25Effect of cancellation of certificates granted under Finance Act, 1935, s. 25

(1)Where any certificate granted with respect to a scheme under section twenty-five of the Finance Act, 1935, is cancelled by the Board of Trade after the passing of this Act, and any deductible contributions paid in furtherance of the scheme have not been repaid at the expiration of one year from the cancellation, the body of persons carrying out the scheme shall, for the year of assessment in which the said year expires, be charged to income tax under Case VI of Schedule D upon the aggregate amount of the deductible contributions which have not been repaid at that time:

Provided that the charge shall not be made if the total amount of any contributions, other than deductible contributions, which have been paid under the scheme and have not been repaid before that time is greater than the available resources of the scheme, and shall not in any case be made upon an amount greater than the excess, if any, of those resources over that total amount. In this subsection the expression " available resources ", in relation to any scheme, means a sum representing the total funds held for the purposes of the scheme at the expiration of one year from the cancellation of the certificate plus a sum representing any funds held for the purposes of the scheme which, during that year, have been applied otherwise than in accordance with the provisions of the scheme as in force when the certificate was granted.

(2)Where the body of persons carrying out a scheme are charged to income tax by virtue of the preceding subsection, and, after the expiration of the said year, any deductible contribution paid in furtherance of the scheme is repaid, the amount upon which the charge is made shall be reduced by the amount repaid, and all such repayments of tax shall be made as are necessary to give effect to the provisions of this subsection.

(3)In this section, the expression " contribution " includes a part of a contribution, and the expression " deductible contribution " means a contribution allowed to be deducted under the said section twenty-five, any reduction thereof under Part III of the Fourth Schedule to this Act being left out of account.

(4)Subsection (5) of the said section twenty-five (which relates to the order in which contributions are to be deemed to be repaid) shall have effect for the purposes of this section as it has effect for the purposes of that section.
