(c)they are not excluded amounts (see subsections (4) to (7)).

(3)In a case where acquisition expenses (within the meaning of section 80) incurred in the accounting period fall to be debited in successive accounts drawn up for successive periods of account, those expenses are treated instead as if they were all debited in the accounts drawn up for the first of those periods of account.

(g)amounts payable in connection with a policy or contract to a policyholder or annuitant under the policy or contract or to any other person entitled to receive benefits under the policy or contract.

(5)For the purposes of subsection (4)(f) expenses or other amounts are “non-commercial amounts” payable by the company so far as the company’s purpose in incurring the liability to make the payment is not a business or other commercial purpose of the company.

(6)Amounts payable as mentioned in paragraph (g) of subsection (4) include—

(a)amounts payable to any person acting on behalf of a person within that paragraph, and

(b)amounts payable to the personal representatives of a deceased person who was (or acted on behalf of a person who was) within that paragraph.
