Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Amendments of Chapter 4 of Part 2 of CTA 2010

3After section 9 of that Act insert—

9ADesignated currency of a UK resident investment company

(1)The designated currency of a UK resident investment company is the currency which the company elects as its designated currency.

(2)A company (“X”) may elect a currency as its designated currency only if—

(a)at the time the election is made condition A or B is met, or

(b)the election is made in the period (if any) beginning with the company’s incorporation and ending immediately before its first accounting period.

(3)But an election made under subsection (2)(b) is void if, at the time X’s first accounting period begins, neither condition A nor condition B is met.

(4)Condition A is that a significant proportion of X’s assets and liabilities are denominated in the currency.

(5)Condition B is that—

(a)the currency is the functional currency of another company, and

(b)it is reasonable to assume that the two companies will meet the consolidation condition.

(6)X and another company (“Y”) meet the consolidation condition at any time if—

(a)for a period which includes that time, the financial results of X are comprised in financial statements of Y’s group prepared in accordance with acceptable accounting practice, or

(b)if no financial statements of the group are prepared in accordance with acceptable accounting practice for a period which includes that time, the financial results of X would be comprised in financial statements of Y’s group for a period which includes that time if such statements were prepared in accordance with international accounting standards.

(7)In subsection (6)—

  • “financial statements of the group” means consolidated financial statements of Y and its subsidiaries (within the meaning of section 351 of TIOPA 2010),

  • “Y’s group” means a group of which Y is the ultimate parent (and for this purpose “group” and “ultimate parent” have the same meaning as they have for the purposes of Part 7 of that Act (see sections 338 and 339)), and

  • “acceptable accounting practice” means—

    (a)

    international accounting standards,

    (b)

    UK generally accepted accounting practice, or

    (c)

    accounting practice which is generally accepted in the country in which Y is resident.

(8)A currency is the designated currency of X for a period of account if the election in respect of that currency has effect throughout that period (see section 9B).

9BPeriod for which an election under section 9A has effect

(1)An election under section 9A(2)(a) takes effect at the beginning of the day specified in the election as the day on which it takes effect (which must be later than the day on which the election is made).

(2)An election under section 9A(2)(b) is treated as taking effect at the time of X’s incorporation.

(3)An election under section 9A(2)(a) may be revoked by notice of the revocation being given to an officer of Revenue and Customs before the election takes effect.

(4)Subject to that, an election has effect until immediately before—

(a)the day on which another election by X takes effect, or

(b)the day on which a revocation event occurs,

(whichever first occurs).

(5)A revocation event occurs in a period of account (other than a period to which subsection (6) applies) if, at any time during that period—

(a)it is not the case that a significant proportion of X’s assets and liabilities are denominated in the currency to which the election relates, and

(b)it is not the case that the currency is the functional currency of another company which, with X, met the consolidation condition (within the meaning of section 9A(6)) at any time during the preceding period of account.

(6)Where the election is made under section 9A(2)(b), a revocation event occurs in the period of account in which X’s first accounting period begins only if—

(a)Condition A and not Condition B is satisfied at the beginning of that accounting period, and

(b)the condition in subsection (5)(a) is met at any time during the period of account but after the first accounting period begins.

(7)Subsections (8) and (9) apply if a period of account of X (“the straddling period of account”) begins before, and ends on or after, the day on which—

(a)an election under section 9A(2)(a) takes effect, or

(b)a revocation event occurs.

(8)It is to be assumed, for the purposes of this Chapter, that the straddling period of account consists of two separate periods of account—

(a)the first beginning with the straddling period of account and ending immediately before that day, and

(b)the second beginning with that day and ending with the straddling period of account,

and X’s profits and losses are to be computed accordingly for the purposes of corporation tax.

(9)For those purposes, it is to be assumed—

(a)that X prepares its accounts for each of the two periods in the same currency, and otherwise on the same basis, as it prepares its accounts for the straddling period of account, and

(b)that if the accounts for the straddling period of account, in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice, identify a currency as X’s functional currency, the accounts for each of the two periods do likewise.

(10)In this section references to “X” are to be construed in accordance with section 9A.
