Changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act associated Parts and Chapters:

Whole provisions yet to be inserted into this Act (including any effects on those provisions):

[F1259FACircumstances in which the Chapter appliesU.K.
This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)This Chapter applies if conditions A to C are met.

(2)Condition A is that a company is a multinational company.

(3)For the purposes of this Chapter, a company is a multinational company if—

(a)it is resident in a territory outside the United Kingdom (“the parent jurisdiction”) for the purposes of a tax charged under the law of that territory, and

(b)it is within the charge to corporation tax because it carries on a business in the United Kingdom through a permanent establishment in the United Kingdom.

(4)Condition B is that, disregarding the provisions mentioned in subsection (5), there is an amount (“the PE deduction”) that—

(a)may (in substance) be deducted from the company's income for the purposes of calculating the company's taxable profits for an accounting period (“the relevant PE period”) for corporation tax purposes, and

(b)is in respect of a transfer of money or money's worth from the company in the United Kingdom to the company in the parent jurisdiction that—

(i)is actually made, or

(ii)is (in substance) treated as being made for corporation tax purposes.

[F2(4A)For the purposes of this section “the PE deduction” does not include—

(a)a debit in respect of amortisation that is brought into account under section 729 or 731 of CTA 2009 (writing down the capitalised cost of an intangible fixed asset), or

(b)an amount that is deductible in respect of amortisation under a provision of the law of a territory outside the United Kingdom that is equivalent to either of those sections.]

(5)The provisions are—

(a)this Chapter and Chapters 7 to 10, and

(b)any equivalent provision under the law of a territory outside the United Kingdom.

(6)Condition C is that it is reasonable to suppose that, disregarding the provisions mentioned in subsection (5)—

(a)the circumstances giving rise to the PE deduction will not result in—

(i)an increase in the taxable profits of the company for any permitted taxable period, or

(ii)a reduction of a loss made by the company for any permitted taxable period,

for the purposes of a tax charged under the law of the parent jurisdiction, or

(b)those circumstances will result in such an increase or reduction for one or more permitted taxable periods, but the PE deduction exceeds the aggregate effect on taxable profits.

(7)“The aggregate effect on taxable profits” is the sum of—

(a)any increases, resulting from the circumstances giving rise to the PE deduction, in the taxable profits of the company, for a permitted taxable period, for the purposes of a tax charged under the law of the parent jurisdiction, and

(b)any amounts by which a loss made by the company, for a permitted taxable period, for the purposes of a tax charged under the law of the parent jurisdiction, is reduced as a result of the circumstances giving rise to the PE deduction.

[F3(7A)For the purposes of subsections (6) and (7) any increase in taxable profits or reduction of losses is to be ignored in any case where tax is charged at a nil rate under the law of the parent jurisdiction.]

(8)In this Chapter “the excessive PE deduction” means—

(a)where paragraph (a) of subsection (6) applies, the PE deduction, or

(b)where paragraph (b) of subsection (6) applies, the PE deduction so far as it is reasonable to suppose that it exceeds the aggregate effect on taxable profits.

(9)For the purposes of subsections (6) and (7) a taxable period of the company, for the purposes of a tax charged under the law of the parent jurisdiction, is “permitted” if—

(a)the period begins before the end of 12 months after the end of the relevant PE period, or

(b)where the period begins after that—

(i)a claim has been made for the period to be a permitted period for the purposes of subsections (6) and (7), and

(ii)it is just and reasonable for the circumstances giving rise to the PE deduction to affect the profits or loss made for that period rather than an earlier period.

(10)Section 259FB contains provision for counteracting the excessive PE deduction.]
