(3)Subject to Notes (7) to (10) below, non-deductible input tax is input tax to which Note (4) or (5) below applies.

(4) This Note applies to input tax which (disregarding this Group and regulation 106 of the Value Added Tax Regulations 1995 F153 (de minimis rule)) is not, and will not become, attributable to supplies to which section 26(2) applies.

(8) Subject to Note (9) below, the input tax that is taken to be non-deductible input tax shall include any VAT which—

(a)is deemed to be input tax of any person by virtue of Note (7) above; and

(b)those assets consisted of or included those goods or that thing; and

(c)the transfer of the assets is one falling by virtue of an Order under section 5(3) (or under an enactment re-enacted in section 5(3)) to be treated as neither a supply of goods nor a supply of services.

(13)This Note applies to a [F160person] in relation to any goods or thing if—

(a)those goods or that thing formed part of the assets of the business of that [F161person] at a time when it became a member of a group of which the putative successor was at that time the representative member;

(c)those goods or that thing formed part of the assets of the putative successor at a time when it ceased to be a member of a group of which the [F164person] in question was at the time the representative member.

(14)References in Note (13) above to a [F165person's] being or becoming or ceasing to be a member of a group or the representative member of a group are references to its falling to be so treated for the purposes of section 43.

(15)In Notes (11) to (13) above the references to anything comprised in other goods shall be taken, in relation to any supply consisting in or arising from the grant of a major interest in land, to include anything the supply, acquisition or importation of which is, by virtue of Note (2) above, taken to be a supply, acquisition or importation of goods used for making the supply so consisting or arising.
