cumulative normal rental excess) against the taxable rent for any such previous period, or

(b)reduced under section 614BN (relief for bad debts: reduction of cumulative normal rental excess).

614BKReduction of taxable rent by the cumulative normal rental excess

(1)This section applies if a period of account of the current lessor (“L”) is one for which—

(a)the taxable rent in relation to the lease is as a result of section 614BF (current lessor taxed by reference to accountancy rental earnings) an amount equal to the accountancy rental earnings, and

(b)there is a cumulative normal rental excess.

(2)The taxable rent for the period of account is reduced by setting against it the cumulative normal rental excess (but not so as to reduce that rent below the amount of the normal rent).

(3)But see section 614BN(3) and (4) (under which the amount of the cumulative normal rental excess which may be set against the taxable rent is limited in some circumstances).

(3)Subsections (4) and (5) apply if for that period the accountancy rental earnings in relation to the lease do not exceed the normal rent.

(4)The amount of the cumulative accountancy rental excess that may be set against the taxable rent for that period under section 614BI(2) (reduction of taxable rent by the cumulative accountancy rental excess) is limited to the amount (if any) by which the normal rent exceeds the bad debt deduction.

(5)If for that period the bad debt deduction exceeds the normal rent, the cumulative accountancy rental excess for that period is reduced by the amount of that excess (but not so as to reduce the amount of that rental excess below nil).

(6)In this section—

  • bad debt deduction”, in relation to a period of account of the lessor, means the total of any sums falling within section 35(1)(a), (b) or (c) of ITTOIA 2005 in respect of amounts in respect of rents from the lease of the asset which are deductible as expenses for that period, and

(6)The amount of rent mentioned in subsection (5)—

(a)is in addition to any other rent from the lease for period 1, and

(b)is left out of account for the purposes of section 614BF (current lessor taxed by reference to accountancy rental earnings).

(7)Rent within subsection (5) is treated for income tax purposes as if it had accrued and L had become entitled to it immediately before the end of period 1.

(8)If, on the continuous application assumption, there would be an amount of cumulative normal rental excess for period 2, that amount is the cumulative normal rental excess for period 2.

(9)In this section “the continuous application assumption” means the assumption that this Chapter (other than this section) had applied in the case of the lease at all times on or after 26 November 1996.

(10)If at any time the person who was the lessor at that time was a person within the charge to corporation tax on income, the reference in subsection (9) to this Chapter (other than this section) includes a reference to Chapter 2 of Part 21 of CTA 2010 (other than section 923 of that Act).
