(2)The following shall be deemed to be additions to a chassis for the purposes of this paragraph, namely—

(a)a driver's cab;

(b)accumulators used for the purpose of the supply of power for propulsion;

(c)in the case of a chassis for a tractor or locomotive designed for use as a component of a composite vehicle, a turntable, coupling gear or equivalent mechanism.

(3)Subject to the last foregoing sub-paragraph, it shall be for the Commissioners to determine for any chassis or type of chassis what parts and accessories are, for the purposes of this paragraph, to be deemed to belong to a complete chassis or to be additions thereto, and what type of any part or accessory deemed to belong to a complete chassis a chassis lacking that part or accessory is to be treated for those purposes as having.

(4)In exercising their powers under the last foregoing sub-paragraph, the Commissioners shall wherever practicable have regard to any standard commercial specification for the type of chassis in question.

2The fitting to a road vehicle chassis of items deemed to be additions thereto for the purposes of the foregoing paragraph shall not be treated as the application of a chargeable process.

3(1)In relation to road vehicle chassis, the enactments relating to purchase tax shall have effect as if—

(a)any dealing with a goods vehicle (and in particular any purchase, appropriation or application, or importation thereof) were a dealing with the vehicle's chassis; and

(b)goods vehicles were chargeable goods for the purposes of any reference to a business of, or a business including, the selling, or the letting out on hire, of chargeable goods;

and the fact that a chassis forms part of a vehicle shall not affect the operation in relation to the chassis of references in the said enactments to goods resulting from the application of a process, if when the process is completed the vehicle is a goods vehicle.

(2)In this paragraph the expression "goods vehicle" means a mechanically propelled road vehicle constructed or adapted for use for the carriage or haulage of goods or burden of any description not forming part of the vehicle or necessary for its propulsion or equipment, but does not include—

(a)vehicles which are chargeable goods under Group 35 in Part I of the Eighth Schedule to the Finance Act, 1948;

4Where the Commissioners are satisfied—

(a)that purchase tax has become chargeable in respect of a road vehicle chassis;

(b)that the chassis has been used for the construction of a vehicle which is neither a goods vehicle within the meaning of the last foregoing paragraph nor a vehicle falling within paragraph (a) or (d) of sub-paragraph (2) of that paragraph; and

(c)that the chassis has not previously been used for the construction of a vehicle;

the purchase tax chargeable in respect of the chassis shall be remitted or, if it has been paid, shall be repaid.

Part IIProvisions Adjusting Contractual Rights in Relation to Purchase Tax in respect of Road Vehicles

1(1)This Part of this Schedule applies to vehicles of the following description, that is to say:—

road vehicles constructed or adapted for use for the carriage or haulage of goods or burden of any description not forming part of the vehicle or necessary for its propulsion or equipment, being either mechanically propelled vehicles or vehicles designed for use as components of a composite vehicle which is mechanically propelled, and not being vehicles in respect of which purchase tax has become chargeable nor vehicles of the kinds mentioned in paragraphs (b), (c), (d), (e) and (h) of sub-paragraph (2) of paragraph 3 of Part I of this Schedule;

but applies to a vehicle of that description only where purchase tax would have become chargeable in respect of it if vehicles of that description had been made chargeable goods as from the first day of May, nineteen hundred and fifty.

(2)Any reference in this Part of this Schedule to a prospective liability by virtue of this Act to purchase tax shall be taken as a reference to a prospective liability to purchase tax arising from the charge of purchase tax on certain vehicles which was provided for by a resolution passed by the Committee of Ways and Means of the House of Commons on budget day.

(3)In this Part of this Schedule, the expression " relevant vehicle " means a vehicle to which this Part of this Schedule applies, the expression " budget day " means the eighteenth day of April, nineteen hundred and fifty, and the expression " process of manufacture " has the same meaning as in section sixteen of the Finance Act, 1946.

2Subject to paragraph 5 of this Part of this Schedule, where a relevant vehicle was sold in the course of a business under a purchase made after budget day and before the date of the passing of this Act at a price exceeding the price at which, in the ordinary course of that business, similar vehicles were sold or offered for sale immediately before budget day, the buyer shall be entitled to deduct from the price, or (if he has paid the price) to recover from the seller as money received by him for the use of the buyer, an amount equal to the excess, except in so far as the seller proves that the excess was included in the price by reference to matters other than—

(a)his prospective liability by virtue of this Act to purchase tax in respect of the vehicle; or

(b)any increase attributable to the prospective liability as aforesaid of any other person in the price charged to the seller on a contract made by him after budget day for the purchase of the vehicle or for the application of a process of manufacture resulting in the vehicle.

