Finance Act 2012


1.Section 22 clarifies the legislation on manufactured overseas dividends (MODs). That legislation provides that where a MOD is received under deduction of tax, some or all of that tax may be treated as overseas tax. The change makes it clear that where there is a difference between the tax deducted, and the tax treated as overseas tax, the difference is not treated as income tax. This section also makes a similar change for deemed manufactured payments under some stock lending arrangements. The amendments have effect in relation to overseas dividends paid on or after 15 September 2011.
