(2)After paragraph 67 insert—

Disclosure of information to foreign tax authorities etc

67A(1)If the Treasury by order declares that—

(a)international tax enforcement arrangements which are specified in the order have been made in relation to any territory or territories outside the United Kingdom in association with double taxation arrangements specified under paragraph 66 in the same or a previous order, and

Transitional provision

12(1)This paragraph applies where—

(a)an amount of the bank levy is treated as if it were an amount of corporation tax chargeable on an entity (“E”) for an accounting period of E,

(b)the chargeable period in respect of which the amount of the bank levy is charged falls (or partly falls) on or after 1 January 2012, and

(c)under the Instalment Payment Regulations, one or more instalment payments, in respect of the total liability of E for the accounting period, were treated as becoming due and payable before the commencement date (“pre-commencement instalment payments”).

(2)Paragraphs 2 to 10 are to be ignored for the purpose of determining the amount of any pre-commencement instalment payment.

(3)If there is at least one instalment payment, in respect of the total liability of E for the accounting period, which under the Instalment Payment Regulations is treated as becoming due and payable on or after the commencement date (“post-commencement instalment payments”), the amount of that instalment payment, or the first of them, is to be increased by the adjustment amount.

(4)If there are no post-commencement instalment payments, a further instalment payment, in respect of the total liability of E for the accounting period, of an amount equal to the adjustment amount is to be treated as becoming due and payable at the end of the period of 30 days beginning with the commencement date.

(5)“The adjustment amount” is the difference between—

(a)the aggregate amount of the pre-commencement instalments determined in accordance with sub-paragraph (2), and

(b)the aggregate amount of those instalment payments determined ignoring sub-paragraph (2) (and so taking account of paragraphs 2 to 10).

(6)In the Instalment Payment Regulations—

(a)in regulations 6(1)(a), 7(2), 8(1)(a) and (2)(a), 9(5), 10(1), 11(1) and 13, references to regulation 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, 5, 5A or 5B of those Regulations are to be read as including a reference to sub-paragraphs (1) to (5) (and in regulation 7(2) “the regulation in question”, and in regulation 8(2) “that regulation”, are to be read accordingly), and

(b)in regulation 9(3), the reference to those Regulations is to be read as including a reference to sub-paragraphs (1) to (5).

(7)In section 59D of TMA 1970 (general rule as to when corporation tax is due and payable), in subsection (5), the reference to section 59E is to be read as including a reference to this paragraph.

(8)In this paragraph—

  • “the chargeable period” is to be construed in accordance with paragraph 4 or (as the case may be) 5 of Schedule 19 to FA 2011;

  • “the commencement date” means the day on which this Act is passed;

  • “the Instalment Payment Regulations” means the Corporation Tax (Instalment Payments) Regulations 1998 (S.I. 1998/3175);

and references to the total liability of E for an accounting period are to be construed in accordance with regulation 2(3) of the Instalment Payment Regulations.
