Finance Act 2012

Double taxation relief

40.Part 7 of Schedule 19 to the Finance Act 2011 provides for double taxation relief to be given where a bank or banking group is doubly charged to the UK bank levy and an equivalent foreign levy.

41.Information regarding taxes is often exchanged by the United Kingdom with other territories using Exchange of Information articles in arrangements regarding Income Tax, Corporation Tax and Capital Gains Tax. However where such arrangements do not provide for Exchange of Information in respect of taxes of all kinds or the other territory does not consider their levy to be a tax then those arrangements cannot be used to exchange information relating to the bank levies.

42.The new provision is modelled on the legislation that enacts similar international tax enforcement arrangements for Income Tax, Corporation Tax and Capital Gains Tax.
