Finance Act 2012

Details of the Section

2.Subsection (1) introduces amendments to the provisions in Part 17 of the Corporation Tax Act 2010 (CTA 2010) which cover the treatment of companies receiving MODs.

3.Where a company receives a MOD, and tax has been deducted under section 922(2) of the Income Tax Act 2007 (ITA 2007), then sections 792 and 793 of CTA 2010 provide that some or all of the tax deducted may be treated as overseas tax.

4.Subsection (2) inserts a new subsection (8) into section 793 of CTA 2010.    The new subsection provides that if the amount mentioned in section 792(3)(b) (that is, the amount treated as withheld on account of overseas tax) is not the amount deducted under section 922(2) of ITA 2007, then nothing in the Tax Acts has the effect that the difference between the amounts is to be regarded as an amount on account of income tax.

5.Section 812 of CTA 2010 provides that where there is a stock lending arrangement, dividend or interest income is received by someone other than the lender of the security, and the arrangement does not provide for the lender to receive payments representing the dividend or interest, then the borrower is deemed to have paid a manufactured payment to the lender on the date when the real dividend or interest was paid. Sub-sections 812 (4) and (5) have the effect that tax withheld from these deemed manufactured payments is not treated as overseas tax.

6.Subsection (3) inserts new subsection (5A) into section 812 which provides that any amount, that would otherwise have been treated as an amount withheld on account of overseas tax from the dividends arising in the circumstances covered by section 812, is not an amount on account of income tax.

7.Subsection (4) provides  that the amendments made  by this section  have effect  in relation to overseas dividends  paid  on or after 15 September 2011.