3Subject as aforesaid, where a relevant vehicle was sold under a purchase made on or before budget day and was delivered under the purchase on or after the first day of May, nineteen hundred and fifty, but before the date of the passing of this Act, and the seller has recovered from the buyer, as an addition to the price, any sum fixed by reference to his prospective liability by virtue of this Act to purchase tax in respect of the vehicle, the buyer shall be entitled to recover that sum from the seller as money received by him for the use of the buyer.

4The two last foregoing paragraphs shall apply where a contract (not being a contract of sale) was made for the application of a process of manufacture resulting in a relevant vehicle, as they would have applied if the contract bad been a contract for the sale of the vehicle to the person to whose order the process is applied by the person applying it to his order, but with the substitution—

(a)in paragraph 2 for the reference to similar vehicles being sold or offered for sale of a reference to contracts for similar operations being made or invited; and

(b)in paragraph 3 for the reference to the vehicle being delivered of a reference to the process being completed.

5(1)Where, in the case of a relevant vehicle, a transaction giving rise to any such prospective liability to purchase tax as is referred to in the foregoing provisions of this Part of this Schedule was one by reason of which purchase tax is chargeable in respect of the vehicle's chassis, any amount which apart from this paragraph might be deducted or recovered under those provisions as referable to that prospective liability, or to an increase of price attributable to that prospective liability , shall be reduced by the amount of the tax so chargeable.

(2)A person shall not be entitled to recover under subsection (2) of section twenty-four of the Finance Act, 1948, any tax in respect of which he is entitled to a reduction under the foregoing sub-paragraph.

SIXTH SCHEDULEDouble Taxation Relief

(b)where arrangements with the Government of the territory are for the time being in force by virtue of Part V of the Finance (No. 2) Act, 1945, credit for tax paid under the law of the territory shall not be allowable under this paragraph in the case of any income if any credit for that tax is allowable under those arrangements in the case of that income.

2Profits from or remuneration for personal or professional services performed in the territory shall be deemed to be income arising in the territory for the purpose of the preceding paragraph.

4The following provisions shall, without prejudice to the generality of the last preceding paragraph, have effect where the territory is within the Commonwealth territories—

(a)where the income arising in the territory is an ordinary dividend paid by a company which is resident in the territory, tax paid under the law of the territory by the company in respect of its profits shall be taken into account in considering whether any, and if so what, credit is to be allowed in respect of the dividend; and

(b)where the income arising in the territory is a dividend paid by a company resident in the territory on participating preference shares and represents both a dividend at the fixed rate to which the shares are entitled and an additional participation in profits, sub-paragraph (a) of this paragraph shall apply in relation to so much of the dividend as represents the said additional participation in profits as if that part of the dividend were an ordinary dividend.

Part IIAmendments of Ninth Schedule to the Finance Act, 1947, applicable to unilateral relief

(a)credit for the tax so paid shall not be allowed by way of unilateral relief against the profits tax; and

(b)the tax so paid may be deducted in computing the amount of the profits for profits tax purposes notwithstanding that credit (being credit by way of unilateral relief) falls to be allowed therefor against income tax; and

(c)where the income is, for income tax purposes, income of the year 1950-51, sub-paragraph (3) of paragraph 7 of Part I of the Ninth Schedule to the Finance Act, 1947, as modified by paragraph 2 of Part II of this Schedule, shall apply or not apply in relation to so much of the tax so paid as cannot be allowed as a credit against income tax according as the next chargeable accounting period of the trade or business in question does or does not end after the said end of March:

Provided that where the said next chargeable accounting period falls partly before and partly after the said end of March, the tax which would, but for this proviso, go to reduce the amount of the profits for the said next chargeable accounting period shall be apportioned between the two parts of the said next chargeable accounting period, and so much only of that tax as is apportioned to the second part of the period shall go to reduce the profits for that period.

2Where tax is paid under the law of a territory outside the United Kingdom in respect of income which, for profits tax purposes, is or forms part of the profits for a chargeable accounting period falling partly before and partly after the said end of March, the tax so paid shall be apportioned between the two parts of the period, and sub-paragraphs (a) and (b) of paragraph 1 of this Part of this Schedule shall apply in relation to the tax apportioned to the first part of the period as they apply in relation to income which, for profits tax purposes, is or forms part of the profits for a chargeable accounting period ending at or before the said end of March.

(b)paragraph 3 of this Part of this Schedule shall apply in relation to so much of the profits tax as is apportioned to the first part of the period as it applies in relation to profits tax for a chargeable accounting period ending at or before the said end of March.
