during any part of the reporting period.

(4) If the fund does not provide the report to a participant by sending it to the participant by post, the fund must, if so required by the participant, make the report available to the participant in some further manner (whether or not that further manner is also specified in regulation 90(2)) as the fund and the participant may agree.

Meaning of “reporting period”

91.  In these Regulations a “reporting period” of a reporting fund means a period determined in accordance with the following rules—

First rule

If the reporting fund’s period of account is twelve months or less, the reporting period is the same as the period of account.

Second rule

If the reporting fund’s period of account is more than twelve months, there are two reporting periods.

The first reporting period is a period consisting of the first twelve months of the period of account.

The second reporting period is a period consisting of the remainder of the period of account.

Contents of report to participants

92.  (1)  The report to participants for a reporting period must include the following information—

(a)the amount actually distributed to participants per unit of interest in the fund in respect of the reporting period;

(b)the excess of the amount of the reported income per unit of interest in the fund for the reporting period over the amount actually distributed to participants per unit of interest in the fund in respect of the reporting period;

(c)the dates on which distributions were made;

(d)the fund distribution date (see regulation 94(4));

(e)a statement whether or not the fund remains a reporting fund at the date the fund makes the report available.

(2) In these Regulations the “reported income” of a reporting fund for a reporting period means the reportable income of the fund for the reporting period, computed by or on behalf of the fund, and provided, in the report for the reporting period, to the participants in the fund.

(3) For the purposes of paragraph (1)—

(c)the amount per unit of interest in the fund must be expressed to at least four decimal places of a pound (or other currency unit) of value per unit.

(4) If the amount of the reported income per unit of interest in the fund for the reporting period is equal to, or less than, the amount actually distributed to participants per unit of interest in the fund in respect of the reporting period, the amount to be stated for the purposes of paragraph (1)(b) is nil.

(5) This regulation is subject to regulation 93.
