(1)“Relief declaration return” means an annual tax on enveloped dwellings return which—

(c)specifies which type of relief it relates to.

(2)A relief declaration return may be made in respect of one or more single-dwelling interests.

(3)A relief declaration return delivered to an officer of Revenue and Customs on a particular day (“the day of the claim”) is treated as made in respect of any single-dwelling interest in relation to which the conditions in subsection (4) are met (but need not contain information which identifies the particular single-dwelling interest or interests concerned).

(4)The conditions are that—

(a)the person making the return is within the charge with respect to the single-dwelling interest on the day of the claim;

(b)the day of the claim is relievable in relation to the single-dwelling interest by virtue of a provision which relates to the type of relief specified in the return (see subsection (9));

(c)none of the days in the pre-claim period is a taxable day.

(5)The statement under subsection (1)(a) in a relief declaration return is treated as a claim for interim relief (see section 100) with respect to the single-dwelling interest (or interests) in respect of which the return is made.

(6)Subsection (7) applies where—

(a)a person has delivered to an officer of Revenue and Customs on any day a relief declaration return for a chargeable period with respect to one or more single-dwelling interests (“the existing return”), and

(b)there is a subsequent day (“day S”) in the same chargeable period on which the relevant conditions are met in relation to another single-dwelling interest.

(7)The existing return is treated as also made with respect to that other single-dwelling interest.

(8)For the purposes of subsection (6)(b), the “relevant conditions” are the same as the conditions in subsection (4), except that for this purpose references in subsection (4) to the day of the claim are to be read as references to day S.

(9)This table sets out the numbered types of relief to which the provisions specified in the left hand column relate—

(10)Where a person—

(a)has failed to make annual tax on enveloped dwellings returns in respect of two or more single-dwelling interests, and

(b)could have discharged the duties in question by making a single relief declaration return in respect of all the interests,

the failure may be taken, for the purposes of Schedule 55 to FA 2009, to be a failure to make a single annual tax on enveloped dwellings return.

(11)In this section—

  • “pre-claim period” has the same meaning as in section 100;

  • “taxable day”, in relation to a person and a single-dwelling interest, means a day on which the person is within the charge with respect to the interest, other than a day which is relievable in relation to the interest.

(2)In subsection (1) “return” means—

(5)In Schedule 33 (annual tax on enveloped dwellings: returns etc)—

(a)in paragraph 2(a), after “159” insert “, 159A”;

(b)in paragraph 20(1), for “in question, the self assessment included in that return” substitute “in question containing a self assessment, that self assessment”.

(6)The amendments made by subsections (1) to (5) have effect for chargeable periods beginning on or after 1 April 2015.

(7)In a case (not falling within section 109(5) of FA 2014) which falls within subsection (8), section 159 of FA 2013 (annual tax on enveloped dwellings return) has effect with the same modifications as are set out in section 109(6) of FA 2014 (which provides for extended filing periods in certain cases).

(8)The case is where—

(a)a person has a duty to deliver to an officer of Revenue and Customs an annual tax on enveloped dwellings return with respect to a single-dwelling interest for the chargeable period beginning with 1 April 2015, and

(b)the circumstances on the first day in that chargeable period on which that person is within the charge with respect to that single-dwelling interest are such that that duty could be discharged by the delivery to an officer of Revenue and Customs on that day of a relief declaration return.
