(1)This section applies where a friendly society (“the transferor”) proposes to transfer any of its engagements under section 86 above to another friendly society (“the transferee”).

(2)Where—

[F1(a)the fulfilment of any of the engagements to be transferred will constitute–

(ii)in the case of a transferor to which neither of those subsections applies, the carrying on of insurance business in the United Kingdom, and]

(b)the transferee will, after taking the proposed transfer into account, be [F3required by rules made by the Authority under section 138 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 to maintain the margin of solvency required by such rules],

the transferee shall furnish the [F4Authority] with a report by the appropriate actuary as to whether it will immediately after the proposed transfer, possess that margin of solvency.

(3)Where—

(b)a report is not required to be furnished under subsection (2) above,

the [Authority] may direct the transferee to furnish the [F4Authority] with a report by the appropriate actuary as to whether it will, immediately after the proposed transfer, possess an excess of assets over liabilities.

(4)The appropriate actuary has a right of access at all times to the books, accounts and vouchers of the transferor and of the transferee, and is entitled to require from the officers of either society such information and explanations as he thinks necessary to enable him to prepare a report under this section.

(5)If the appropriate actuary fails to obtain all the information and explanations and the access to documents which, to the best of his knowledge and belief, are necessary for the purposes of a report under this section, he shall state that fact in his report.

(6)An officer of a transferor or of the transferee shall be guilty of an offence if he knowingly or recklessly makes to the appropriate actuary a statement (whether written or oral) which—

(b)is misleading, false or deceptive in a material particular.
