Modification of provisions of, and made under, the Corporation Tax Acts

3.—(1) This regulation applies in relation to the first period of account of a securitisation company in the case of which section 83(1) of the Finance Act 2005 does not apply by virtue of that section itself or regulation 2 (“the first period”) where—

(a)the company continues to be party to a capital market arrangement or a related transaction, or

(b)the company would continue to be a warehouse company if that section continued to apply.

(2) Where this regulation applies—

(a)there shall be treated as arising any adjustment that would have been made in accordance with section 64 of the Finance Act 2002 (adjustment on change of basis)(3) in any previous period of account had section 83 of the Finance Act 2005 not applied to that period;

(i)the prescribed period in regulation 3A shall be treated as beginning with the first period, and

(3) Any amount brought into account on the application of this regulation must be just and reasonable in the circumstances and with regard to whether as a result any amounts cease to be brought into account or are brought into account more than once.

Interpretation

4.  For the purposes of these Regulations—

(a)“party” to a capital market arrangement or a related transaction includes a party to an agreement which—

(i)forms part of the arrangement,

(ii)provides for the raising of finance as part of the arrangement, or

(iii)is necessary for the purposes of implementing the arrangement;

(b)one or more transactions are to be regarded as related transactions, in the case of any capital market arrangement, if it would be reasonable to assume, from either or both of—

(i)the likely effect of the transactions, and

(ii)the circumstances in which the transactions are entered into or effected,

that none of the transactions would have been entered into or effected independently of the arrangement;

(c)transactions are not prevented from being related transactions, in the case of any capital market arrangement, just because the transactions—

(i)are not between the same parties, or

(ii)are not between the parties to the capital market arrangement.
