Finance Act 2014

Section 285: HMRC to Publish Reports

2.Subsections (1), (2) and (3) provides that HMRC must publish a report on the operation of the Code and if the Commissioners conclude that a group or entity has breached the Code during a reporting period they may name the group or entity. Subsection (3) deals with the circumstance where the Commissioners determine that there has been a breach of the Code and it is impractical to name the group or entity in the report for the period.

3.Subsections (4), (5) and (6) sets out those groups and entities that will be listed in the annual report. These are those groups and entities that are chargeable to bank levy, would be chargeable if it were not for the £200 million de minimis exemption, or those groups and entities which meet the definition of a bank in section 991 of Income Taxes Act 2007 other than where the entity is a building or friendly society. In the case of a group or entity in which either there is a UK or foreign bank(s) but where the wider group is a non-banking group, subsection (5) ensures that the annual report will only list the UK or foreign banks or UK banking sub-groups and not the wider group.
