THIRD SCHEDULEProvisions for giving effect to the change in the Standard Rate of Income Tax for the year 1931-32

1The amount payable by virtue of any assessment made before the passing of this Act shall, by virtue of this Act and without more, be treated as varied to such extent as is necessary to give effect to the change in the standard rate :

Provided that this paragraph shall not apply in the case of income chargeable under Schedule C, under Rule 6 or 7 of the Miscellaneous Rules applicable to Schedule D, or under Rule 21 of the General Rules.

2In the case of such income as is mentioned in the proviso to paragraph 1 of this Schedule, any deficiency in the amount of tax deducted from any payment made before the fifteenth day of October, nineteen hundred and thirty-one (being a deficiency arising by reason of the change in the standard rate) shall, so far as possible, be made good by increasing the deduction required or authorised by law to be made from the next payment and, if necessary, the deductions required or authorised by law to be made from subsequent payments (being a payment or payments made after the passing of this Act and before the fifteenth day of October, nineteen hundred and thirty-two) by an amount equal to the amount of the deficiency, and the deficiency so made good shall be accounted for and assessed in the same manner as the tax deducted from the original payment.

or the person by or through whom the payments were made, as the case may be,
