Finance Act 2014


1.This section amends the legislation which applies to those holdings in unit trusts,            open-ended investment companies (OEIC) and offshore funds which are treated as loan relationships. It extends the existing treatment of distributions from authorised investment funds, so that distributions from any type of fund in which a company has a relevant holding are not treated as distributions for corporation tax purposes, and so fall within the loan relationships legislation instead. It also introduces a new anti-avoidance provision which sets out that where a company has a holding in a fund which is treated as a loan relationship and arrangements are entered into to obtain a tax advantage for any person, then adjustments must be made to counteract that tax advantage.
