Finance Act 2014

Part 2

14.Part 2 makes changes to legislation consequential on Part 1 of the Schedule. Most of the changes are minor, ensuring that references to marginal relief and rates of CT are omitted or amended to apply only to ring fence profits where appropriate. For example:

  • Paragraph 6 amends paragraph 8 subsection (1) Schedule 18 FA 1998 (company tax returns, assessments and related matters) so that references to sections 19, 20 and 21 CTA 2010 (marginal relief for companies with small profits) are replaced by Chapter 3A Part 8 CTA 2010 (rates at which CT is charged on ring fence profits.)

  • Paragraph 15 subparagraphs (1) to (3) amend sections 614 and 618 CTA 2010 (authorised investment funds) so that the references to sections 18 and 19 CTA 2010 (marginal relief for companies with small profits) are omitted. Authorised investment funds cannot have ring fence profits and marginal relief will no longer be due.

15.Paragraphs 8 and 13 contain more significant amendments arising through replacement of the previous associated companies rules with the “related 51% group company” legislation in new section 279F. Paragraph 8 amends section 99 Capital Allowances Act (CAA) 2001 so that the “related 51% group company” rules are used to determine the amount of the monetary limit in computing capital allowances on long life assets. Paragraph 13 amends sections 357CL and 357CM CTA 2010 so that the “related 51% group company” rules are used to determine the profit limit for companies electing for small claims treatment under the Patent Box legislation.
