Meaning of standard offshore tax penalty

2(1)A standard offshore tax penalty is a penalty that falls within sub-paragraph (2), (3) or (4).

(b)the inaccuracy for which the penalty is imposed involves an offshore matter or an offshore transfer,

(c)it is imposed for deliberate action (whether concealed or not), and

(d)the tax at stake is (or includes) capital gains tax, inheritance tax or asset-based income tax.

(3)A penalty falls within this sub-paragraph if—

(a)it is imposed under paragraph 1 of Schedule 41 to FA 2008 (penalty for failure to notify),

(b)the failure for which the penalty is imposed involves an offshore matter or an offshore transfer,

(c)it is imposed for a deliberate failure (whether concealed or not), and

(d)the tax at stake is (or includes) capital gains tax or asset-based income tax.

(6)In a case where the tax at stake in relation to a penalty includes a tax other than capital gains tax, inheritance tax or asset-based income tax, the standard offshore tax penalty is only that part of the penalty which relates to capital gains tax, inheritance tax or asset-based income tax.
