(b)in relation to notifiable contribution arrangements, if the person (“P”) is by virtue of sub-paragraph (a)(ii) or (iii) a promoter in relation to a notifiable contribution proposal which is implemented by those arrangements or if, in the course of a relevant business, P is to any extent responsible for—

(i)the design of the arrangements, or

(ii)the organisation or management of the arrangements.

(2) For the purposes of this Part a person is an introducer in relation to a notifiable contribution proposal if the person makes a marketing contact with another person in relation to the proposal.

(b)is carried on by a bank, as defined by section 1120 of the Corporation Tax Act 2010(1), or by a securities house, as defined by section 1009(3) of that Act.

(4) For the purposes of this regulation anything done by a company is to be taken to be done in the course of a relevant business if it is done for the purposes of a relevant business falling within paragraph (3)(b) carried on by another company which is a member of the same group.

(5) Section 170 of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992(2) has effect for determining for the purposes of paragraph (4) whether two companies are members of the same group, but as if in that section—

(a)for each of the references to a 75% subsidiary there were substituted a reference to a 51% subsidiary, and

(b)subsection (3)(b) and subsections (6) to (8) were omitted.

(6) For the purposes of this Part a person makes a firm approach to another person in relation to a notifiable contribution proposal if the person makes a marketing contact with the other person in relation to the proposal at a time when the proposed arrangements have been substantially designed.

(7) For the purposes of this Part a person makes a marketing contact with another person in relation to a notifiable contribution proposal if—

(a)the person communicates information about the proposal to the other person;

(b)the communication is made with a view to that other person, or any other person, entering into transactions forming part of the proposed arrangements; and

(c)the information communicated includes an explanation of the advantage in relation to any contribution that might be expected to be obtained from the proposed arrangements.

(8) For the purposes of paragraph (6) proposed contribution arrangements have been substantially designed at any time if by that time the nature of the transactions to form part of them has been sufficiently developed for it to be reasonable to believe that a person who wished to obtain the advantage mentioned in paragraph (7)(c) might enter into—

(a)transactions of the nature developed; or

(b)transactions not substantially different from transactions of that nature.
