(6)In relation to a withdrawal specified under paragraph 7(4), sub-paragraph (3) has effect as if it provided as follows—

(3)Where, at the time an amount becomes payable under sub-paragraph (2) in the case of the withdrawal, there is a plan manager of the Lifetime ISA (“the original”) or any Lifetime ISA that in accordance with Treasury regulations is a successor to the original—

(a)each such plan manager, and the investor, are jointly and severally liable to HMRC for the amount payable under sub-paragraph (2),

(b)the liability under paragraph (a) of a plan manager of a Lifetime ISA is limited to the amount or value of the investments from time to time held under that Lifetime ISA, and
